Gentleman was particularly fortunate last year, because, owing to the boom in industrial shares on the Stock Exchange, his receipts from Stamp Duties exceeded the estimate by £1,500,000.

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Credits Bill. (9 May 1928)

Mr Edward Ruggles-Brise: .... The financial cost must be kept as low as possible. The fees for registration must be kept low. In Clause 8, there is express provision made that the agricultural charges shall be exempt from Stamp Duty, and I should like that privilege to be extended to long-term credits. As regards mortgages which will come into force with the long-term credits, there should be no Stamp Duty, or, if it...

Orders of the Day — Dog Racing Bill. (11 May 1928)

Reverend James Barr: ...those amusements to which gambling may cling, but which are essentially sports, and those which more directly cater to the gambling instinct.

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Railway Freight Rebates. (22 Nov 1928)

Lieut-Colonel Wilfrid Ashley: .... In this connection, I should like to pay a tribute here to the way in which the railway companies met us. They are doing it willingly, and primarily it is because they think it is their patriotic duty to do so. It has given them a good deal of trouble. It may be said, and I hope it is true, that eventually this will result in an increase of traffics and that therefore they will benefit,...

Orders of the Day — New Clause. — (Duties of Chairman of Communications Company.) (10 Dec 1928)

Mr Edward Grenfell: .... We have only to consider the people who have been advising the Government in this matter, and in all matters of difficulty; whether it is Sir William McLintock, Sir Otto Niemeyer, or Sir Josiah Stamp.

Mr Frederick Pethick-Lawrence: ..."shall" instead of "may" we have this fact, that in the Act of 1875 the word used is "may," and the principal change which the Bill is proposing in this respect is to lay down that it shall be the duty of the local authority to recover expenses under this Clause.

Mr Stanley Baldwin: ...may think expedient.

Orders of the Day — Post Office. (4 Mar 1929)

Sir Gerald Hohler: inquiry of the Postmaster-General. We have heard about the request for a reduction of letter postage to one penny. Personally, I do not agree with it at all. We were told some years ago when the stamp duty on cheques was increased from 1d. to 2d. that it would hit trade and that the use of cheques would steadily be diminished. Trade has not been hindered in any way while the number of...

Mr Philip Snowden: ...years. He cited the increased consumption of tea as a proof, but that claim cuts both ways, and he himself put another construction upon that matter when speaking about the reduction of the Tea Duty.

Civil Estimates, 1929.: Ministry of Labour. (24 Apr 1929)

Mr Samuel Hammersley: ...we will call up 95 per cent. There is a reason for letting off the 5 per cent., because this Government, in the Finance Bill of 1926 I think it was, gave facilities to amalgamations in respect of stamp duties if they got in 90 per cent. of the shares. In other circumstances, where the financial position of the mill is not so bad, the capital to be called up should be on a sliding scale....
