Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Delivery of Increment Value Duty particulars.) (28 Jun 1922)

Mr Edmund Royds: ...a sale or with a matter of £500,000 or £50, the tax is all the same. We have just passed a Law of Property Bill to facilitate and to cheapen the transfer of land. I pointed out at the time that Stamp Duty was one of the great costs in the transfer of land, and here is another Government tax. It is a tax on every person, great or small, dealing with land, whether of the value of £50 or a...

Orders of the Day — Class Ii.: Home Office. (29 Jun 1922)

Mrs Margaret Wintringham: be done properly. The Home Secretary, on the 10th May, said that the money taken from the Police Fund is devoted, strictly speaking, to the protection of property, life and limb. I hold that the duty of protecting the lives of women in the various ways that I have mentioned are indeed police work. The Home Secretary must admit that his suggestion that the Archbishop of Canterbury, the...

Supply. (29 Jun 1922)

Mr John Baird: ...who are most successful as probation officers are not to be found easily. You cannot get them by advertising in the public Press, or in commonplace ways of that sort. In order to carry out the duties with which they are entrusted, they must be men and women who feel a special vocation for that particular kind of work, and it was made quite clear from the inquiry held by the Departmental...

Orders of the Day — SOLICITORS BILL [Lords.] (7 Jul 1922)

.... The profession should not be limited to those who come from the more wealthy homes. This career, like every other career, should be open as far as possible to talent. There is at present, in the Stamp Duty, a certain restriction, and I have no doubt the hon. Member who has just intervened will himself recognise that there are cases where that Stamp Duty is an absolute bar. Some who might...

Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Reduction of amount of composition for Stamp Duties in certain cases.) (12 Jul 1922)

New Clause. — (Reduction of amount of composition for Stamp Duties in certain cases.)

Oral Answers to Questions — Ireland.: Receipt Stamps. (13 Jul 1922)

Mr Frederick Kellaway: I am not aware that there is any general misapprehension on this point. The l½d. stamp, like all other postage stamps up to 1s., is inscribed "Postage" "Revenue" and is available in conjunction with a halfpenny stamp for payment of receipt duty. This arrangement is designed to meet the public convenience, which would not be promoted by the restriction which the hon. Member suggests.

Orders of the Day — Newspapers (Government Information). (27 Nov 1922)

Commander Hon. Joseph Kenworthy: that, after the present Government came into power, so I am informed, Downing Street was closed to Press representatives. The gentlemen who went in the ordinary course of their professional duties to ask for information at Downing Street, as they were legitimately entitled and were accustomed to do, were told that those days were over, and that no Pressman was to cross the sacred...

Irish Free State (Consequential Provisions) Bill.: Clause 5. — (Provisions as in relief from double taxation.) (28 Nov 1922)

Sir John Butcher: ..., but I should be glad to receive an assurance. The importance of this matter is that that relief is granted automatically, whether the Dominion in question acts reciprocally or not. There are some duties in the ease of which no relief is granted unless there is reciprocity between this country and the Dominions concerned, but I believe I am right in saying that relief from double Income...

Orders of the Day — Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) Bill.: Mining Industry (Conditions and Wages). (13 Dec 1922)

Mr John Potts: ...the attention of the House, because this is very important indeed—the profit was £13,000,000, or Is. per ton, which, at that time, taken on the average estimated capital of the industry by Dr. Stamp, at the Royal Commission's inquiry, and based on a statement of the capitalisation of the mining industry at that date, works out at 10 per cent. In 1914 the coalowners' profits were...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment Insurance Bill. (5 Mar 1923)

Mr Thomas Macnamara: ...of the whole State contributions. The Insurance Act, I must insist, is really only one part of a many-sided endeavour. I can only incidentally refer to the matter now. Of course, the first duty, confronted as we are with this calamity, is to do all we can to revive and to develop trade, and the next duty, in pursuance of the work-finding policy, to assist the municipalities all we know to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Housing.: Land (Transfer Fees). (14 Mar 1923)

Mr Daniel Somerville: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the transfer of a house value £400 costs about £15, including £5 for registration and £2 10s. Stamp Duty, whereas on the Stock Exchange you can transfer £400 worth of stock for £2.

Orders of the Day — Merchandise Marks Bill. (16 Mar 1923)

Mr Ernest Pretyman: ...that no single article of food offers greater scope for irregularities in selling methods than eggs. Our biggest egg export association in Denmark, the Danish Farmers' Egg Export Association, stamp every egg they export with a trade mark. I do not know whether that meets to some extent, the argument broadcasted round the House by interested people, that it would be quite impossible to...

Orders of the Day — CONSOLIDATED FUND (No. 1)BILL.: Ruhr Occupation. (28 Mar 1923)

Sir Edward Spears: ..., as the House has already been reminded by the right hon. Member for Paisley. There is also provision in Article 213, under which the League of Nations could perfectly well be charged with the duties I have outlined. Germany would therefore not be asked to accept any new obligations, and there is no reason why she should resist such a plan. At present, Germany is on the verge of ruin. The...

Orders of the Day — Customs and Excise.: Continuation of Duty on Tea. (16 Apr 1923) the proprietor of the business and from the consumption by professional people and by people with fixed incomes. When the whole is put together we have an estimate like that made by Sir Josiah Stamp, who certainly knows what he writes about. He, taking all these facts into account and addressing himself to the question of what is the real effect of a reduction in Income Tax as a...

Ral Answers to Questions.: Patent Medicine Stamp Duty. (17 Apr 1923)

Patent Medicine Stamp Duty.

Co-Partnership. (17 Apr 1923)

...which puts before these Commissioners a scheme which is approved and certified will be assessed to and charged with Income Tax at three-fourths of the ordinary rate, and that it will be charged for stamp duty on the issue of capital at one-half the ordinary rate of Stamp Duty. Clause 4 provides what I think is a most important use of the power that the Government and local authorities have...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means. (17 Apr 1923)

Sir Robert Horne: .... We are entitled to come to a conclusion on that topic before we can adequately scrutinise the estimates of the current year. If you take the first among the items, the revenue on Excess Profits Duty, I think a word of explanation would suffice to show how that occurred. It is true that only £2,000,000 was realised in the year, as against an estimate of something like £27,000,000, but...

Oral Answers to Questions — Finance Bill.: Titles (Taxation). (24 Apr 1923)

Mr Stanley Baldwin: As the hon. Member is no doubt aware, charges by way of fees and stamp duties on a graduated scale, ranging from £270 2s. in the case of a baronet to £730 2s. in the case of a duke, are now normally imposed on the creation of hereditary honours. The amounts of revenue which would be received from a tax on titled names would not be considerable and I am not prepared to introduce legislation.

Orders of the Day — Prevention of Unemployment Bill. (27 Apr 1923)

Mr John Newbold: ...the principle of this Bill extended considerably further. The Communist party stands for the assertion in the State of not merely the principle of the right to work, but also the principle of the duty to work. We hold it to be the duty of everyone of sound physique, everyone between 21 and, shall we say, 60, to contribute to the production of wealth within the State, the whole product...
