Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (25 Jun 2001)

Lord Hodgson of Astley Abbotts: ...structure: the arrangements of buying and selling shares and other securities. The position of the London Stock Exchange is under threat in several ways. First, I have to raise again the issue of stamp duty. The key issue in maintaining market supremacy is that of price formation: the ability to quote the keenest possible price. There is increasing evidence that the existence of stamp duty...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (25 Nov 1947)

Mr Woodrow Wyatt: ...would, in fact, have done the things which he suggested it would do. I think, however, that the hon. Member was a little too gloomy when he said that it is wrong to make any start with this Betting Duty at all. I do not think it is quite true to say that because the duty works unequally, we must not apply it. I am sure he will agree that betting is a complete luxury and that no one can...

Orders of the Day — Land Commission Bill (12 May 1966)

Mr Frederick Willey: ...the disposal of a freehold, or the grant or assignment of a lease, the transactions which must be notified to the Commission are, in fact, transactions for which documents must be submitted to the Stamp Duty Office and Clause 82 and Schedules 10 and 11 will make it possible for the submission of the particulars to the Stamp Duty Office to suffice as notification to the Land Commission, and...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 89 (1 Feb 2021)

Lord Rosser: We strongly welcome the duty placed on local authorities in the Bill to support victims of domestic abuse and their children through providing support in accommodation-based services. This group of 12 amendments aims to strengthen and add necessary detail to this duty. The amendments would clarify what factors authorities must consider when assessing need and preparing a strategy, define...

Orders of the Day — Clause 1. — (Extension of Borrowing Powers.) (22 Feb 1967)

Mr Gwynfor Evans: ...commonly seen of all publicly-owned properties. Many people see them every day of their lives. In Wales these should carry signs in the Welsh language, as well as the English language of course. Stamps used in Wales should carry the Welsh language, and the Postmaster-General should take care to refrain from printing on stamps in Wales a phrase which is totally inaccurate, such as Wales...

Orders of the Day — Economy (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill.: Clause 11. — (Amendment as to stamping of ballot papers with official mark.) (19 Apr 1926)

Sir Henry Slesser: I beg to move, in page 9, line 9, to leave out the words "stamped or." Clause 11 seeks to alter the law in regard to official marks on ballot papers, and I understand the Home Secretary is even more rigid in regard to Clause 11 than he was on Clause 10. Yet I have an objection, which I think many hon. Members share, to allowing another place to direct the ultimate form of a Bill dealing with...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (7 Jun 2005)

Dawn Primarolo: ...a tax advantage. A further change ensures that the rules cannot be avoided by putting financial arrangements in place up to six months before a control relationship exists. To counter a number of stamp duty land tax avoidance schemes, clause 49 and schedule 10 will close known loopholes: for instance, limiting artificial group relationships which have been set up purely to avoid ...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill.: New Clause — (Reduced Customs duties on tea.) (29 Jun 1939)

Mr William Gallacher: .... I want to know where are the mighty battalions who were fighting so valiantly for a reduction of the tax on films? Where are the heavy weights who battered the Chancellor for the removal of the Stamp Duty? Where are they now, when we are discussing a tax on the food of the people? Where are all those mighty orators who in 12 horse-power speeches tried to get a reduction of the motor car...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Ways and Means — Financial Statement (21 Mar 2012)

George Osborne: ...January, so that the additional corporation tax cuts do not benefit the banks, and so that our levy will in addition raise the £2.5 billion a year that we said it would. That brings me to the main duties. Let me start with alcohol duty. The Government will shortly be publishing their alcohol strategy to address the growing problem of alcohol abuse, and the many billions of pounds it costs...

Prevention of Terrorism Bill (Programme) (No. 2) (28 Feb 2005)

Dominic Grieve: This is a very sad occasion. The House must consider carefully whether it wishes to take a grip of its own procedures or simply allow the Executive to roll us over and treat us as their rubber stamp. The Minister will know that I have always been willing when business has gone into Committee, to try to meet agreed timetables when they are reasonable. I have no objection to a sensible...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (16 Mar 2016)

Andrea Jenkyns: .... To boost enterprise, we have announced that we are also cutting the basic rate of capital gains tax to 10% and the higher rate to 20%, which will improve investment in business. We are reforming stamp duty on commercial properties, resulting in a tax break for small firms. This will remove the distortions in the property market and make it easier for small firms that want to move to...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation: Amendment of the Law (29 Nov 1994)

Dr John Marek: ...taxes, which would be paid immediately the tax inspector called on the person who had not paid his or her taxes. Why did the Chancellor not mention that? The Chancellor could have introduced a stamp duty on share transactions after 1996. That would have realised £1 billion. For dogmatic political reasons, however, the plan is still to get rid of stamp duty on share transactions, which...

Orders of the Day — Metropolitan Police Bill.: Clause 4. — (Appointment of constables for fixed period of service in Metro politan Police Force.) (26 Jun 1933)

Brigadier-General John Nation: ...service men; and, secondly, what inducement is there for the right type of young man to come into a career which lasts only for 10 years? Of course there is no doubt that 500 young men of the right stamp, in the flower of youth and full of energy and vigour, coming into a force must be of benefit to that force. If, however, we do not get the right type of man, the force must naturally...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Relief for fixed preference dividends in connection with double taxation.) (16 Jun 1947)

Mr Nigel Birch: ...should not exchange them for ordinary shares. Two arguments present themselves. First of all—and this Budget makes the position much worse—the expense of changing a small holding is heavy. The Stamp Duty is doubled and that means an increase from one per cent. to two per cent., to start with. The commissions on small holdings are large. Therefore, it is expensive to change small...

Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (19 Mar 2014)

David Mowat: ...Wrexham. Income inequality in our society is at its lowest level for 28 years. Why is that? Because this Government increased capital gains tax by around 40% when they came in and have increased stamp duty by more than that. Both measures are bringing in significant amounts of revenue. The Opposition are caught up in the debate on the 45% and 40% income tax rates. That is not how to...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (17 Apr 1967)

Mr Elystan Morgan: ...sympathies lie. I am sure that we welcome the allowances made to widows and single women with dependants, and the concession to house purchasers. It is proper, however, to make a small point about Stamp Duty on mortgages. I can find no justification for not completely abolishing Stamp Duty on mortgages up to £5,500. If a person can afford to buy a house for £5,000 without having to...

Orders of the Day — War Damage (Amendment) Bill.: SECOND SCHEDULE (Amendments as to ultimate incidence of Contributions under Part I of the Principal Act). (18 Jun 1942)

Sir Kingsley Wood: ...under this Bill to property and goods, as defined in the Measure. What I will make inquiry about is the suggestion, made in the letter which he read to the House, that if these deeds were lost Stamp Duties in respect of them—in the event of further evidence being required as to title—should not again be imposed. As I understand it, if you take a matter of this kind to the court and are...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: New Clause 10 — Green deal installation apprenticeships (14 Sep 2011)

Caroline Lucas: ...of adoption, or the depth of the improvements that are needed for the delivery of huge emissions savings from our housing stock. In Committee we discussed possible drivers, including council tax or stamp duty rebates linked to the green deal, and reduced VAT rates for products bought under it. I support all those options, but I think that we should chiefly explore the idea of using the...

The Environment (10 Feb 2004)

Elliot Morley: ...of the 2002 Budget that it brought about a series of positive sustainability measures. They include such matters as excluding combined heat and power from the climate change levy, and abolishing stamp duty on the most deprived neighbourhoods. We are dealing with an issue of environmental quality of life. That is what my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister was talking about when he...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 74 (5 Jun 2007)

Stephen Timms: ...a share of the payments made by the property owners. Sukuk can be backed by any income-producing asset, but clause 74 concerns only sukuk backed by a sharia-compliant mortgage book. In the case of stamp duty land tax, we recognise that taking and receiving interest is prohibited by sharia law. That has led to the growth of alternative financing mechanisms. Our current taxation system—or...
