Orders of the Day — Housing (White Paper) (19 Jul 1971)

Mr Peter Walker: ...measures designed to provide a stimulus : the abolition of the betterment levy and the Land Commission, halving S.E.T., giving freedom to local authorities to sell council houses, doing away with stamp duty on mortgage deeds, coming to arrangements with building societies to give better facilities for those without capital but with reasonable incomes, making changes in the option mortgage...

Orders of the Day — Budget Proposals and Economic Situation (8 Apr 1959)

Mr Jo Grimond: ...make our industry competitive—though I must confess I now cannot find the place. Which parts of the Budget are directed towards this great theme? It can hardly be said that the reduction of beer duty will make our industry very competitive. It was argued by the Chancellor that it would reduce the cost of living, but in fact what he meant was that it would have an effect on the...

WAYS AND MEANS [9th March]: Food Enforcement Officers (Powers) (7 Apr 1949)

Sir John Langford-Holt: ..., likely to be affected in this matter only in that capacity. In excusing the existence of the enforcement officers of her Department, the right hon. Lady was confident that they performed their duties politely. It is within the recollection of the House that the executioners under Herr Hitler used to wear tails and white gloves, but that did not in any way cleanse the deeds which they...

Public Bodies Bill [HL]: Committee (9th Day) (9 Mar 2011)

Lord Morris of Aberavon: ...The Government protest that they wish to maintain the independence of S4C. If the BBC is to be its main financier, it will be the ultimate accounting officer and all S4C's expenditure will have the stamp of BBC accountability. If I am wrong, perhaps the accounting provisions can be explained. Having paid tribute to the Tory Government's decision, perhaps I can reveal that for six years as...

Neighbourhood Planning Bill - Second Reading (17 Jan 2017)

Baroness Greengross: ...of housing with care to older people and to young people seeking somewhere to live. It is for this reason that I would like to go further and explore in Committee the possibility of placing a duty on local authorities to plan and quantify the need for and provision of this type of specialist housing when they prepare their local plans and for them to have an obligation to ensure that every...

Foreign Affairs (23 Jul 1956)

Mr John Biggs-Davison: ...and insularity. I am not going to suggest that insularity has been confined to that side of the House. It was, I believe, in the time of a Conservative Administration that the Post Office used to stamp upon letters the reminder that postage to Europe is 4d., thus assuming that Great Britain is not a part of Europe. However, the tendency began in the Labour Governments after the war always...

Supply. (29 Jun 1922)

Mr John Baird: ...who are most successful as probation officers are not to be found easily. You cannot get them by advertising in the public Press, or in commonplace ways of that sort. In order to carry out the duties with which they are entrusted, they must be men and women who feel a special vocation for that particular kind of work, and it was made quite clear from the inquiry held by the Departmental...

Orders of the Day — Economic Policy. (7 Aug 1940)

Mr Emanuel Shinwell: ...is suffering from the absence of clear decisions. That is due to the absence of a plan. My right hon. Friend the Minister without Portfolio, in speaking about committees, forgot to mention the Stamp Committee. We were told that the function of the Stamp Committee was to plan, to map out, to present a clear picture of what was required. If that is not the function of the Stamp Committee,...

Orders of the Day — Club, Capel Curig (Planning Appeal) (1 Dec 1959)

Mr Henry Brooke: .... The inspector is an experienced civil servant appointed by me to hold appeals and in recent years I have had nothing but high regard expressed of the manner in which my inspectors carry out that duty. But the Minister must decide. He and not a civil servant, is responsible to Parliament. No one deplores more than I do the absence today on account of illness of the hon. Member for...

Amendment of the Law: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (27 Mar 2007)

Alistair Darling: ...money on extra prison places, more housing, and a new border police force. At the same time, they have already promised to cut another 1p off corporation tax. They also have a commitment to abolish stamp duty at a cost of £4 billion, as well as to introduce a transferable married couple's allowance that would help only 1 million of the 12 million married couples. The Tories have massive...

Orders of the Day — Prices and Profits (27 Jul 1951)

Mrs Barbara Castle: ...stock would gradually reach the market and cause at least a temporary recession in prices.The practice was morally wrong and contrary to all accepted standards of business probity. It was the duty of the Board of Trade to give an immediate and unequivocal ruling on such a vitally important matter. … That is an authority which I am sure the hon. Member for Louth (Mr. Osborne) will accept...

Clause 1. (AMENDMENT OF SECTION 1 OF PRINCIPAL ACT.) (28 Feb 1968)

Mr James Callaghan: ...- stances which are leading to their decision, forced or voluntary, to leave East Africa. If the High Commissioner decides to allocate a voucher to such an applicant, an entry certificate will be stamped in the passport by the entry certificate officer. An entry certificate is the equivalent of the visas that are required by some foreign nationals, and takes the form of a rubber stamp...

Public Bill Committee: Defamation Bill: New Clause 4 - Action for defamation brought by body corporate (26 Jun 2012)

Paul Farrelly: ...it afterwards admitted, was that it identified the wrong tax. It alleged that the saving was of corporation tax, whereas in fact it was of a more obscure but still important property tax called stamp duty land tax. At the time, in solidarity, Private Eye launched its own investigation and found that Tesco was using elaborate schemes, legally, to avoid corporation tax too. Tesco, as has...

Unemployment Insurance [Advances and Payments]. (22 Jun 1931)

Miss Margaret Bondfield: ...have had mounting unemployment throughout the 19th century, but we had, as a matter of fact, nothing of the kind. It is because these articles were published under the honoured name of Sir Josiah Stamp, who has been very careful not to associate himself with the conclusions reached, and because of the prominence given to them in relation to this Debate, that I have felt justified in...

Orders of the Day — Crown Prosecution Service (12 Jan 1995)

Mr Derek Spencer: ...of the evidence are such that they do not justify conviction, he can convey that view to Crown counsel and defending counsel. Far from being improper, that is quite appropriate and the judge's duty as part of his supervisory power is to do just that. The judge heard virtually all the evidence before expressing the view that in his judgment it would be inappropriate for the Crown to press...

Government Contracts (16 May 1978)

Sir John Cope: ...regard to all the circumstances including price, of the goods and services to be supplied. The Bill would provide for fines related to the size of the contract involved. If we in this House do not stamp on this practice now, I believe that the practice will increase. Indeed, even since I put this motion on the Order Paper the required 21 days ago, a further extension of the practice has...

National Insurance Contributions Bill (14 Jun 2021)

Jesse Norman: ...that they provide. These include an enhanced 10% rate of structures and buildings allowance, an increased 100% capital allowance for companies investing in plant and machinery, and full relief from stamp duty on land or property purchases. The employer’s NICs relief for workers in freeports contained in the Bill encourages employment while supporting regional growth. Under this measure,...

Orders of the Day — PUBLIC WORKS LOANS (No. 2) BILL (19 Jun 1967)

Mrs Margaret Thatcher: ...and those mornings are perhaps not times when most hon. Members are present. We should look at the Bill from three points of view—those of the Treasury and the local authority, which it is our duty to do, and the point already mentioned by my hon. Friend the Member for Worcestershire, South (Sir G. Nabarro). But trying to look at it from the point of view of this last aspect—the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Pensions (3 Oct 2000)

Kieran McCarthy: ...have a full contribution record due to having earned less than the lower earnings limit, spent time out of the labour market caring for and raising a family, or paid the reduced National Insurance stamp. Even if someone has a full basic pension, it is not sufficient to live on. Its value in relation to average earnings has fallen since the link with earnings was broken in 1980. Maggie...

Orders of the Day — Sierra Leone Independence Bill (22 Mar 1961)

Mr Norman Pannell: ...guided and controlled, but they exercised no compulsion and I was much influenced by, and interested in, the fact that when Ghana gained her independence the independent Government were able to stamp out swollen shoot in the cocoa crop, which was threatening that industry, in a manner in which the British had never been able to do. I do not know whether an independent Government enlists...
