Scotland Bill: Committee (1st Day) (26 Jan 2012)

Lord Browne of Ladyton: ...available and can be used as soon as possible for the betterment of Scotland and its people. If they are not, the Scottish people will know who decided not to take them. Further, the devolution of stamp duty land tax will potentially give the Scottish Government a significant lever to stimulate the Scottish housing sector or encourage the appropriate development of land. On Saturday I went...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means: Budget Statement (21 Mar 2000)

Gordon Brown: ...of savings. Instead, for one more year I will keep the ceiling at £7,000. I said last November that I would, in future, make an annual Budget decision on one matter: real-terms rises in road fuel duties—the money to go to a new ring-fenced fund for roads and public transport. Since the pre-Budget report, world oil prices have risen rapidly from $23 to $30 a barrel. So, in this Budget...

New clause 3: Amendment of Law Relating to (21 Feb 1994)

Ian Paisley: ...should look to its own citizens, to its own well-being and to where we should want our country to go. I have listened to the speeches in which some principles were paraded as if they bore the stamp of infallibility. It has been argued that private morality should not be a matter for the House. If we followed that principle, how many Acts of Parliament would have to be destroyed? It is...

Deferred Division (12 Mar 2003)

John Smith: .... We have introduced some huge benefits, including the minimum income guarantee for our pensioners, the working families tax credit and one that has been very important for my constituents—the stamp duty exemption in less-favoured areas. Five wards in my constituency have benefited directly from that exemption, but unfortunately many of my constituents, like those of other hon. Members,...

Orders of the Day — Industrial Organisation Bill (13 Feb 1947)

Mr Jack Diamond: ...words appear: Undertaking the certification of produ ts … I would like to see added "undertaking the certification of efficiency". I would like it to be clearly established that it is part of the duty of a development council not only to make inquiries as to the efficiency of a particular unit in an industry, but also to publish the results in the form that there should be established a...

Bribery Bill [HL]: Second Reading (9 Dec 2009)

Lord Lyell of Markyate: ...to the bribery of foreign public officials. There is quite properly a strong desire, led by bodies such as the Corner House and Transparency International, to seek to do everything that we can to stamp out the widespread bribery that exists in substantial areas of foreign trade and commerce. But this is a complex area. If the new law is to be successful, it must be drafted with as much...

Orders of the Day — Prevention of Fraud (Investments) Bill. (21 Nov 1938)

Hon. Oliver Stanley: ...now registered under the Industrial and Provident Societies Act, to make up their mind within a year to transform themselves into an ordinary company under the Companies Act without the payment of stamp duty or registration fees. Clause 9 is intended to deal with another loophole. There have been one or two cases of fraud by companies registered as building societies. We are engaged in...

Plant Varieties Bill [Lords]: Alteration to effect of 1964 Act (No. 1) (12 Apr 1983)

Mr Nigel Spearing: ...that the principle is that the law gives protection to plant breeders and the Bill promotes an extension in time. 8.15 pm However, the protection of the law also implies certain obligations and duties. The new clause refers not to anything bred or discovered in the United Kingdom, but to anything that is discovered in the wild—not bred in a breeding station—in another country. The...

Orders of the Day — Summary Jurisdiction (Appeals) Bill. (3 Mar 1933)

Sir Noel Goldie: ...may render the Bill even more useful than it is in its present form. I should like to draw the attention of the House to a point of view which has not yet been dealt with. I speak as one whose duty it is to administer justice as a Recorder in a large industrial borough in the North of England. I have had the privilege of occupying that position for some four years, and during that time,...

Ways and Means: Financial Statement (18 Mar 2015)

George Osborne: ...from those who, in office, were the friends of the avoiders and the evaders. When we came to office, City bankers boasted of paying lower tax rates than their cleaners, the rich routinely avoided stamp duty and foreigners paid no capital gains tax. We have changed all that, and it was this Prime Minister who put tackling international tax evasion at the top of the agenda at the G8. We will...

European Community (5 Mar 1986)

Sir Brandon Rhys Williams: ...in regard to changes in taxation that will also be necessary. Looking towards this country's Budget, I should like to say a word in support of those who are campaigning for a reduction in the stamp duty on investment decisions. We want to create favourable tax conditions for the integrated capital market. We want to take off London the burden which we ourselves have imposed upon London. I...

Clause 13: Citation and Extent (8 Jul 1977)

Mr Hugh Rossi: ...that if the authorities are right and the Government fail to make the resources available that the local authorities need, the Bill cannot work. We can pass as many pieces of paper as we like and stamp them as Acts of Parliament, but if it is physically and practically impossible to implement them they will remain waste pieces of paper. We do not wish to see a situation arise in which a...

Zero-Hours Contracts (27 May 2015)

Richard Bacon: ...and given to others, sometimes with only hours’ notice. I have seen how many use this as a way to simply force out staff who may have complained about quality of care. Is this acceptable? ‘Duty of Care’ means that we have to raise concerns, yet many are too scared of the implications financially if they do. Isn’t it time someone understood their Duty of Care to us? Isn’t it time...

Housing: Spending Review — Debate (4 Nov 2010)

Lord Howarth of Newport: ...has the highest wealth per capita in the western world. Higher home ownership correlates with higher unemployment, as figures in both the United States and the United Kingdom show. In the UK, stamp duty is an additional obstacle to labour mobility. Productivity is impaired in an inflexible economy. Our VAT regime makes things worse, with new building zero-rated while the repair and...

Revised Draft Airports National Policy Statement - Motion to Take Note (15 Mar 2018)

Baroness Chisholm of Owlpen: ...levels of compensation for property owners. Heathrow Airport Limited has pledged that home owners in compulsory and voluntary purchase zones would receive 125% of unblighted market value, plus stamp duty and costs. The airport has also pledged in excess of £700 million to noise-insulate residential properties, fully insulating homes most affected and providing a contribution of £3,000...

Orders of the Day — Industry and Employment (12 Nov 1984)

Mr Anthony Grant: ...to be simpler and more intelligible for the savers and investors, the removal of the remaining disincentive effects of capital gains tax and capital transfer tax, the abolition of the ridiculous stamp duty on share transactions and the removal of restrictions on employee share schemes. We also need to encourage wider public interest in the selling of shares when public corporations are...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Charge of Income Tax for 1987–88 (29 Apr 1987)

Mr Nigel Lawson: ...this year to yield almost 50 per cent. more in real terms than capital transfer tax did in 1978–79. The yield of capital gains tax is forecast to he 80 per cent. higher in real terms, and stamp duty is up by 140 per cent. As for income tax, the higher rates applying in 1987–88 are, of course, much lower than the absurd penal rates that Labour enforced, but they are expected to yield...

Orders of the Day — Societies (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill. (20 Mar 1940)

Captain Harry Crookshank: ...could not now become so registered, can either convert itself into a company registered under the Companies Act, 1929, or amalgamate or transfer its engagements to such a company without payment of Stamp Duties provided it did so before 28th April this year. In the circumstances, since last September it may very well be that such societies may not have had the time nor the opportunity of...

Orders of the Day — Supply (13 May 1957)

Lieut-Colonel John Cordeaux: ...the Navy became increasingly fond of playing soldiers, whether by handing out rifles to the sailors and sending them ashore in landing parties to play hide-and-seek throughout the countryside, or stamping up and down the parade ground in the Royal naval barracks to the strains of martial music played by the ever-increasing number of naval bands. Very naturally after a time the sailors...

Orders of the Day — Members of the House of Commons (Conditions of Service) Bill (4 Dec 1970)

Mr Douglas Houghton: ...express my gratitude for the splendid and speedy help they gave me in the preparation of the Bill. I also wish, at the outset, to thank the sponsors of the Bill. Collectively, they have given it a stamp of respectability, and we commend the Measure to the House. I am glad that the Chamber is sparsely attended today. It would have been rather unseemly if it had been crowded by hon. Members...
