Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 42. — (Selective Employment Tax.) (29 Jun 1966)

Sir Raymond Gower: ...can be a grave disability for a person seeking employment. Indeed, were I at this moment responsible to a company for engaging personnel, I would be less than human and probably not doing my duty efficiently if, in many cases, I engaged a deaf person rather than a person with good hearing, so great can this disability be. Of course, we all know of deaf people who, by virtue of their...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Post office provision (28 Jan 2002)

Iris Robinson: ...in Northern Ireland, employing around 4,500 people. Every employee of the Post Office not only provides a postal service for the citizens of the United Kingdom but fulfils a much greater social duty, especially in rural areas. Most post offices represent an integral part of local society, and they act as a focal point for many local communities. They act as a reassurance to many elderly...

CLIFTON SUSPENSION BRIDGE BILL (By Order) (2 Apr 1974)

Mr Robert Cooke: ...kinds, has brought about the Bill. There have been some unkind things said about the present trustees. I think that it is unfair to attack them. In the eyes of some, they have the local hereditary stamp about them, but there is no harm in that. There are three trustees who could not come into that category and who are distinguished engineers. The other trustees might be called members of...

Council Funding and Social Care — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (22 Feb 2017)

Huw Merriman: ...not believe that my right hon. Friend the Member for East Devon was calling for one either. There is an argument that, if social care continues to be funded locally, there needs to be an additional stamp duty so that, if an asset in Surrey is sold and downsizing occurs, the money actually follows someone into the county. That should not be required, because it does not really make sense...

Orders of the Day — Aliens (Treatment on Ships). (25 Feb 1941)

Colonel Josiah Wedgwood: ...of Inquiry is held. Some steps ought to be taken to get some money to these refugees who are now penniless in Australia. To have no money even to buy razor blades, cigarettes, newspapers or postage stamps is a terrible position for them. Their money has been taken from them. I think the Government might arrange for them to have some small sum each week pending the decision of the Court of...

Fuel Poverty (Norfolk) (25 Jun 2008)

Christopher Fraser: ..., but a statutory requirement. In 2001, the Government pledged to end fuel poverty for vulnerable households by 2010 and for all households by 2016. They are almost certainly set to fail in that duty and are facing court action from Friends of the Earth and Help the Aged. Figures released by Age Concern and National Energy Action suggest that around 4.5 million people in Britain are...

Special Educational Needs and Disability Bill [H.L.] (19 Dec 2000)

Baroness Blackstone: ...has supported work at some 6,000 schools. That increase will have a direct impact on the physical environment of many schools. I turn to funding for post-16 providers. We recognise that the new duties under the Bill will increase their costs in that they will increase the likely take-up of places by disabled students--I am sure that all noble Lords welcome that--and generate higher demand...

Affordable Housing (8 Oct 2008)

Iain Wright: ...to benefit from below-market rent for two to three years while they save for a deposit. After that, they will have the option of buying a share of the property. The package also included a one-year stamp duty holiday on all houses costing up to £175,000, meaning that about 50 per cent. of all house purchases will be exempt. We are also providing more support for social rented homes by...

Orders of the Day — Canada Bill (17 Feb 1982)

Mr Kevin McNamara: ...Parliament had a right to nit-pick about what Canada wanted or did not want for its citizens—that is a matter for Canada, and we cannot properly intervene—but because we had a right and a duty to protest when it appeared that the Canadian Government sought to rubber stamp proposals through this Parliament which they could not get through their own Parliament and provinces under their...

Orders of the Day — House of Commons Disqualification Bill: Fourth Schedule. — (Nactments Repealed.) (12 Mar 1957)

Mr Clement Davies: ...whereas I should have thought that by far the better principle would have been that, once having been elected by a constituency and having had that honour and great privilege conferred upon him, in duty bound he ought to respect the wishes of that constituency, treasure the fact that he was a Member of this House and do his duty as such a Member, and the post would go. Surely that is the...

Economic Prosperity and Employment — Motion to Take Note (18 Jul 2013)

Baroness Kramer: ...necessary support for small businesses. I am incredibly conscious that there is a wide range of programmes, such as EIS and other tax incentives to invest in small businesses, and the removal of stamp duty from AIM so that small businesses can raise public shares. UKTI also has very effective programmes now to provide support for exports, and the Government are reshaping export finance...

Post Office (Mistakes) (23 Oct 1967)

...is more important than anything else is the certainty of arrival. If only the Postmaster-General spent more time arresting the deterioration of the postal service and less time on the new issues of stamps, which remind me of the issues from Central American States in my youth, the whole economy of the country might well improve. In the last four months, I have had considerable...

Scottish Parliament: Broken Promises (4 Oct 2007)

Murdo Fraser: ...give £2,000 to first-time home buyers, which has been quietly dropped—although I am delighted that the Conservative party has now offered to help those self-same buyers by pledging to abolish stamp duty on purchases up to £250,000. There is one other pledge that the Labour motion does not mention but which is covered in our amendment: the commitment in the SNP manifesto to adopt the...

Orders of the Day — Rates (5 May 1965)

Mr Peter Walker: ...local taxation. In respect of rating we must remember that when we came into office there were three forms of taxation relating directly to the ownership of a house. There was first the 2 per cent. Stamp Duty charge upon the value of the house at the time of purchase; secondly, the Schedule A tax, andthirdly, the local authority rate. At the end of the period of Conservative Government two...

National Health Insurance. (7 Nov 1939)

Mr Samuel Silverman: .... As I understand the scheme, it was precisely because the Ministry of Labour realised how difficult it was for the employé to do that, that the onus was placed upon the employer to see that the stamps were affixed. The employer is in control of the money and of the cards. He is always there and his books can be inspected, whereas the employé is not in so advantageous a position for...

Scottish Parliament: Parliamentary Reform (Changes to Standing Orders) (6 Jun 2012)

Paul Wheelhouse: ...2012 will require additional scrutiny in areas associated with repatriated powers and, especially, regarding the tax powers in areas such as the Scottish rate of income tax, landfill tax and the stamp duty land tax. One of the biggest concerns of former colleagues and people in the media and academia who gave evidence to the committee was the evident lack of topicality of matters for...

90TH Birthday of Her Majesty the Queen (21 Apr 2016)

Chris Bryant: ...simply to underline quite how many people’s lives Her Majesty has touched. She has visited the Rhondda many times. Indeed, a photo of her at Plas Horeb in Treherbert in 1989 was used for the 24p stamp to celebrate her 40th anniversary in 1992. When Her Majesty came to the Rhondda in June 2002, I was asked to walk with her past the great number of people who had lined the streets of...

Scottish Parliament: Devolution of Further Powers (21 May 2015)

Mark McDonald: ...statement and what he considers to be “the disruptive potential of what the UK Government does” when it sets its tax policies. He said: “This Parliament spent a long time trying to reform stamp duty land tax and to produce a property tax that would be implementable by the beginning of April, but the UK Government has basically disrupted that implementation by suddenly changing the...

Housing and Regeneration Bill (28 Apr 2008)

Earl Cathcart: ...a good talk on meeting the aspirations of first-time buyers, but have done more than any other Government to build roadblocks to home ownership, including restricting the right to buy, ramping up stamp duty, driving up council tax and, now, introducing new costs with HIPs. When are the Government going to bring down these barriers? Do they realise that the more one encourages home...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Schedule 7 (19 Jun 2008)

...; “money” includes— (a) a traveller’s cheque, (b) a promissory note, (c) a bill of exchange, and (d) any other— (i) instrument that is evidence of a debt, or (ii) voucher, stamp or similar token or document which is capable of being exchanged for money, goods or services, and “relevant rule” means—’. No. 356, in schedule 7, page 165, line 5,...
