Business of the House (15 Oct 2020)

Felicity Buchan: People throughout the country are benefiting from this Government’s stamp duty holiday. However, given the high property prices in central London, many of my constituents are not benefiting. Does my right hon.

Planning and House Building (8 Oct 2020)

Siobhain McDonagh: ...alone. Let us get some money out there and get those homes back into use. No. 5: How can it be right that one in 10 adults owns a second home while four in 10 do not own their first? Even the stamp duty holiday is exacerbating that difference.

Scottish Parliament: United Kingdom Budget Delay (6 Oct 2020)

Kate Forbes: ...relative performance of our tax is critical to our overall spending envelope. I presume that, for the land and buildings transaction tax, we will have to react to what the UK Government does with stamp duty land tax when it sets its budget.

Tim Farron: ...6 million a year to subsidise very wealthy people who can afford to have a second home.
