Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: Clause 28. — (Amended rates of Estate Duty.) (23 Jun 1930)

children, they spend before the tax-gatherer gets the money. These high Estate Duties also act detrimentally to the extension of businesses and they also prevent the setting up of new businesses.

Sir George Courthope: ..., though not without considerable cost. The Treasury has taken its toll. It is true that it has been in another form, and probably a smaller toll, but the Treasury has taken a considerable toll in Stamp Duty.

Mr Robert Bourne: ...the word "retrospective" in connection with this Clause, I think it may be termed "retroactive."

Mr Dennis Herbert: ...are endeavouring to get more than they ought to get. The Attorney-General will appreciate the fact that when these companies were formed and these transactions were carried out, a very heavy Stamp Duty was paid.

Unemployment. (12 Feb 1931)

...our minds. Take what has happened. So little is the City in touch with industry, that you may have 1,250,000 unemployed, and the City of London flourish. If anyone doubts that, let him look at the Stamp Duties during the last 10 years, a great deal of which have come from City transactions. I would also invite the House to read the speech of the President of the Manchester Chamber of...
