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,...

Orders of the Day — Air Transport and Travel (Industrial Training Levy) (13 May 1971)

Mr Paul Rose: ...the decision is that of the Minister or of the board. The overruling of this recommendation by the Minister means that the board has lost its independence of action. It is expected to be a rubber stamp. The Government knew that the board had been overruled and yet they have not told the House. It is only because of information that has come into my possession recently that I am in a...

Introduction (22 Mar 2006)

Gordon Brown: .... While half of carbon emissions come from buildings, a quarter come from vehicles. So today I want to do more to encourage cleaner fuels and cars. I propose to radically reform vehicle excise duty. I am introducing, to take effect tomorrow, a zero rate for a small number of cars with the very lowest carbon emissions, which will pay no duty at all. Instead of £75 for cars with low...

Retirement Pensions (1 Aug 1957)

Mr John Boyd-Carpenter: ...it. He included, for the first time on the Floor of this House, a figure—and he seemed rather surprised that I should want to know what his figure meant. The reason is perfectly simple. It is the duty of anyone who speaks from this Box upon this sort of issue to remind the House of the cost of any proposal put forward. Unless the right hon. Gentleman will give me clear figures I cannot...

Orders of the Day — Moneylenders Bill. (23 Apr 1926)

Mr Cyril Atkinson: ...in the long run will have to pay. With reference to the first Clause, where it is provided that a licence has to be obtained for every place in which a business is carried on, with a fee or duty of £15 in respect of every licence, to one of these companies that means that they will have to pay £675 licence duty. That seems to me somewhat vindictive, but I am not so concerned with the...

Orders of the Day — Rhodesia (7 Dec 1965)

Mr Eldon Griffiths: ...and I reject it and I hope that the hon. Member will accept my rejection. But, secondly, I hate war and in what he has said this evening the hon. Gentleman has seemed to suggest that, in order to stamp out the evil of racialism, he is prepared to espouse the evil of war. I do not see the equation so easily as that. I find it more complex, more delicate and more difficult, and it is for...

Serious Crime Bill [HL] (21 Mar 2007)

Baroness Scotland of Asthal: ...improved. It is a key role of an auditor to identify such risks. The national fraud initiative has to date played an important role in helping auditors to discharge this aspect of their statutory duty. They have been congratulated on the efficacy of their work. Furthermore, it is unclear what exactly the noble Lords and the noble Baroness seek to achieve by this amendment. The national...

Insurance Companies (5 Nov 1986)

Mr Bill O'Brien: ...expressed by the policyholder and an explanation is requested as to why so much money is deducted from the payments made, it is said that in the early years of the policy commission to the agent, stamp duty, costs and servicing the business are the real reason for the deduction. Even if one accepts that the point made by the actuary for the insurance company is correct, and that there are...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Race Equality (14 Sep 2020)

Emma Sheerin: ...the motion, to send a clear and unequivocal message to the population of the North that racism is a scourge that the representatives in this Chamber take seriously and will act with urgency to stamp out. Sinn Féin believes in a society that cherishes equality and respect as central tenets, a society free of discrimination in all its forms. The House must send a resounding signal that we...

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland (Emergency Provisions) Bill (17 Apr 1973)

Mr William Whitelaw: ...perhaps I should explain that we have removed those powers which we do not think would be necessary. It would be a grave responsibility to commit the security forces to their appallingly difficult duties in Northern Ireland and then refuse to give them the powers needed to carry out those duties. I hope that these provisions of the Bill will be looked at in that light. It is the...

Introduction (16 Mar 2005)

Gordon Brown: ...on investment I come to my decisions on taxation. I have examined rates of corporation tax and capital gains tax. I have no need to raise them, so I propose to freeze rates. On air passenger duty, I will freeze rates. On insurance premium tax, I propose to freeze rates. On the climate change levy and the aggregates levy, I will freeze rates. On company car taxation, I will freeze rates. I...

Public Bill Committee: Homelessness Bill: Clause 2 - Homelessness Reviews (10 Jul 2001)

Tim Loughton: ...been continuously empty for more than 10 years. That involves only a small number, because of the difficulty of proving that a property has been empty for such a long time. We were also promised stamp duty exemptions on properties in areas of deprivation, which would help with the problem of homelessness and could be targeted at empty homes. We were promised that by April, but still we...

Orders of the Day — Industrial Relations (3 Jul 1972)

Mr Paul Rose: ...Minister criticised those of us who referred to the court as a puppet court, but the Court of Appeal itself when considering applications by the Minister said that it was no more than a rubber stamp. It is regrettable that the Prime Minister did not seem to understand the difference between telling people to do something that is unlawful and telling people not to register. In some cases...

European Council, Stockholm (26 Mar 2001)

Lord Strathclyde: ...statement by member states that they will push for a single market in financial services by the end of 2003, does the noble Baroness believe that that has any implications for current levels of stamp duty imposed by the Chancellor on sales of equity in the London market? Noting the lengthy appendix to the conclusions on moves towards what is described as, "further convergence of...

Housing and the Building industry (11 Feb 1981)

Mr Anthony Durant: ...construction industry would receive tremendous help if capital allowances were more liberal for the buildings, and not only for the equipment inside. There should be an uplift of the exemption on stamp duty, to £30,000. The level is too low for the first-time buyer and the small purchaser. An examination of VAT on repairs and maintenance might be considered. Local government often causes...

Economic Expansion (30 Nov 1973)

Mr Robert Taylor: ..., which is the subject of our debate. That, however, is a very small price to pay. I should like also to see a system introduced at the earliest opportunity by which credit cards are subject to a stamp duty of some form. Our problems today have been stimulated by the free issue of credit cards to people who have in no way solicited them. It is a problem that I raised in a Question at the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: Local Government Finance (10 Feb 2015)

Gisela Stuart: ...it is no more than a call centre, let us talk about that. Let us use that as the basis of saying that the Conservative Government vision of local government is so minimalist that it has statutory duties and beyond that very little extra. Let us have a debate about that. I do not think the Secretary of State is making that case, however. He is saying he has a much greater vision, including...
