Sir Kingsley Wood: ...with finance and particularly Financial Resolutions, should be jealously guarded and when we approach, as we do to-day, a Financial Resolution which deals with such a vast sum of money it is the duty of every Member to address himself to one of his most important obligations as a Member of Parliament. We are dealing this morning with a vast sum of money. We may have every sympathy with its...

Pubs Code 2016 — [Mr David Crausby in the Chair] (24 Jan 2018)

Theresa Villiers: ...asked to exercise his right under the code to move to a market rent only arrangement, the pubco asserted that that required a new lease, which is costly to negotiate, with legal fees to pay and stamp duty and so on. Moreover, the pubco proposed onerous new terms, including payment of six months’ rent up front in advance, and the obligation to redecorate the premises completely, inside...

Prayers: Adjournment of the House (5 Apr 1995)

Mr Raymond Powell: ...' in our society have ruined it with the softly, softly approach. Surely we must return to some level of common sense where a teacher is able to discipline a pupil, and a policeman can perform his duty without threat of losing his or her job. A few canes didn't do me any harm. The world and the 'law' has gone crazy. The police must have more powers to handle difficult situations.There is...

CHEQUES (No. 2) BILL (12 Apr 1957)

Mr Graham Page: ..., but I have drawn it from a more recent document, the Ninety-Ninth Report of the Commissioners of Her Majesty's Inland Revenue for the year ended 31st March, 1956, in which the proceeds of the Stamp Duty on cheques are stated. By simple mathematics one reaches from that the figure of 780 million cheques drawn each year. About 4 per cent. of those are bearer cheques. That means that some...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Transport: Airport capacity and airspace policy (2 Feb 2017)

Chris Grayling: ...need to be compulsorily purchased to make way for the new runway or for those who take up the voluntary scheme of 25% above the full market value of their home and cover all costs including stamp duty, reasonable moving costs and legal fees;put in place a number of measures to mitigate the impacts of noise, including legally binding noise targets and periods of predictable respite. The...

Orders of the Day — Scotland (Industry and Employment) (20 Jun 1963)

Mr William Baxter: ...corporation on the same basis as the excellent organisation that exists in England but applies to the whole of Britain. I think that we should have one specifically for Scotland. It is our duty to demand it. When we read this excellent document and see the first-class work being done, we find that what has been done in Scotland is not sufficient to regenerate or rebuild our national...

Procedure (Standing Orders) (4 Nov 1947)

Mr Samuel Silverman: ...I have been in the House of Commons than the Chancellor, nor a more yielding one if a point is made. On the last occasion a very small point affecting a small number of people—I am talking of the Stamp Duty on articled clerks—was accepted, and, indeed, at the very last stage, when most people thought it was out of Order and could not be done at all. To say of the present Chancellor...

Orders of the Day — House of Commons (Redistribution of Seats) Bill (11 Feb 1958)

Mr Arthur Skeffington: ...even the best Commission in the world could have considered every local factor and brought forward in the case of every constituency the most perfect new boundary. I would have thought that the duty of the Government, even at that late stage, was to take into account very carefully all that was said, and, where it felt that the case was made out, to make adjustments. Certainly Governments...

Mr Jack Diamond: ...and expense involved for the taxpayer in mounting an avoidance scheme of this complicated kind. The Solicitor-General described a possible example. It involved a number of leases, a vast number of stamp duties, professional fees galore, doubtful questions about the use of property in the meantime and a host of practical difficulties and expenses. People will not go to that expense unless...

Affordable Housing — Motion to Take Note (25 Jun 2015)

Viscount Hanworth: ...stuffed full of money by the programme of quantitative easing. They must be compelled to make their loans elsewhere than to the housing market. House prices should also be constrained by taxation. Stamp duty levied on the buyers of properties is an absurdity. It should be abolished and, in its place, a significant sales tax should be levied on the sellers of properties in order to capture...

Introduction (17 Mar 2004)

Gordon Brown: ...tax. So let me now set out the Budget's decisions on tax. 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, on insurance premium tax, and on vehicle excise duties for cars and lorries, I propose to freeze rates. On the climate change levy, I will freeze rates and at the same time extend the...

Polish Forces, Great Britain (Anti-Semitism) (6 Apr 1944)

Miss Eleanor Rathbone: ...overwhelming that there is a great deal of this kind of anti-Semitism, which has prevented men who were, say, Jewish doctors from being employed in the Polish Army on anything but rough manual duty, and has prevented men entitled to stripes or to commissions from getting them, as well as the kind of insults which the hon. Member for Maldon has quoted. There- fore, I do not doubt the...

Outlawries Bill: Debate on the Address — [First Day] (6 Nov 2007)

David Cameron: ...should have been in the Queen's Speech. In this new age of freedom, we need to give people more opportunity and power over their lives. That means a supply-side revolution in our schools; cutting stamp duty to help people on to the housing ladder; and more power for local government. In this age of unease, we need to strengthen families and make our society more responsible. That means...

Brexit: Appointment of Joint Committee - Motion to Agree (3 Jul 2019)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...situation where government becomes almost impossible. I have been listening to the two candidates; have noble Lords totted up the bill? There are tax cuts for the rich, slashing of corporation tax, stamp duty reductions, no-deal relief programmes for farmers and fisher fleets, pay rises for public sector workers, more for police, education and defence, and major infrastructure spending. We...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Industrial Relations (3 Jul 1969)

Sir Edward Brown: ...been too difficult for the party opposite. "Fair Deal at Work" will be at the forefront of the Tory manifesto at the coming General Election Given the mandate by the nation, we shall not shirk our duty to enact it. The Prime Minister gave a dreadful exhibition today about the years of Tory Government. I am not ashamed of those 13 years—not one scrap. I am proud that, taking over from a...

Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (27 Nov 2003)

Lord Newby: ...about the robustness of the Government's tax revenue expectations, which appear very much to have been based on the circumstances at the height of the stock market and dot.com boom. In terms of stamp duty and, more importantly, income tax revenues, those circumstances no longer obtain. I think that that raises a serious question about the Government's own forecasts and the way in which...

Working Practices of the House (21 May 2002)

Earl Ferrers: ...passed to the Procedure Committee, with the inference that virtually all the work on the subject has been done by this ad hoc committee and all that the Procedure Committee has to do is to rubber-stamp the proposals. The noble and learned Lord said that his committee had worked on the proposals for nine months. We all admire the assiduity with which the committee spent its time. But, under...

Strategic Defence and Security Review — Motion to Take Note (12 Nov 2010)

Lord Burnett: ...committees, in which he was always generous, in the halcyon days when there was a fair bit of money around. It is a little known fact that the noble Lord is the world's greatest living expert on stamp duty reserve tax, which he introduced. It has been said that the strategic defence and security review should answer the question posed by the previous Secretary of State, "What sort of...

Budget Proposals and Economic Situation (13 Apr 1959)

Mr Roger Cooke: ...are on these small points, I think that we must consider the wider ownership of industrial shares. To encourage the growth of the unit trust concept, I should like to see 1 per cent. taken off the Stamp Duty on share transactions and consideration given to the freeing from tax of, say, the first £15 of dividend from unit trusts, in the same way as interest on Post Office savings is freed....

Licensed Premises in New Towns Bill (Allocation of Time) (21 Jul 1952)

Major Geoffrey Bing: ...not being properly considered in another place, what does that matter? When the right hon. and learned Gentleman comes to deal with the Constitution, he regards the other place as such a rubber stamp and is prepared to give them such a short time that he could well spare a day or so off their time for the consideration of this Bill. What are the matters we can discuss here? Earlier I...
