Oral Answers to Questions — Government Departments.: Revenue Stamping Office, Bristol. (6 Apr 1927)

Mr Ronald McNeill: I regret that it is not possible, consistently with economy, to provide more than one officer qualified to assess the stamp duty on documents presented for stamping. So long as the volume of work continues to justify only one such officer, I trust that business houses in Bristol will bear with the inconvenience of midday closing.

Mr Winston Churchill: ...£9,250,000, and of that about £8,000,000, principally on Beer and Spirits, is attributable to the strike or stoppage. The Post Office lost about £500,000 from the same cause.

The effects of the stoppage on Income Tax and on...

Orders of the Day — Amendment of Law. (12 Apr 1927)

Sir George Gillett: ...of these hidden reserves to help him. We shall see whether that is so in a year's time. The right hon. Gentleman has not imposed any great taxation on the masses of the people, beyond the Tobacco Duty, which may not be seriously felt. He is fortunate in being able to find money by this means. Beyond that, one cannot offer him any great congratulation on his Budget. We can only hope that a...

Orders of the Day — Amendment of Law. (13 Apr 1927)

Mr William Graham: ..., perhaps inevitable, weaknesses in its review. Finally, he came down to a small sub-Committee of the Cabinet which was to have authority and power and which should be entrusted with very large duties in this connection. I do not know that that is a solution of the problem. The members of the Cabinet in any Government are all very busy men. They might achieve some of the results which the...

Mr Albert Alexander: ...but wherever possible to decrease, and ultimately to abolish altogether, the taxes on food. Therefore I hope to get some sympathy from the Chancellor of the Exchequer for a reduction of the duty on tea this year. Before dealing with the question of the Tea Duty I should like to draw his attention to the proportion of indirect to direct taxation. I was rather astonished to hear his estimate...

Income Tax.: Transfer of Sum from Road Fund to Exchequer. (27 Apr 1927)

Mr George Hardie: ...with this question of moisture, because what is now being done in this matter is no protection to the public at all. It is the same principle as that which I pointed out yesterday in regard to the Stamp Duty. Care should be taken whenever we put on a duty to see that we have some form of protection for the consumer. In this case there is no protection given at all and no regulation, and...

Orders of the Day — Trade Disputes and Trade Unions Bill.: Clause 1. — (Illegal Strikes.) (17 May 1927)

Mr Shapurji Saklatvala: ...been made amply clear that the present series of Amendments before the Committee are making the original Bill a little worse than it was before. The Attorney-General, as would befit a person of his stamp, quite clearly evaded the real issue. He himself emphatically pointed out, by paraphrasing a few words, that every sympathetic strike would become in fact illegal, though he kept putting...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (19 May 1927)

Sir Waldron Smithers: ...distribution, but that is not the point which I wish to bring to the notice of the Chancellor of the Exchequer. The point is that by issuing shares of no par value there is no Inland Revenue Duty stamp payable upon those shares. All bearer shares and bonds representing paid-up values have to be stamped, before they become a legitimate transfer from the buyer to the seller, with an...

Mr George Garro-Jones: 32. asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that a large joint stock bank has introduced a system of unstamped receipts to supersede, in certain cases, the use of cheques for sums under two pounds; that this innovation will result in an exemption from Stamp Duty which it has not been thought justifiable to confer by direct legislation; that the new receipts give to the...

Civil Estimates, 1927.: India Office. (17 Jun 1927)

Viscount Turnour: ...and hon. Gentlemen opposite claim for British industries, namely, safeguarding. Up to the present we hold the power, and the Viceroy exercises the power, of deciding whether there shall be duties, countervailing duties or tariffs, on certain things. There is at the moment a considerable controversy on the subject of tariffs in regard to iron and steel and things of that kind. I do not...

Mr Philip Lloyd-Greame: So far as can be ascertained from the information immediately available, duties of a character generally similar to the Stamp Duty in this country, to which my hon. Friend refers, are levied in the Union of South Africa and in New South Wales. The amount is, in the Union 5s. per cent., and, in New South Wales, 2s. per cent., with a, maximum duty of £50. Annual licence duties of varying...

Mr Rhys Davies: ...make a charge for the preparation of the documents relating to the loan, not exceeding the sum of 1s. for every £10 lent. More than that, he can also get a charge equal to the actual amount of the Stamp Duty paid by him upon any such document. There are three things, but it does not stop there, for see what else he gets. As a matter of fact, if it went very much further, I do not think...

Civil Estimates, 1927.: Clause 15. — (Amendments of 10 Geo. 4 c. 50.) (12 Jul 1927)

Lieut-Colonel Walter Guinness: I beg to move, in page 12, line 30, after the word "whatsoever," to insert the words "on the ground that it is." This Clause repeals the exemption from Stamp Duty which is conferred in various statutes in the case of transactions with the Commissioners of Crown lands. As provided here, it goes too far, because there are enactments conferring general exemption from Stamp Duty in such classes...

Mr George Lansbury: ..., "sees red" and that his otherwise good judgment is blurred when dealing with a certain type of foreigner. The right hon.
