Alan Brown: On the previous intervention about there being a limited amount of money that can only go so far, did the £1.6 billion allocated for a nil rate stamp duty on houses worth up to £500,000 help the poorest, the richest, or a combination of the richest and the housebuilders’ profits?

Universal Credit and Working Tax Credits (15 Sep 2021)

Bridget Phillipson: ...their jobs. And today we are debating cutting universal credit. Again and again, this Government look first to working people, rather than looking across the piece at our tax system. There was a stamp duty holiday for buy-to-let landlords and second home owners, but they have taken £1,000 a year out of the incomes of working people who are doing all that is asked of them. The most recent...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Second Reading (14 Sep 2021)

Baroness Bryan of Partick: ...many long-held rights with threats of substantial fines or lengthy jail sentences? One suspects this is an exercise in political power. As the Government have a majority, they will exercise it to stamp their mark on society. Bad laws lead to a lack of respect for law. Placing conditions on people organising protests that cannot be measured or assessed in advance must be intended to...

Health and Social Care Levy Bill: Clause 1 - Health and social care levy (14 Sep 2021)

Jesse Norman: ...dedicated to the idea of arguing for a wealth tax, acknowledged that the UK is on par with G7 countries as regards a wealth tax. Under a more inclusive definition—one that includes, for example, stamp duty land tax—the UK is near the top of the G7 countries in terms of a wealth tax. My right hon. Friend the Member for Wokingham talked about hypothecation; I perfectly understand that....

Health and Social Care Levy Bill (14 Sep 2021)

Geraint Davies: ..., we could have a larger tax footprint, which would be fairer. Obviously companies such as Amazon should pay more and there should be a transactions tax. Landlords have made capital gains through stamp duty holidays and with interest rates at low levels, and we should also look at a carbon border tax at a time when China is producing more emissions than the United States and the EU...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Examination of Witnesses (9 Sep 2021)

...£15 billion, and developments have made £2 billion since the catastrophic events at Grenfell. Government have supported them through the Help to Buy scheme and through instantly having a stamp duty land tax relief, and there is a mortgage guarantee scheme for first-time buyers that is open to everyone. The figure that always bothers me more than anything is the amount of money that the...

Health and Social Care Levy (8 Sep 2021)

Mike Wood: ...those who earn more pay more. I think the shadow Chancellor suggested that this could be funded by charges on the sale of land, property and shares, but the truth is that combined revenues from all stamp duties on land, property and shares comes to about £15 billion, which is nothing like enough to pay for what is needed. So national insurance is the fairest option. Gordon Brown was...

Prime Minister: Engagements (8 Sep 2021)

Keir Starmer: ..., took £8 billion out of social care before the pandemic, and then wasted billions of pounds of taxpayers’ money on dodgy contracts, vanity projects and giveaways to their mates. They cut stamp duty on second home owners, gave super tax deductions for the biggest companies and now they are telling millions of working people that they must cough up more tax. Is this not the same old Tory...

Affordable Housing in the South-West (7 Sep 2021)

Christopher Pincher: the full rate. That means that the owners of those properties will be paying 100% council tax, contributing fully to their local communities. In 2016, the Government introduced higher rates of stamp duty land tax for those purchasing additional properties at three percentage points above the current rate, which are part of the Government’s commitment to support first-time buyers. I am...

Summer Adjournment (22 Jul 2021)

Meg Hillier: ...feel that I should remind the House—of the very real housing challenge that so many of my constituents are facing. We have a Government who are fuelling demand for housing through things such as stamp duty holidays, but who are doing nowhere near enough to increase supply. There are far too many people in my borough living in seriously overcrowded conditions. I have visited many in...

Building Safety Bill (21 Jul 2021)

Geraint Davies: .... People’s lives have been blighted, their finances have been torpedoed, their mental health is in tatters and it is completely unnecessary. The Government subsidised second-home purchasers with stamp duty in England to a total of something like £5 billion. That was completely unnecessary, because interest rates actually went down during covid and there was no need to prop up the...

Prime Minister: Engagements (21 Jul 2021)

Boris Johnson: My hon. Friend is a massively effective advocate for the people of North Devon. She has made these points to me before, and I know that she is right.

Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [HL] - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 76 (19 Jul 2021)

Lord Adonis: then supposed to be volunteered under a scheme, which is very haphazard, and go to the Treasury or a designated public authority. That was a fatal flaw in the design of the levy. It is like stamp duty being given to estate agencies, which have to pay the money to the Treasury only after they have paid all their expenses, paid into every imaginary marketing scheme that they can think...
