Orders of the Day — Transport Bill (9 Feb 1982)

Mr Teddy Taylor: ...of my hon. and learned Friend the Under-Secretary. I wish to say a brief word about the general issues. I was surprised to see in clause 6 that special endeavours are being made to exempt from stamp duty transactions that arise out of the privatisation of the National Bus Company and parts of it. I support wholeheartedly moves towards privatisation, but it would be wrong in principle if...

Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs and Defence (19 Nov 1993)

Mr David Steel: ...while other members of the Cabinet go to the CBI and try to endorse the Prime Minister's line of being at the heart of Europe. The Prime Minister and the Foreign Secretary have a primary duty to stamp their authority on the rest of the Cabinet and tell them that we are not going to have any more of it, and that our commitment to making the European Union work in the way that was...

Orders of the Day — Amendment of Law. (13 Apr 1927)

Mr Richard Wallhead: I was trying to point out some of the causes of the deficit we are discussing, and to give reasons why there ought to be no deficit if we had used wisely the resources at our disposal. Sir Josiah Stamp, a little while ago, told us that we were in the Stone Age of economics, and when I consider the economics of the Budget, and the economics that are talked in this House from time to time, I am...

Bill Presented: Reuters (Flotation) (27 Jan 1984)

Mr Robin Corbett: ...whatever its legal status. When the agreement was made—and we know that the Government played a part in the negotiations—we are entitled to assume that those whose signatures went over the 6d stamp on the back of the agreement meant what they were setting their hand to not just for the day on which they did so but for as long as Reuters did so. Otherwise it would have been a...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 20. — (Capital Gains Accruing to an Individual: Alternative Charge to Tax.) (25 May 1965)

Mr Peter Walker: ...in the ownership of British industry in recent years. We brought in several Measures to assist them, including Measures which basically affected their capital position, such as amendment of Stamp Duty. The present Government have done just the opposite. They have detracted from the advantages of investment for these people by increasing the standard rate of Income Tax, and now by applying...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (8 Apr 1963)

Mr Gilbert Mitchison: ...allowances amount to £221 million out of a total of £260 million, while the whole of the rest amount to £39½ million, of which no less than £27 million are accounted for by the changes in Stamp Duty. The point is that these concessions on investment allowances will be very small beer at present when this is an urgent problem. Although hon. Members opposite may not realise it, there...

Orders of the Day — Economic Situation (25 Jul 1957)

Mr Jo Grimond: ...shares in trust companies in quite small amounts by workers in industry. I know that there are difficulties, but some Government can overcome and the difficulty of expense can surely be met. The Stamp Duty can be repealed, we recognise the expense of handling small packets of shares, but surely the Government could consult the Stock Exchange, the Post Office and big industry to see...

Planning and Compulsory Purchase Bill (27 Jan 2004)

Lord Lucas: ...finding, through operating the big levers of state. The property market is not responsive to that—it is only part of the economy anyway. So many other influences come to bear. He cannot stick up stamp duty forever; he only has some blunt instruments. What is needed is something that bears on the supply of property. Demand is essentially generated by people and is, to some extent, out of...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation: Windfall Tax (2 Jul 1997)

Mr John Wilkinson: ...for many of my constituents in outer London, whose family budgets are stretched to the limit, it is a matter of considerable consequence. My constituents will also be affected by the increase in duty on motor fuel. They do not all travel by public transport; many have to rely on using their cars on greatly over-congested roads and the provision will create an additional burden. It is not...

Orders of the Day — National Insurance Bill: New Clause 7 (24 Jul 1972)

Mr Christopher Brocklebank-Fowler: ...to return to my previous employment for three months, but as the vacancy was only temporary I had to leave on 15th January. I could not claim unemployment pay as I had been getting a non-employed stamp while I was at home. As my father's money, consisting of £1,535, was made over to me during my employment, my social security was cut from £5·80 to £2·85 per week. Although £1,050 of...

Orders of the Day — Unemployment (Re-Committed) Bill.: Clause 19. — (Treasury advances to Unemployment Fund.) (1 May 1934)

Mr Henry White: ...aspect, having regard to the desirability of maintaining a solvent and permanent contributory system with fixed payments. From the moment that Part II begins to operate, if it carries out the duties prescribed for it, charged with the duty of relieving all the needs of the unemployed man who comes under it, including his rent, under a system from which the Poor Law stigma has been removed,...

Race Relations Act (27 May 1966)

Mr John Hunt: For the first time since I entered the House, 18 months or so ago, it is my very pleasant duty to follow a maiden speech and to offer congratulations upon it. I know that I speak for all bachelor Members on both sides of the House when I say that we always warmly welcome the recruitment of attractive lady Members to our ranks. In the case of the hon. Lady the Member for Eton and Slough (Miss...

Prime Minister (Office, Role and Functions) (28 Nov 2001)

Graham Allen: ...threaten our democratic culture. We cannot rely for ever on prime ministerial benevolence and self-discipline. Stronger institutional bulwarks are needed to keep vigil over our democracy. It is our duty in this House, and one that Downing street can no longer neglect, to think on those issues and propose some practical answers. Before then, a more routine and obvious obligation falls on us...

European Community Documents: Metropolitan Police (Firearms) (16 Jun 1994)

Mr Cyril Townsend: ...next 20 years, the British police service—the Met traditionally sets the pace—will become much more like many of its European counterparts and many more police officers will carry weapons on duty, and perhaps even off duty as happens abroad. I claim that there is a certain ratchet effect. The decisions go in one direction, and it is very seldom reversed. Finally, I claim that that...

Welfare Reform and Pensions Bill: Earnings of Workers Supplied by Service Companies etc. (3 Nov 1999)

Michael Jack: ...of property, Labour is quite happy to condone, for example, the sale of a building after the formation of a company whose sole asset is that building in order to get around some of the problems on stamp duty—we hear nothing from the Minister about that—but, when it comes to individuals making their living as personal service companies, providing flexibility to the aerospace industry...

Ways and Means: Northwich (Bull Ring Sub-Post Office) (29 Apr 1976)

Mr Alastair Goodlad: ...the Bull Ring post office. In a letter to the local newspaper, Mr. M. Evans, the branch manager of Hepworth, 70 High Street, Northwich, stated: Whenever I go into the Bull Ring Post office to buy stamps, I almost always find a queue at both counters and the staff busy with one job or another. This surely is not a feature of a trading outlet that is not viable. In contrast, on the occasions...

Orders of the Day — Private Tenants' Rights Bill (27 Apr 1984)

Mr Allan Roberts: ...market. The Government subsidise owner-occupation to the tune of £7 billion a year. They do that through mortgage tax relief, which amounted to £2·75 billion in 1983–84; capital gains tax and stamp duty exemption, which amounted to more than £2·5 billion in 1983–84; and through the discounts of £1·45 billion given to public sector tenants to buy their homes in 1982. The Labour...

Local Authorities, England and Wales (General Grant) (15 Dec 1964)

Mr Albert Cooper: ...' salaries? This is a question to which the House is entitled to an answer at some time. What account has been taken in these calculations of the increase of 3s. 3d. in the National Insurance stamp which operates from next year and which I calculate will amount to a very large sum indeed? What account has been taken of the increase in Bank Rate and petrol duty? What allowance has been made...

Scottish Parliament: Sustainable Economic Growth (11 Sep 2012)

John Mason: ...in which we put people whom we do not like—I believe that that is a brief summary of Tory policy—is not sustainable. I welcome the suggestion that one of our new taxes, the replacement for stamp duty, will be more progressive than what we currently have, and I hope that that will continue to be the pattern as we take more control over our taxation system. I welcome economic growth, but...

Outcome of the European Union Referendum - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (5 Jul 2016)

Lord St John of Bletso: ...multinationals to invest in the United Kingdom. Concerns have also been expressed about the collapse of the property market. To this end, I hope the Chancellor will consider the option of reducing stamp duty, which has had a major dampening effect on property trading. A point that has not been discussed much today is how will Brexit impact on the United Kingdom’s technology sector. The...
