Orders of the Day — CHILDREN BILL [Lords] (20 Jun 1975)

Mr Leo Abse: ...issues were raised in the House before they were put into legislative form. Therefore I point out to the hon. Member for Sutton Coldfield (Mr. Fowler), who made a thoughtful speech, that we have a duty to form a disciplined committee ready to keep one eye on the welfare of children but the other on the sessional clock. I therefore regard as regrettable the statement made today by the...

Amendment of the Law (27 Apr 2009)

Robert Syms: ...City. We talked about bonuses earlier. In terms of tax take, the Government were one of the biggest beneficiaries of the very large City bonuses. We have seen a major housing boom, which generates stamp duty and the other associated tax revenues. It is a pity that the Government did not heed the warning signs and start to run surpluses, as in the German economy. The German economy entered...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Welfare Reform Bill: Second Stage (9 Oct 2012)

Mark Durkan: ...our circumstances.  Is DWP leading DSD a merry dance?  We need to see real evidence of its commitment if we are to let this Bill pass even to its next stage.  We are not prepared to just rubber-stamp Tory legislation.  The Minister will argue today that we have no choice and that we simply cannot afford to sustain our own welfare system.  I agree and understand.  However, the ball is...

Orders of the Day — Health and Social Security Bill: Amendment to Schedule I of the Supplementary Benefit Act 1976 (2 May 1984)

Margaret Beckett: ...about £480 million to extend it to all unemployed people. Yet within a week the Chancellor, in just two measures in his Budget — the lifting of investment income surcharge and the changes in stamp duty—gave away no less than £520 million, which is far more than is necessary to make the changes that we sought then or the changes that we seek in this new clause. The Chancellor was...

Orders of the Day — Abolition of the Customs Duty on Tea. (17 Apr 1929)

Mr Anthony Eden: .... I will not add anything further on that subject It is a relief to pass from the mischief of the right hon. Gentleman to the relief we enjoy in the Budget. We all welcome the abolition of the Tea Duty. Some of us welcome it more than others. Some of us welcome it sincerely, while others welcome it with the fear that those outside may welcome it still more, but whatever the particular...

Public Bill Committee: Proceeds of Crime Bill: Clause 421 - Disclosure of information to Director (31 Jan 2002)

David Wilshire: ...to their liking. I was referring to important matters, but they fell on ears that did not want to hear. This morning's debate was about whether to delete the power to have other people undertake duties for the commissioners or whether it should be specified who, on behalf of the commissioners, could exercise that power. I hope that, during the lunch break, the Minister reflected on those...

Orders of the Day — Railways (Bangor-Afon Wen Line) (2 Jun 1964)

Hon. Thomas Galbraith: ...to cater for the traffic from Chwilog and from Butlin's camp. The position, therefore, at the moment is that the railways have made their proposals for closure, in accordance with their statutory duty to operate with due regard to efficiency and economy. That is their job, and that is what they have done. The T.U.C.C. has examined this proposal and the possible alternatives which have...

Orders of the Day — Immigration (Carriers' Liability) Bill (16 Mar 1987)

David Winnick: ..., UKIAS and, I am sure, the UNHCR, take exception to the comments of the Minister of State during exchanges on 18 February. He said that UKIAS gave the impression that it did not wish to stamp out immigration rackets and that it was determined to bend all its efforts to allowing racketeers to succeed."—[Official Report, 18 February 1987; Vol. 110, c. 910.] I regret those remarks because...

Local Transport Bill [HL] (16 Jan 2008)

(3) For subsection (6)(bb) substitute— "(bb) an Integrated Transport Authority for an integrated transport area in England;". 10C In section 134(1) (duty to act in certain cases as body engaged in commercial enterprise) after "any area which is" insert "an integrated transport area or". 10D (1) Section 137 (machinery for negotiation and...

Orders of the Day — Care Standards Bill [Lords]: General Powers of the Commission (12 Jul 2000)

Paul Burstow: ...the private health care sector, the former Secretary of State responded to a question from my hon. Friend the Member for Isle of Wight by saying that it was not the role of Government to provide a stamp of approval for the private sector. Clearly, things have moved on, and the Government recognise that there is a legitimate role for Government in providing a mechanism to give the public...

Civil List Bill. (27 May 1937)

Mr Reginald Fletcher: ...Crown must be supported with adequate and due dignity. But I feel that there is something more than that. Although the Crown has been divested of all executive authority a great variety of public duties is thrust upon the wearer of the Crown and certain members of the Royal Family. They have exacting rounds of public engagements to fulfil, and the Monarch has to be constantly at the...

Orders of the Day — Schedule 1. — (Exempted Goods.) (2 Dec 1964)

Mr Albert Cooper: ...of directors would see how it could absorb the costs of this impost. There is a limit to what one can absorb. First, we are told to absorb 6d. a gallon on petrol, then 3s. 3d. per employee on the stamp, and now a 15 per cent. surcharge on our goods. With this sort of thing going on, how do the Government think that British industry will be able to compete in the world's markets? The...

Orders of the Day — Eire (Confirmation of Agree Ments) Bill. (5 May 1938)

Mr Henry Croft: ...appear to be in any way critical of this Agreement, because I am so largely in favour of the wide scope of the peace promotion of the Government in Europe at the present time. But I think it is our duty, if we believe in Parliament, to try and draw any lessons we can from the past, not, of course, with a view of making any recriminations, but to make such recapitulations as are necessary...

Cost of Living (7 Nov 1950)

Mr Reginald Maudling: ...chap for good measure so that you can enjoy seeing him having a bad time." I also ask the House to remember that there is already a substantial capital gains tax inherent in the heavy rate of Stamp Duty which falls at this moment on both capital profits and capital losses. I have been trying to outline a number of ways in which the problem of rising costs can be tackled and I want to end...

Orders of the Day — War Damage Bill (3 Feb 1965)

Hon. Thomas Galbraith: ...of kings to the rule of law, would be horrified to think that this House, which has always been the champion of the subject against the Executive, should now become a docile instrument to rubber-stamp Executive decisions and give a kind of cloak of legality to the arbitrary spirit of power which seems to corrupt all Governments and which it is our duty in the House of Commons to curb and...

Planning Bill (12 Nov 2008)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: ...side is different from hers. As I said in Committee, I strongly believe this whole thing is the UK gold-plating. After all, there are exemptions for charities from income tax, capital gains tax, stamp duty and land tax, an 80 per cent exemption for council tax and exemptions from virtually every other tax in every other member state in Europe, and they have not been challenged. I cannot...

Orders of the Day — North Atlantic Shipping [Advances]. (22 Feb 1934)

Mr David Evans: ...what they were like. It is useless to disguise the fact that in the newer ships of other countries there has been a very great advance indeed on anything that we have. Therefore it is our bounden duty to regain our superiority. I want to deal with the financing of the proposal and to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer one or two questions. I put it to him in interrupting, very...

Scotland Bill: Third Reading (24 Apr 2012)

Lord Wallace of Tankerness: ...in the Scottish Parliament now focuses on how these powers will be used. There are important powers relating to airguns and speed limits but also with regard to taxation as well as the fact that stamp duty on land transactions will be disapplied in Scotland in 2015. When it comes to forward planning, the Scottish Parliament cannot sit around for very long before we start to get the colour...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 86 - Relevant bodies (19 Oct 2021)

Edward Argar: ...for tabling amendment 69, which seeks to ensure that Scottish Ministers are consulted before a transfer of functions in reserved areas is carried out. Clause 92 sets out the Secretary of State’s duty to consult any body to which the proposed change relates, as well as the devolved Administrations if the draft regulations apply in their jurisdictions and relate to matters that are within...

Orders of the Day — Government of Wales Bill: Transfer of Ministerial Functions (22 Jul 1998)

Mr Ted Rowlands: ...to override the other. It is difficult to work out the issues that are covered by paragraph 7. Some orders might be for agreement and some could be subject to consultation. We should not rubber stamp such provisions. We should be given vivid illustrations and examples of the areas that would be subject to agreement and those that would be for consultation. Unless we are given those, we...
