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...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Pensions Bill: Further Consideration Stage (24 Apr 2012)

Mark Durkan: ...importantly, we can show that this is a working government that can look for and exploit flexibilities of parity to the advantage of our citizens. We are not content to merely accept and rubber-stamp punitive legislation from Westminster. We are realistic enough to accept why the change has been introduced, but we cannot ignore the detriment that it will have for many. We do not accept...

Scotland: Independence Referendum — Motion to Take Note (30 Jan 2014)

Lord Shipley: ...report Raising the Capital looked closely at this, but cities across England are now calling for a suite of fiscal reforms including devolution of property tax revenue streams—council tax, stamp duty, land tax and business rates—with the ability to reform those taxes while retaining prudential rules for borrowing. The debate in Scotland will provoke a great opportunity. I welcome that,...

Holocaust (Return of Cultural Objects) (Amendment) Bill (15 Mar 2019)

Rosena Allin-Khan: ...unchallenged; to remember that we as a society are weaker when we are focused on the differences between us, instead of the common goals we share; and to remember, most importantly, that it is the duty of every Member in this House to ensure that a holocaust never happens again. It would be remiss of me to stand at this Dispatch Box and speak of the holocaust without talking about...

Police Reform and Social Responsibility Bill: Committee (4th Day) (6 Jun 2011)

Baroness Henig: ...the proposed budget-what the precept is to be spent on. Put simply-this relates to a point that the noble Lord, Lord Shipley, made on the previous group of amendments-how can the panel fulfil its duty to scrutinise and shape the precept, drawing on its own local public consultations and knowledge, and to make sure that it will meet local expectations if the panel is not told how it is to...

Immigration (Members' Representations) (26 Mar 1986)

Mr Dudley Smith: ...learned Friend and usually he allows the visitor to come for a short time and that is good. But where there is a strong suspicion that a person is trying to evade the system, it is an hon. Member's duty, perhaps not to be judge and jury, but to say that in such circumstances he will not be a party to the attempt. Otherwise, he is just a rubber stamp. That would be quite wrong. I did not...

Budget: Amendment of the Law (19 Mar 1985)

Mr John Stokes: ...in work than when receiving state benefits. The Chancellor has gone some way towards doing that. It is probably the most important action that he has taken in the Budget. I should have liked to see stamp duty on house purchase removed to make the redeployment of labour easier. I welcome the reductions in the national insurance contribution from employers and employees. That is most...

Pre-Budget Report 2009 — Motion to Take Note (16 Dec 2009)

Lord Ryder of Wensum: ...of the state. Again and again, inflation has exceeded lax Bank of England forecasts. Excuses are always offered. However, a counter-case is clear. Oil costs will probably rise; the VAT reversal and stamp duty holiday will reach an end; bond yields on two-year gilts are at a record low; and asset bubbles, such as property in the Far East, spell potential trouble and could multiply. The...

Orders of the Day — Air-Raid Precautions Bill. (15 Nov 1937)

Mr Duncan Sandys: ...rate, an intense effort will be required. Success is going to depend upon leadership, energy and impetus from the top. I submit to my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary that he has too many other duties to devote the necessary time and personal attention to this question, at any rate during the initial period of organisation. Before I came to the House this afternoon I looked up what...

Devolution and Growth Across Britain (3 Jun 2015)

Bob Neill: ...set up the London Finance Commission, which gave very cogent arguments about why property taxation was the obvious first step for straightforward devolution to local government. Business rates, stamp duty land tax and so on are areas that I hope we will look at. That is important, because it is not healthy in the long term if local government is overly dependent on the centre for grant....

Stephen Lawrence Inquiry (29 Mar 1999)

Mr Iain Coleman: ...me to speak in this interesting debate. Given the lack of time, my speech will be brief. It is crucial that, above all else, we learn the key lessons from Stephen's tragic death. We all have a duty, particularly those of us in public life, to examine our conduct and consciences to ensure that we have done so. Are we certain that our actions are consistent with the desire of all...

Orders of the Day — Heritage of the Minority. (30 Mar 1926)

Mr Thomas Griffiths: ...by law to provide for health, for unemployment, for old age pensions, and for widows' and orphans' pensions. It is estimated that the national income of the country, according to Sir Josiah Stamp—I believe the Parliamentary Secretary will take him as an authority—is something over £2,000,000,000 per annum, and in order to develop my argument I will call this a pool where the different...

Opposition Day — [19th Allotted Day]: Cross-border Crime (11 Mar 2015)

Jack Dromey: ...and online crime and prey on the vulnerable may leave them bankrupt and destitute. There is also the impact on the taxpayer. The Minister mentioned the overall tax take of £27 billion from fuel duties, but too many people in Northern Ireland who are operating across the border get away with paying no duty at all. The Northern Ireland Omnibus Survey, which measures perceptions, found that...

Orders of the Day — Police Acts (Amendment) Bill (23 Feb 1973)

Mr Leo Abse: .... The witnesses included teachers and social workers who came forward making statements alleging that they saw police officers rabbit-punching people, throw them on to spiked railings, purposely stamp on people's spectacles, fling three schoolgirl spectators to the ground, kick men in their testicles, and repeatedly punch people in the face whilst they were being held down by other...

[john cummings in the Chair] — Affordable Housing (17 Jan 2007)

Alistair Burt: ...the highest multiple since the survey began in 1974 and up sharply from 2.4 at the start of 2000." The article continues: "In a painful double-whammy, more first-time buyers are also being hit by stamp duty—56 per cent in November compared with 48 per cent a year ago." There are costs associated with first-time buying which just did not exist before. The Government's grip on the issue is...

Anglo-Egyptian Treaty. (24 Nov 1936)

Sir Geoffrey Mander: .... The type of man I have in mind—he is past that service now—is Lord Willingdon, and I hope the Foreign Office, when a vacancy occurs, will bear in mind the appointment of somebody of the stamp of those who are now sent to take high office in India as Governors of the different Provinces there. I should also like to make a comment on Article 13, dealing with the Capitulations. I am...

Cities and Local Government Devolution Bill [HL] — Second Reading (Continued) (8 Jun 2015)

Lord Goddard of Stockport: ..., it will be impossible for all parts of the country to achieve their maximum economic potential and the rebalancing of their economies. Examples could include more flexibility in the way stamp duty is applied or exploring differential rates of air passenger duty, which could have a significant impact on business growth and the development of new routes in overseas markets. We have made a...

Adjournment (Summer) (4 Aug 1980)

Mr Norman St John-Stevas: ...the Granada case. I repeat that it is important that the law, whether we approve or disapprove of it, should be obeyed. When the law has been declared by the highest court in the land there is a duty to obey it. However, as my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister said in answer to a similar question recently, it may be that the law in this regard should be reviewed. Having demanded an...

Right-to-Buy Scheme (11 Jan 2006)

Jim Fitzpatrick: .... Under the Housing Act 2004, landlords must give tenants both a written explanation of the key features of the right-to-buy scheme and information about the costs involved. They must be told about stamp duty, survey fees, paying off a mortgage, buying annual insurance and paying for gas, water and electricity. They must also be told about the costs of maintaining their homes, which...

Orders of the Day — Amendment of the Law (11 Apr 1967)

Mr John Lee: ...to introduce, and the same must be said about the proposals for allowances for women with dependent relatives. There are one or two other things which merit a word of praise. The concession about stamp duty for house purchase, which has hardly been mentioned, is also a socially desirable measure, albeit minor. However, I am afraid that, welcome though the inadequate concession about the...
