Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Relief in respect of certain insurance policies in Scotland.) (2 Jul 1923)

Major Murdoch Wood: ...will take it seriously. It is meant to deal with a real grievance. The case I brought to the notice of hon. Members was where, in an insurance policy issued by an insurance company in Scotland, the stamp duty payable was £31 5s., whereas the stamp duty on a similar policy issued by a company in England was only 6d. The Solicitor-General said that that was due to the interpretation of the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill. (4 Jul 1923)

Sir Albert Bennett: ...that if the right hon. Gentleman considers it worth while to appoint a Committee to investi- gate the subject of double taxation he might include in the terms of reference the question of the Stamp Duty on foreign loans. It is a subject I have brought forward before. Judging from my own feelings, if there is one prayer the whole House would endorse it would be to be spared on the Third...

Orders of the Day — East India Loans Bill. (6 Jul 1923)

Mr Arthur Samuel: ...the Budget. What is it for? Is it proposed to borrow this £15,000,000 instead of raising money by taxation, or is it for purposes which are yet undisclosed? Again, Clause 7 provides that no Stamp Duties whatsoever shall be charged on the transfer of any of the capital stocks issued by the Government of India. I do not know why the Government of India, when it raises money here, should be...

Civil Services and Revenue Departments Estimates and Supplementary Estimate, 1923–24.: Post Office. (24 Jul 1923)

Mr Valentine McEntee: ...of a very large section of his employés, but of a very small section. In fact, I think the whole body of them would not number more than about 100 men. It is that section known as the Post Office stamp section, a section that originally was established under the Inland Revenue and was transferred to the Post Office very much later. The Service was reorganised in 1906, and from that time...

Orders of the Day — Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) Bill. (31 Jul 1923)

Mr William Pringle: ...the Post Office. Was the intelligence officer there in his time? Did he ever do anything like this in the Financial Secretary's time; or, if he did try to do it, did the Financial Secretary sternly stamp his foot on any such attempt at publicity? I have no doubt, if the Financial Secretary speaks he will be able to enlighten us on that matter, but he is not the only right hon. Gentleman...

Mr Oswald Mosley: ...of Britain by suggesting something which was directly contrary to the truth in regard to a statement of the hon. Gentleman, by suggesting that he had said at the Albert Hall that he intended to stamp on Monsieur Poincaré. That was a grotesque travesty, and the context of the hon. Gentleman's speech, which I have here, proves quite conclusively that, so far from saying anything of the...

Orders of the Day — Diseases of Animals [Money]. (18 Feb 1924)

Mr Frederick Martin: accept commercial prices for his cattle for slaughter, and ultimately the county council undertook to pay £4,000 in compensation, less salvage. That action was taken in order to get the disease stamped out of the county. What I am going to ask the Minister is this: I think it only fair, under all the circumstances, that the cost of slaughter should be charged to the State. The cost of...

Orders of the Day — Poplar Order. (26 Feb 1924)

Mr Robert Spence: ...that the onus of responsibility for maintenance of the unemployed should be transferred to the Poor Law, did so because they were of opinion that it was more profitable for them in pursuit of their duties for the moment, with a saving to the Exchequer, to cast the onus of responsibility on the local authority. The local employers of labour were groaning beneath a burden of taxation, and...

Orders of the Day — Diseases of Animals Bill. (27 Feb 1924)

Mr Walter Smith: no shape or form, and the hours they have been working are astounding. They do their best to get on the spot as quickly as possible, and enlist the services of local agencies to help them to stamp out the diease as quickly as possible. With regard to the question of proper disinfection, there again every possible step is taken to see that it is carried out as successfully as possible. I...

Oral Answers to Questions — Receipt Stamps. (11 Mar 1924)

Mr Philip Snowden: The attention of the Commissioners of Inland Revenue is constantly being called to cases where receipts which ought to have been stamped have been given without a stamp, and suitable action is taken by them in each case. The document commonly given in the larger shops when goods are sold and paid for over the counter is a form of voucher which does not constitute a receipt for the purposes of...

Sir Sidney Herbert: ...can afford to live. Owing again to the exchanges, the foreigner can buy gear at something like 35 per cent. or under what we have to pay in this country. Every other country in the world levies a duty upon British fish, whether fresh or dried fish, imported into that country. Those countries which had no duty before the War have imposed it now, and those countries which had a duty have...

Orders of the Day — Finance Act, 1915 (New Import Duties). (13 May 1924)

Lieut-Colonel Charles Howard-Bury: ...sent their petitions in envelopes on which were the employers' names. Does he realise that in the works there is often a reading or writing room, where there are envelopes with the employer's stamp on them, and that they take those envelopes and make use of them—they write their petitions there and send them to the Chancellor of the Exchequer? The Chancellor has also complained that the...

Orders of the Day — Export Trade. (21 May 1924)

Mr Fredric Wise: ...can lend money at the present to foreign countries, ourselves and the United States of America. Where the difficulty comes in with regard to ourselves, is that during the War we put a 2 per cent. stamp duty on all foreign investments floatations coming into this country, which meant a revenue to this country of, roughly, about £1,250,000. In the United States there is no stamp duty at...

Mr Douglas Pielou: ...failing, and it was necessary either to await a revival of trade, to reconstitute the voluntary scheme on a different basis, or to adopt compulsion. The Committee agreed that it is the honourable duty of the country to see that every disabled man, and not only a proportion of them, has a chance of employment. The Committee also found that the sentiment in favour of preferential treatment...
