Scottish Parliament: Procurement Reform (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (20 Feb 2014)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...has already been issued and launched by the STUC and the First Minister. I put on record my thanks to the trade unions, with whom we continue to work to put into practice our joint determination to stamp out the abhorrent practice of blacklisting. I turn to community benefit clauses. Mary Fee, Sarah Boyack, Jackie Baillie and others made points about the threshold. I will respond with a...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Departments Bill: Second Stage (8 Dec 2015)

Chris Lyttle: ...synergies can be delivered. However, the Alliance Party would go further and reduce the number of MLAs to 90 in time for the next election. We would also like to see greater use of a statutory duty on Departments to cooperate. Institutional reform alone, however, will not deliver the effective power-sharing government that I believe the vast majority of people in Northern Ireland want to...

Written Ministerial Statements — Transport: HS2 (Phase 1 Property) (16 Jan 2015)

Patrick McLoughlin: ...home to the Government, if they wish to do so at its full unblighted market value (as it would be if there were no plans for HS2), plus 10% (up to £49,000) and reasonable moving expenses, including stamp duty. Voluntary purchase— for people in rural areas outside the safeguarding area and up to 120 metres away from the line (this is the area defined as the rural support zone)....

Clause 15: Special Treatment for Persons Involved in Farming etc. (8 Jul 1992)

Mr Michael Stern: ...to have no great urgency, and could have been delayed until the next Finance Bill—for example, clauses 110 to 112 and virtually the whole of part IV of the 1991 Act, relating to non-contentious stamp duty changes. The same is true of section 76 of the same Act, relating to the treatment of annuities. One assumes that, following today's debate, the current Bill will proceed to be given...

Local Government: Finance (No. 2) Bill (10 Apr 1984)

Mr Archy Kirkwood: .... One or two matters of detail have had an impact on me as a constituency Member as well as the Liberal spokesman on taxation. One is the impact of the increase in petrol prices and vehicle excise duty on rural areas. The Government must accept that although general indexation of some duties is right, the burden of some increases is unfair and discriminatory on those in rural areas. I...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: SDLT: higher rates for additional dwellings etc (7 Jul 2016)

David Gauke: Let me say a word about clause 117, which introduces higher rates of stamp duty land tax on purchasers of additional residential properties. Owning a home is an aspiration for millions of people in our country. The Government are committed to helping people achieve that aspiration by supporting those who want to work hard, save and buy their own home. Home ownership is also a key part of the...

Fly Tipping (21 May 2003)

Michael Meacher: ...to take further action on a major scale to tackle fly tipping. Litter and fly tipping are major problems. They have undoubtedly got worse in recent years. Such acts are unacceptable and must be stamped out. The principle that the polluter pays is one in which we all believe. That must be done and be seen to be done. Many changes are being made to how we deal with waste. We need to recycle...

A.R.P. Centre, Downham Market (4 Feb 1944)

Mr Somerset De Chair: ...endeavour to convince the House that the right hon. Gentleman was completely misinformed. One might ask, in the first place, whether or not this town of Downham Market is notably lax in its public duty and requires this prodding from above. I am happy to say, however, that Downham Market is noted for its public spirit throughout Norfolk, and, although it comprises scarcely 2,000 voters, it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Ways and Means — Financial Statement (23 Mar 2011)

George Osborne: ...that, at a cost to the Exchequer of £370 million, I will extend the rate holiday for small businesses for another year to October 2012. We will also take action to help the construction industry. Stamp duty will now be levied on the mean value of the houses being purchased within a portfolio, not the bulk cost, and real estate investment trusts will be simplified to encourage home...

National Insurance Contributions Bill (4 Nov 2013)

Catherine McKinnell: ...contributions. The GAAR, which came into force on Royal Assent of the Finance Act 2013, incorporates income tax, corporation tax, capital gains tax, inheritance tax, petroleum revenue tax, stamp duty, land tax and the new annual tax on enveloped dwellings. A number of Opposition Members raised the concern that the GAAR is intended to prevent only “highly contrived tax avoidance” that...

Tax Avoidance — [Dr William McCrea in the Chair] (16 Jun 2010)

John Pugh: ...in charity law, with repo arrangements, or with controlled foreign companies-we had an awful lot of debate about controlled foreign companies in the last year of the previous Parliament, as well as stamp duty and other matters. The Inland Revenue has been involved in constructing complex defences against complex devices and schemes. Quite frankly, even though we pretend to understand them...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill [Lords] and Sea Fishing Grants (Charges) Bill (Allocation of Time): Supplemental Orders (22 May 2000)

Gwyneth Dunwoody: ...almost since the time of the Anglo-Saxons. When I see an Order Paper with a timetable motion—for two Bills, not one—I am disappointed in terms of my hopes for the incoming Government. It is my duty to say these things, which will not make me popular on this side of the House. Nor will I be appreciated by many new Members of Parliament, who will only too readily write off the views of...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (5 Apr 1971)

Mr Edward Du Cann: ...but the picture must be complete and there is a great deal of detail to be filled in. I give two instances—one small, the other rather larger. The small instance is this. It was good to see the stamp duty on mortgages abolished yet there must be other right hon. and hon. Members who have the same recollection of Finance Bill Committees and debates as I have. For 15 years I have put my...

Finance Bill (18 Jul 2008)

Lord Ryder of Wensum: ...beyond doubt the scale and gravity of the Government's problem with public expenditure. The NIESR predicted that the economic slowdown would slice tax revenues by at least £8 billion and stamp duty by £3 billion. The IFS has forecast a budget deficit for next year of well over £40 billion. Indeed, I think that this is a conservative estimate. Michael Saunders, the chief economist of...

Northern Ireland (Security) (12 Jan 1976)

Mr Harold Wilson: ...Ireland met Mr. Cooney, the Minister for Justice for the Republic, on 8th January this year. There is no doubt that the Government of the Republic are as determined as are this Government to stamp out cross-border banditry and murder. There is now close and valuable co-operation between the RUC and the Irish police. It is in this area of joint co-operation that the greatest hope lies of...

Orders of the Day — Army and Air Force (Women's Service) (10 Nov 1948)

Mr Michael Maitland Stewart: ...that should a similar misfortune befall a woman member of the Forces, the same assistance in reducing formalities should be available to the husband of that woman member of the Forces. The Stamp Act, 1891, gives help to the widow of someone who has served in the Forces and who is seeking letters of administration. Once again it is appropriate that the same facility should be available to...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means.: Amendment as to Relief in Respect Oflife Insurance Premiums. (1 May 1935)

Mr John Hills: ...sums are raised by the taxes on beer and tobacco, £60,000,000 in one case, and about £70,000,000 in the other. A percentage increase in consumption might produce a very large sum of money. The stamp duties depend entirely upon business activity. In 1928, they produced £30,000,000. The Chancellor only estimates £25,000,000 this year, so there is a margin. I believe he has underestimated...

Scottish Parliament: Taking Scotland Forward: Economy (31 May 2016)

Jamie Greene: ...help ease those pains, it is what happens outside these walls that really matters to people. We cannot fix every problem in our culture or society, but we can be bold with our decisions. We have a duty across the Parliament to work co-operatively to stamp out bigotry, abuse and unfairness in our society. That is the reason why many of us decided to become politicians. It is wrong when...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (5 Dec 1995)

Alan Beith: ...still do not have the energy package right, and tonight will face opposition to a number of their proposals for that reason. The Government attacked us bitterly when we talked about raising petrol duty by 5p a gallon. We were castigated by Conservative central office for making such an outrageous proposal. The Government are increasing the price of petrol by 16p a gallon, with no...

NHS and Social Care: Winter Service Delivery - Motion to Take Note (25 Jan 2018)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: ...problems, but we see these problems all year round. I bore the House to death when I go on about alcohol and A&E and the costs involved. When the Minister took his job, he said that he was going to stamp down on drunkenness in A&Es. I would like to see some evidence of that because the papers were full of such issues over the Christmas period. Substantial numbers of people go to hospitals...
