Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (25 Apr 1929)

Mr Arthur Samuel: statement on page 18 of White Paper No. 84. Out of a total of receipts from taxation of £666,000,000, direct taxes—Inland Revenue taxes, which comprise Income Tax, Super-tax, Estate Duty, Stamp Duty, Excess Profits Duty, Corporation Profits Duty and Land Tax—none of these are indirect taxes—amount to no less than £412,000,000. The balance of £250,000,000, which is...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (25 Apr 1929)

Sir Basil Peto: I was just dealing with the question of the Sugar Duty, on which the hon. Member for Peckham told the House that its remission would have been of much more value to working-class families than the remission of the Tea Duty contained in this Bill. I say that the effect of the differentiation made in the last Finance Act, amounting to a farthing a pound, has been almost miraculous. It has...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (3 May 1929)

Mr Arthur Samuel: ...have got it down for their benefit as I showed the other day. If you take out of the 35.61 per cent. of indirect taxation the theoretical indirect taxes upon oil, silk and betting, and the McKenna duties, 3.77 per cent., the figure is 31.84 per cent. for indirect taxation, which is below the figure of the Socialist Government and the lowest on record. There is a point which was never...

Orders of the Day — Coast Protection Bill. (29 Oct 1929)

Mr William Graham: ...also for any additional Departmental expenditure which will be involved—it must be small at the best—or any other outgoings attendant on the Measure; and there is a provision in respect of Stamp Duty. That is the limited scope of the Financial Memorandum and the Resolution. But on the wider financial question many changes have certainly taken place since the Royal Commission was...

Orders of the Day — Widows', Orphans' and Old Age Contributory Pensions Bill. (31 Oct 1929)

Mr William Carter: ...with regard to this particular class of person. We find that it practically rests with the medical profession whether or not an insured person in certain conditions gets what is called a redeemed stamp. What has called my attention to this question is the case of a man who was entitled practically to the benefit, with the exception of this redeemed stamp. The doctor refused to give him the...

Orders of the Day — Widows', Orphans' and Old Age Contributory Pensions [Money]. (1 Nov 1929)

Sir Kingsley Wood: ...with finance and particularly Financial Resolutions, should be jealously guarded and when we approach, as we do to-day, a Financial Resolution which deals with such a vast sum of money it is the duty of every Member to address himself to one of his most important obligations as a Member of Parliament. We are dealing this morning with a vast sum of money. We may have every sympathy with its...

Nationalisation of Transport. (6 Nov 1929)

Mr John Bowen: ...still require action to be taken to put them into a healthy position, but I am not encouraged to believe that we are going to have any initiative from the railway companies themselves. Sir Josiah Stamp, in his presidential address to railway students of the London School of Economics, at their annual meeting of 1927–8, gave an imposing list of well-known economies and other advantages to...

Orders of the Day — Annual Holiday Bill. (15 Nov 1929)

Mr Philip Lloyd-Greame: ...ground that a great many would. No one speaking on behalf of the Bill has been able to give any measure of cost. A figure has been given based on calculations, as I understand it, of Sir Josiah Stamp that the cost of a week's holiday in industry would be something in the neighbourhood of £40,000,000 a year—a pretty substantial sum. A figure, to which the hon. Gentleman said he did not...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: New Clause. — (Constitution of Coal Mines Reorganisation Commission.) (13 Feb 1930)

Mr William Graham: ...and that they should get them approved if possible on voluntary lines. There was a general concession under the Finance Act of a year or two ago to the effect that in amalgamations of that kind no Stamp Duty would be payable on the old capital but only on the new capital which was essential for the purpose of the amalgamations. That capital was not subject under the new conditions to any...

Incidence of Taxation on the Development of Industry. (19 Feb 1930)

...will not do that, one has to raise capital. If you raise the capital, you are immediately taxed upon the raising of the capital. Of the whole of your legal expenses involved, of the whole of your Stamp Duty paid, not a single solitary expenditure incurred in raising this capital is allowed to be charged against the profits of the business. You have therefore to pay taxation, not merely...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mines Bill.: Clause 13. — (Amendments of Part I of 16 and 17 Geo. 5. c. 28.) (2 Apr 1930)

Mr Cyril Atkinson: ...the Mining Industry Act at all. Schemes can go through under the Companies Acts, but the advantage of bringing a scheme within the Mining Industry Act is that Section 5 of that Act provides that no stamp duty shall be payable in respect of any amalgamation or absorption scheme, or on any debentures, or in respect of any share or loan capital of any company, issued in pursuance of any such...

Oral Answers to Questions — India.: Central Board of Revenue. (14 Apr 1930)

The members of the Board are Messrs. A. R. L. Tottenham, C.I.E., I.C.S., and A. H. Lloyd, C.I.E., I.C.S. The Board, whose powers and duties are defined in certain Indian statutes, is mainly concerned with the administration of the law relating to Customs, Income Tax, opium and salt, and—so far as the Central Government is concerned with these subjects—Excise and Stamp Duties.

Orders of the Day — Revenue, 1929–30. (14 Apr 1930) interested to know how the particular items of revenue have responded to expectations. Under Customs and Excise there were large deficiencies—on spirits more than £1,400,000 and on the Beer Duty over £1,800,000. Other heads of Customs and Excise revenue which failed to reach expectations were oil, nearly £700,000 short and sugar, nearly £1,600,000 short. On the other hand, tobacco...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means. (16 Apr 1930)

Hon. Oliver Stanley: ...Debt charges. First of all, with regard to the larger imposition of direct taxation in this Budget. It raises, of course, the whole controversy, which was summed up so well, I think, by Sir Josiah Stamp as the conflict between wealth as a social irritant, and wealth as an incentive to production. There are two perfectly distinct and both perfectly logical schools of thought. We on these...

Private Business.: CARDIFF CORPORATION BILL (By Order). (30 Apr 1930)

Mr Cyril Culverwell: ...type of men for municipal Government, and to obtain the whole-time services of those who are prepared to serve their city; and for that reason alone I think it would be a mistake to thrust new duties upon the Corporation. I do not believe that hon. Members opposite are in any way concerned with the encouragement of thrift. Their whole idea is to provide cheap money for the State or the...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Report (14TH April). (6 May 1930)

Mr Robert Bourne: ...the taxpayer, though it is rather easier to take it from the point of view of the family, this tax has the greatest evil of all taxes. It is a pure gamble. Ordinary taxation, Income Tax, Super-tax, Stamp Duties at least fall evenly on the individual. Every individual whose income exceeds £10,000 a year pays approximately the same rate of taxation, and has to find the same amount year by...
