Orders of the Day — Ways and Means: Stamp Duty (Relief) (15 Jan 1992)

Mr Roger Moate: ...accuses the Government of intervening in the market. In fact, the Government are ceasing to intervene in the market. They should not have intervened in the first place. There should never have been stamp duties to distort the market. We have heard that the cost to the Treasury this year will be about £420 million. I should like to put that figure in context. I understand that the amount...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Home Ownership: Support (15 Jun 2020)

Christopher Pincher: My hon. Friend is right; Delyn is a beautiful constituency. He is also right to point out that stamp duty or land transaction tax in Wales is a devolved matter. The Welsh Government are not particularly successful at building houses, including social homes. I think they have built fewer than 140 in the last five years, so the message to the Welsh Government is: could do a little better. But I...

Council Tax Valuation Bands Bill [HL]: Second Reading (11 Sep 2015)

Lord Flight: .... Arguably, it might be a little too high. It might be an idea to, as it were, cap the maximum that is payable, but those are only minor points. However, my major quid pro quo or proviso concerns stamp duty. Irrespective of whether these changes are made, there is, in any case, as a matter of principle, a need to reduce stamp duty rates. The reform of the slab effect is fine but stamp duty...

John Redwood: ...but I believe that the Government are raising far too much and that a lot of it will not be well spent, which is what the public thinks. The first tax in the legislation that I am worried about is stamp duty.

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 80 (18 Jun 2009)

Greg Hands: The clause relates to stamp duty land tax for registered providers of social housing. More specifically, it relates to profit-making providers of social housing.

Written Answers — Treasury: Enterprise Areas (11 Apr 2003)

John Healey: Stamp duty is charged according to the type of property, rather than the type of buyer so the Inland Revenue does not keep a record of the numbers of businesses or individuals who claim the relief.

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means: (3) Savings (30 Mar 1971)

The second motive for saving is the desire for home ownership. The stamp duty on mortgages is an extra burden on people setting out to buy their own homes. I therefore propose, with effect from 1st August, to abolish the stamp duty on mortgages together with the related duty on deeds of covenant. The cost will be about £3½million in a full year and £2 million in 1971–72.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Section 86: Special Cases (17 Jul 1986)

Dr Oonagh McDonald: The new clauses are designed to ensure that where a transaction is exempt from stamp duty it is also exempt from stamp duty reserve tax. Perhaps the Minister will confirm that.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause. — (Estate Duty.) (28 Jun 1922)

Mr Edmund Royds: May I ask whether, when a settlement of land is executed now, a stamp duty of 1 per cent. on the value of the property is not payable, while at the time of the Act of 1894 a stamp duty of 10s. only had to be placed on the deed, so that a person now has already paid on the settlement itself an ad valorem duty of 1 per cent. at the time it was settled, and in addition he will have to pay this duty?

Viscount Bridgeman: This is a probing amendment. It seeks to ensure that if an instrument is avoided by a failure to apply for registration, the stamp duty paid on it can be used on any replacement instrument executed to give effect to the original transaction. That may not be strictly necessary for instruments which replace outright transfers under Clause 4(1)(a) and (b) because, under Clause 7(2)(a), the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Depository Receipts (Taxation) (17 Apr 1986)

Mr Ian Stewart: The measure is intended to compensate for the fact that when shares are bought and sold through the market in the usual way stamp duty is payable on each occasion, but no duty is payable on purchases and sales of depository receipts after shares have been converted into them. The purpose of the charge is therefore to safeguard the £600 million revenue from stamp duty on shares generally.
