Privileges and Conduct - Motion to Agree (15 Nov 2018)

Lord McNally: ..., Lord Pannick, decides to divide the House, I will be in the Lobby with him. But I sincerely hope that what was said and will be said in this debate is that the House should be doing its proper duty in this process. That proper duty is not to rubber stamp, tick a box, or to give votes of confidence to this or that chairman, but to get the right decision about the person we are dealing...

Business of the House: New Clause 1 — Impact on Government revenues (3 Dec 2014)

Hywel Williams: ...large accountancy firms, such as PricewaterhouseCoopers, have said that the changes to the annuities system will be a net positive for the Treasury. They perhaps foresee the revenue raised through stamp duty and other associated taxes. But it is not the Treasury’s coffers that will suffer, at least not in the short term. It is the potential bubble in house prices that concerns me,...

Autumn Statement (24 Nov 1983)

Mr David Howell: ...available. There are examples, and I shall give a classic one. I declare an interest here because I advise an organisation that would benefit from it. If the Chancellor were able to unscramble the stamp duty, I bet that the effect in terms of lost revenue would not emerge. At the same time, if the stamp duty in shares remains at the present level and a large amount of business is siphoned...

Scottish Parliament: Age Scotland (75th Anniversary) (3 Oct 2018)

Sandra White: ...for everyone in Scotland. It is worth reflecting for a moment on some of the landmark achievements of the past 75 years. Those include legislation to make the provision of a home help service a duty on local authorities; the exclusion of amenity housing from the right-to-buy legislation in the 1980s; the introduction of free nursing and personal care for older people in Scotland; and the...

Major Milos Stankovic (14 Jul 1999)

...British citizen. He was educated in British schools. He was accepted into Sandhurst and the Parachute Regiment, and embarked, as a captain, on a conventional military career. He undertook tours of duty in Northern Ireland and with the UN force in Kuwait. In autumn 1992, when the wars of the dissolution of Yugoslavia began, the British Army was looking for someone in its ranks with...

Scottish Parliament: Programme for Government 2014-15 (26 Nov 2014)

Claire Baker: ...is welcome, particularly because of the additional support that that will provide to the Scottish land fund. Are there other opportunities open to us through, for example, the replacement of stamp duty with land and buildings transaction tax? Taxes and financial incentives that are decided by the UK Government are relevant, but we need to look at the powers that we have here and how we can...

Ways and Means: Financial Statement (3 Mar 2021)

Rishi Sunak: ..., not returning to the standard rate until April of next year. In total, we are cutting VAT next year by almost £5 billion. The housing sector supports more than half a million jobs. The cut in stamp duty that I announced last summer has helped hundreds of thousands of people buy a home and supported the economy at a critical time, but due to the sheer volume of transactions that we are...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (31 Jan 2018)

Baroness Altmann: ...as a result of Parliament’s respect for the 2016 referendum vote to leave the EU. Some key issues of concern with the Bill have already been brilliantly exposed by previous speakers. It is our duty to scrutinise the legislation before us, which raises fundamental issues that go to the heart of our constitutional framework and parliamentary sovereignty. I do hope that my noble friend will...

Green Homes Grant Voucher Scheme — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (27 May 2021)

Philip Dunne: ...homes, so why not zero or 5%, depending on the item, for those that need improving as well? We feel that the Treasury has taken a sceptical approach to such measures. It ruled out changes to VAT or stamp duty rebates, which is another suggestion made by industry that we think has significant scope: the rebate would be spent on getting the building up to energy efficiency standards. The UK...

Orders of the Day — Ireland.: Murders and Reprisals. (24 Nov 1920)

Mr Herbert Asquith: ...presence of their wives. They can only be the work of men who are lost to all sense both of humanity and honour. These officers died in the strictest and fullest sense of the word martyrs to public duty. I will add that it would be not only a relief but a satisfaction to all of us to know that the criminals have been got hold of, and will suffer the extreme penalty of the law. The very...

Colonial Affairs. (4 Aug 1942)

Mr David Gammans: .... Nowadays there is not as much colour prejudice in the Colonial Empire as some hon. Members opposite think, but now and again there is some and my feeling is that where it exists it is the duty of the Colonial Office to stamp it out. If British citizenship means anything at all, there must be no colour bar at home or abroad. Let it not be thought that colour prejudice is confined only to...

Empty Homes (16 May 2002)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: .... In the short time left, I shall ask the Government to consider a number of issues. It is all very well levering in more public sector money, but the Government are taking in significantly more in stamp duty than they did when they came to power—some £7 billion a year more is going to the Exchequer. Surely, a larger fraction of that could be recycled into the housing sector. What is...

Sport and Recreation (9 Jul 1984)

Mr Colin Moynihan: ...more young people on our governing bodies. Men and women who will retire after this year's Olympics should be urged to participate at the top level of sports administration: in fact, there is a duty on them so to do. The world of sport has given much to them in personal satisfaction and support, and the least they can do, having received so much, is to give a little back. Tomorrow's...

Opposition Day — [9th Allotted Day]: Ash Dieback Disease (12 Nov 2012)

Tom Harris: ...a neighbour’s house and responding by writing a stern and urgent letter to the local police to ask their opinion on local crime-prevention initiatives, and then posting it with a second-class stamp. Of course, the current Secretary of State cannot be held entirely to blame for his Department’s peculiar reluctance to act when it should have done so seven months ago. [Interruption.] The...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: Police Complaints (Reform) (27 Oct 1981)

Mr Alfred Dubs: ...does not have an "independent" element in the full sense of the word. The board considers reports of investigations and recommendations by the police. The effect of the board's work is to rubber-stamp the police reports. That is evidenced by the fact that in 1979 the board referred the report back to the police for more information in only 31 instances. The figure increased to 110 in 1980....

New Clause 12: Calculation of Contributions (19 Apr 1985)

Sir Brandon Rhys Williams: ...in the new clause. It is wrong that this new clause should have been presented in this way. The provisions contained in it should have appeared before us in a separate Bill. Parliament has a duty to consider what the Executive are proposing for the taxation of individuals. The new clause will apply to virtually the entire population at one time or another; and yet we shall let it pass...

Economy: Spring Statement - Motion to Take Note (15 Mar 2018)

Lord Bates: .... Next month, working families will see another increase in their personal tax allowance, inflation-busting increases in the national minimum wage and the national living wage, and a freeze on fuel duty. I turn now to the specific OBR forecasts. The OBR delivered its second report of the fiscal year 2017-18 on Tuesday. It points to the fact that the economy grew by 1.7% in 2017, compared...

Backbench Business — Death Penalty (India): Kurdish Genocide (28 Feb 2013)

Alistair Burt: ...that any use of chemical or biological weapons is abhorrent and that responsible countries consider their ongoing production, stockpiling or use to be completely unacceptable. It is our moral duty to join the international community in its efforts to prevent future atrocities. We will continue to call, at every opportunity, for all countries to respect minority rights and for the full...

Orders of the Day — New Clause. — (Duties of Chairman of Communications Company.) (10 Dec 1928)

Mr Edward Grenfell: .... We have only to consider the people who have been advising the Government in this matter, and in all matters of difficulty; whether it is Sir William McLintock, Sir Otto Niemeyer, or Sir Josiah Stamp. Many of these men have overworked themselves for no reward at all under a sense of public duty. When the Government have been in a difficulty it has appointed a Royal Commission or a Select...

Orders of the Day — Shops Bill (20 Feb 1981)

Mr Timothy Raison: .... Friend say that he had not just taken over a Bill from the Consumers Association; the association had helped him, it had provided a framework, as I understand it, but he has imposed his personal stamp upon the Bill—and quite right, too. However, brave attempt though it is, I think that it may be an over-simple one to deal with what is inevitably a rather complex subject, and one with a...
