Children Act 1989 (Amendment) (Female Genital Mutilation) Bill [Lords] (11 Mar 2019)

Maggie Throup: ...awareness of the abhorrent practice of FGM increases and the momentum swings firmly behind positive action which will ensure that women and girls are fully protected, we as legislators have a duty to strengthen existing laws to ensure that the courts have all the necessary powers not only to prosecute those whose facilitate FGM, but to safeguard victims and those at risk. This is a simple...

Employment Bill (27 Jun 2002)

Lord Sainsbury of Turville: ...or otherwise" in legislation. I give two other uses of those words in other legislation. The first is Section 116 of the Finance Act 1991. That relates to regulations which provide that a charge to stamp duty does not arise or is reduced in certain circumstances. Section 116 provides that, "regulations may make any provision in such way as the Treasury thinks fit (whether by amending...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (21 Jun 2017)

Anne-Marie Trevelyan: ...Chamber on the first day of our new Parliament. I would like first to put on record my thanks and admiration to our exceptional police force in the north-east and across the country. They were on duty and on high alert, keeping us all safe as we fought our elections. Alongside all our emergency services and our armed forces, they provided such extraordinary resilience throughout the truly...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (16 Oct 2019)

Lord Pendry: ...as a result of both the civil war in China and the Japanese occupation, felt the need to flee to Hong Kong for sanctuary. The Hong Kong Government could have refused entry. They could have placed a duty on the citizens of the outside world, or they could have sent the refugees to their homelands, but they did not. They embarked on a resettlement programme of gigantic proportions, which...

Select Committees — Accommodation and Works (16 Jul 2001)

Patrick Cormack: ...be said of the hon. Member for Crewe and Nantwich. She is a doughty champion of Parliament, and although she is proud to be Labour just as I am proud to be Conservative, she puts her parliamentary duties above all others. She has served not only her party but the whole of Parliament by the way in which she has discharged those duties. To have a Select Committee system—or rather, a...

Orders of the Day — Drug Trafficking Offences Bill (21 Jan 1986)

Stuart Bell: ...to deal with the problem. My remarks relate to that Government action. Recently on Teesside the local customs and excise took the decision to redeploy a rummage crew working on Teesside. The duties of that crew were to search vessels and to seek out drugs and other illicit cargo. It was decided that those men should be redeployed to other duties. The appropriate unions, the Minister of...

Capital Gains Tax (Rates) (23 Jun 2010)

Alistair Darling: ...said, borrowing is too high and we need to get it down. As I said to the hon. Member for Bexleyheath and Crayford (Mr Evennett), our receipts from income tax and corporation tax fell, as did our stamp duty receipts when the housing market went down, but that would have happened-indeed, it did happen-to every other major economy. We are not talking about something that was confined to the...

High Court of Justice (King's Bench Division). (2 Feb 1939)

Mr Ernest Evans: ...out that this is not a Motion which will involve any expense to the country. I think it will be admitted that the cost of all the judges of the High Court is always covered by the fees and stamp and other duties, so that the administration of justice does not involve the country in any expense. But, even if it did, I venture to point out that the administration of justice is one of the...

Children and Young Persons (Protection Against Tobacco) Bill (18 Jan 1991)

Sir Peter Lloyd: ...requirement in new subsection (1H) for local authorities to produce an annual report of their activities under the previous subsection. I am afraid that my heart sank at the phrase It shall be the duty of every local authority to produce an annual report". Is this to be another unwanted report that is read by only the very few with a special interest in its contents? If it is to be no more...

Consumers, Estate Agents and Redress Bill [HL] (4 Dec 2006)

Baroness Hanham: ...often than not handling properties worth hundreds of thousands, and in London many millions, of pounds. They charge tens of thousands of pounds in fees and handle similar sums for the Chancellor's stamp duty. They give advice to buyers and purchasers alike. Most are capable, some are not. Most will, by sheer weight of competition, have to act with propriety and competence. Some will not....

Planning Bill (6 Nov 2008)

Baroness Andrews: ...perfectly clear whether one is talking about recommendation, ratification or reconsideration, one cannot invent a spurious process which simply requires the Minister, in all integrity, to rubber-stamp a decision. The Minister would have to revisit the evidence. A question was raised about why the Secretary of State was able to take a decision in six days on Stansted. I think that rather...

Vietnamese Boat People (19 Dec 1989)

Mr David Young: ...form does the vetting take? It has been condemned by Amnesty International, and although the United Nations Organisation may have been asked for advice, it was not consulted, and has not given its stamp of approval to the methods that are being used. During the first screening, there is no access to advice or legal representation of any kind. Is it not also true that the immigration...

Housing and Access to Legal Aid — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (16 May 2018)

Lucy Frazer: ...also available for representation at hearings. People can access representations from individuals already engaged in their case and giving them legal help. In addition, the housing possession court duty scheme is a vital service that offers on-the-day advice and advocacy at court to anyone facing possession proceedings. Individuals in danger of eviction or having their home repossessed can...

Orders of the Day — Supply. — [14TH Allotted Day.]: DR. Addison's Statement. (30 Jun 1919)

Lieut-Colonel Nathan Raw: .... Gentleman will agree that tuberculosis is a preventable disease which ought not to be here, and I feel certain that with the advent of the Ministry of Health a much greater effort will be made to stamp out a disease which is causing so much poverty and misery. I am not finding any fault with the present Government for the treatment of tuberculosis, but I do feel with the Minister that a...

Opposition Day: Unemployment (West Midlands) (22 Feb 1983)

Mr Peter Snape: ...Brownhills (Mr. Shepherd) and the Minister that it was the Labour party that opposed the creation of metropolitan county councils in the early 1970s. Most of those who now complain about the budget dutifully trooped through the Lobby to support the creation of that authority. They will no doubt dutifully troop through the Lobby tonight to support their Government, despite the disasters...

Orders of the Day — Clause 10. — (Alterations in Reliefs.) (20 May 1965)

Mr Geoffrey Hirst: ...to change the system, proceed, as I am advised, to rob the individual of part of his rights. A single person under the subsection gets an increase in personal allowance of £20 set off against the stamp allowance for tax purposes whereas the amount that could formerly be deducted for tax purposes was £22. I apologise if I am not correct in thinking that this is a rather silly creaming...

Universal Credit and Working Tax Credits (15 Sep 2021)

Bridget Phillipson: ...their jobs. And today we are debating cutting universal credit. Again and again, this Government look first to working people, rather than looking across the piece at our tax system. There was a stamp duty holiday for buy-to-let landlords and second home owners, but they have taken £1,000 a year out of the incomes of working people who are doing all that is asked of them. The most recent...

Fuel Laundering (22 May 2018)

Ian Paisley Jnr: If we start to go down that line, the costs are in many ways incalculable. We need to bear that in mind. The Organised Crime Task Force recounts a case study of an organised crime gang that evaded duty of more than £3 million. It had laundering plants in 13 locations, at one of which the police seized approaching £300,000 in cash. They also seized 72,000 litres of illicit fuel that was...

Postal Services Bill: Committee (4th Day) (6 Apr 2011)

Lord Boswell of Aynho: ...intensely interesting morning. Not only was it intrinsically interesting, but it showed the wider importance of archives, for example by showing the relationships involved in the formulation of new stamp designs and the exchanges before they were approved and came into circulation. I will add at this point there are always two tests. One is the importance of business archives generally. In...
