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...

Orders of the Day — Budget Proposals: General (17 Apr 1956)

Mr Hugh Gaitskell: ...it, not in last year's Finance Bill, because we were not allowed to do so then, but in the Finance Bill of 1954. As to owner-occupiers, it may certainly be an advantage to have a lower rate of Stamp Duty but, frankly, it goes a very little way indeed towards relieving these admirable people of the very heavy burdens which the Government have already imposed upon them. As to public...

Pet Theft — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (2 Jul 2018)

Sue Hayman: ...is 60 families whose beloved pets are taken. Disgracefully, fewer than 5% of cases end in convictions. We do not want that situation to be allowed to continue. As Members of the House, it is our duty to try to do something about it. Battersea Dogs & Cats Home told me that there is no single database of pet-related theft, so any information comes from freedom of information requests to...

Local Government Finance (England) (10 Feb 2021)

Steve Double: ...do so. Can we also look at what we can do about the delay in local searches? This is clogging up the housing market at a time when hundreds of people are seeking to complete before the end of the stamp duty holiday. Finally, it would be remiss of me not to mention the need for the fair funding review to be completed. It has been well established that the cost of delivering services in...

Environment, Transport and Local and Devolved Government Affairs (25 Nov 2004)

Tim Yeo: ...Government will make it easier for homes to be powered by clean, green, renewable energy and to save on energy consumption. Fiscal instruments can promote those aims, whether in the form of lower stamp duty for energy-efficient homes—an option that we are now examining—or through council tax concessions for tenants and owners who have invested to make their homes more energy efficient....

Housing and Land (6 Nov 1973)

Mr Geoffrey Rippon: ...higher rateable values. The right hon. Gentleman mentioned another cause of anxiety, winkling and harassment. In a circular issued earlier this year we urged local authorities to take action to stamp out harassment. They have the powers. The maximum penalties have been greatly increased under Section 30 of the Criminal Justice Act 1972. Now an offender is liable, on conviction on...

Scottish Parliament: Budget Process 2004-05: Stage 2 (17 Dec 2003)

Brian Monteith: ...£37 billion. We have had warnings not only that there might have to be public service cuts in about 2006 or beyond, but that some taxes might have to go up. There is speculation about a rise in stamp duty, about VAT going up to 20 per cent and about income tax hikes. I suggest that the tax-and-spend model for the economy has crashed and that we must reboot our system. We need new,...

Orders of the Day — Sex Discrimination Bill: Ministers of Religion etc. (18 Jun 1975)

Mr Ivor Clemitson: ...that is, the ministry—by confining exemption to that which is more capable of definition—that is to say, doctrines—by removing the impossibly vague susceptibility provision, and by imposing a duty to report reasons for exclusion to the commission, the clause would he made much more definite than it is. The genuine would be protected and reasons for justified discrimination would be...

Economic Situation (26 Jul 1961)

Mr Harold Wilson: ...of the Government's regressive bias in taxation matters. We have had three Budgets this year, so far. The first raised Health Service charges and levied £45 million on every family in the land by stamp contributions. The second gave Surtax concessions, and the third is once more taxing ordinary families' consumption. This is a miserable record of fiscal injustice. There is 4d. on...

Seychelles (Administration) (1 Aug 1956)

Mr Alan Lennox-Boyd: ...There is no court fee at all in criminal cases and in civil cases they are very moderate fees. If people are suffering from extreme poverty, no fees at all are charged, except a minor registration stamp duty. Having taken up this matter personally with the Governor, I am satisfied that there is no justification for the charge that there would have been more appeals had it been cheaper to...

Budget Statement — Motion to Take Note (21 Mar 2013)

Baroness Kramer: ...band. Under Labour, poorer people would today be paying more income tax than under the coalition. I find that the most extraordinary notion of "fairness". If one adds to that the measures on fuel duty, childcare and even beer, one sees that ordinary working families now have a little more breathing space. Childcare is an area where I once worked on Liberal Democrat policy. We made a very...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 25. — (Sale of Securities Cum-Dividend.) (25 May 1960)

Mr Jack Diamond: ...per cent. which is declared half yearly. Let us say that on £200 the tax involved is 15s. That is the amount of the profit in the bargain to this operator, less the cost which he has to incur for Stamp Duty, brokerage, and so on. It will immediately be seen that there is only 5s. or 6s. left to play with on £100. A person always sells before he buys because he sells on the previous date...

Public Bill Committee: High Speed Rail(London - West Midlands) Bill: New Clause 31 - Compensation: application (8 Mar 2016)

Andy McDonald: ...-occupiers living closest to the line may be able to sell their home to the Government at its full, unblighted market value, plus 10%—up to £47,000—and reasonable moving expenses, including stamp duty. Then there is the voluntary purchase scheme, which enables owner-occupiers in rural areas who live outside the safeguarding area and up to 120 metres from the line to sell their home to...

Economic Leadership for Cities — Motion to Take Note (11 Dec 2014)

Lord McKenzie of Luton: ...and bureaucracy, nor allow the Treasury to strangle such initiatives. This agenda brings with it the thirst for more taxes to be devolved to English cities. City Centred campaigns for council tax, stamp duty land tax, business rates, annual tax on enveloped buildings and capital gains property disposal tax to be devolved. It properly asserts that this would be Exchequer-neutral because...

Bills Presented: Energy Efficiency (30 Jun 2010)

Caroline Lucas: ...permits are given away, not auctioned, and that means that the fossil fuel companies, too, are receiving windfall profits. I also hope that the Government will give proper consideration to both a stamp duty rebate and some form of equivalent grant for homes that do not reach the stamp duty threshold, so that we take maximum advantage of the house-moving process for incentivising costly and...
