Economy — Debate (5 Feb 2009)

Lord Northbrook: .... What signal does this give to that vital sector of our economy, the smaller business? Our party is offering positive measures: it would help those trying to get on to the property ladder with a stamp duty holiday for first-time buyers on house purchases of up to £250,000; it would help old-age pensioners, as suggested by the noble Lord, Lord Eatwell, by increasing their tax allowance;...

Orders of the Day — San Remo Conference.: Profiteering (Amendment) Bill. (29 Apr 1920)

Mr Noel Billing: ...Bill a year ago what would be the result, and it has proved to be substantially true. The various Committees which have been set up to administer the Profiteering Act have not even paid their stamp duties with their fines. They have not paid their postage with the fines they have inflicted. I do not know of any case where imprisonment has been imposed. I wonder how many hon. members really...

Football (Disorder) Bill (20 Jul 2000)

Lord McNally: ...on youth in particular and on society at large, both nationally and internationally. Its potential for good, if properly run in all its aspects, is immense, and so none of us denies the need to stamp out the so-called yob culture which has attached itself to the game. Our doubts rest in the Government's haste in bringing this legislation before Parliament. We are told that the Government...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Budget (No. 3) Bill: Final Stage (10 Nov 2020)

Paul Frew: ...a problem and pushed for it, and I thank him for that work. Surely he should see that there is a democratic deficit in the way in which we do a Budget, because it is an excepted matter. There is a duty on the Finance Minister to provide a Budget to this Assembly, and that is it. There is so much more that the Assembly needs to see on budgetary and financial matters, however. I am talking...

(30 Jun 2016)

Will Quince: ...forcing it to do otherwise. Fees at the moment are reasonable and offer customers good value for money, but let us be clear that property transactions are expensive when we include legal fees, stamp duty, search fees and moving costs. The current scope of the Land Registry’s work is limited by its direct link to the property market, meaning that there are limited options for a private...

Simplification of Government and Reduction of Taxation (9 Jun 1967)

Mr John Smith: ...in absolute terms, but whereas, in the past, the whole cost fell on the Revenue, now some of the cost falls on the economy. P.A.Y.E. is an obvious example, and there are other examples, such as the Stamp Duty on cheques. I feel that when assessing the worth of a tax, regard ought to be paid to the cost to the economy of collecting it. In a bank there are people whose job it is to discover...

Immigration and Race Relations (6 Dec 1973)

Mr John Fraser: ...the disease is aimed at—if one can aim a disease—but all inside our community. Race relations concern 1½ million coloured people in the United Kingdom, their dignity, their rights and their duties as citizens, their hopes and expectations in what is a closely-knit and interdependent society. Just because we are an interdependent and a largely urban society, race relations are not...

International Organisations Bill [HL] (7 Feb 2005)

Localism Bill — Report (7th Day) (17 Oct 2011)

Lord Jenkin of Roding: .... It occurs where the value of the land is so high that it is cheaper to carry out an expensive excavation downwards than to move into a larger house, on which of course there is now the extra stamp duty. That is what is driving it. It is a function of the value of land. Perhaps I may give an indication. A very old friend of mine, a distinguished former ambassador-he and his wife are now...

Access To Medical Treatments (Innovation) Bill: New Clause 1 — Action plan for an off-patent drug pathway (29 Jan 2016)

Chris Heaton-Harris: ...of State to seek licences for off-patent drugs in their new purposes. As the Government stated at the time, as the licensing authority in the UK, the Secretary of State cannot take up such a duty. However, that does not mean that a similar end result of increasing the use of such drugs cannot be achieved by other means. I very much hope that we can do so through this Bill. Breakthroughs in...

Serious Crime Bill [HL] — Report (1st Day) (14 Oct 2014)

Lord Bates: ...evidence into the policy process. I will set out what we are doing in response in my remarks. We can all agree that child sexual exploitation is a horrendous crime; the Government are determined to stamp it out. We have seen this from the dreadful events in Rotherham, as highlighted by Professor Alexis Jay’s report, where there were appalling failures by the council, the police and other...

Urban White Paper (16 Nov 2000)

Lord Whitty: ...week provides a targeted rather than blanket favouring of developments and conversions within urban areas. The combination of measures introduced in the Pre-Budget Statement--the exemption from stamp duty, the accelerated payable tax credits, the 100 per cent allowance for creating flats over shops for letting and the package of VAT reforms to encourage additional conversions--is a much...

Poverty in the Developing World — Debate (28 Apr 2011)

Baroness Kinnock of Holyhead: ...backing the idea of a tax that ensures that financial services make a contribution to the cost of recovery from the banking crisis. Global agreement on such a tax would be best, but the UK's stamp duty demonstrates that it is possible to introduce a successful, well designed financial transaction tax without undermining competitiveness. According to experts, a levy, even at the very low...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Ways and Means — Financial Statement (24 Mar 2010)

Alistair Darling: .... I am also determined to do more to help families take that first crucial step on the housing ladder. We have introduced new help through shared equity schemes, and in 2008 we also brought in a stamp duty holiday on all transactions under £175,000, which ended in December. By helping 260,000 home buyers, it supported the entire housing market when it needed it most. The housing market is...

Orders of the Day — Enterprise Bill — [2nd Allotted Day]: Schedule 13 — Listed Directives (17 Jun 2002)

Nigel Waterson: ...other abuses that we debated in Committee. In Committee I tabled amendments Nos. 46 and 47, which were subtly different from these amendments but were part of the attempt to establish a general duty not to trade unfairly. As I think I conceded at the time, the terms of those amendments were quite wide; that is why we have now tabled amendments Nos. 195 and 196. We must strike a balance...

European Community Documents: Post Office (25 Jun 1990)

Eric Forth: ...forefront of the development of global postal services. It is especially appropriate at this time to mention, as an example of that tradition of innovation, the introduction of the adhesive postage stamp and with it the universal delivery and single tarriff postal system, which were introduced in Britain by Rowland Hill 150 years ago and which are now taken for granted throughout the...

...he is thought ill of or thought little of by the com- munity generally, but that he is a man who can be looked up to, is a man whose opinion is valued, and is a man who can be trusted to do his duty. Consumption is an extremely difficult disease to diagnose in its early stages, and so the Ministry have supplemented the panel doctor by a tuberculosis officer, who is expert in the diagnosis...

Orders of the Day — Ex-Servicemen (Retail Business Licences) (5 Nov 1945)

Mr Ellis Smith: ...is used in one sense in which it could be interpreted I think we had better not be drawn into it. The war has not been over very long, and there are still millions who have not returned. We have a duty to those millions, because the Coalition Government made promises to them and, as far as we are concerned, we are going to keep those promises for a change. The hon. Gentleman referred to...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (4th Day) (10 Jun 2014)

Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth: ...in that Bill. This is an important piece of legislation that will contribute to the economy. It provides for a measure of taxation for the National Assembly for Wales in terms of landfill, stamp duty land tax, income tax subject to a referendum, and a measure of borrowing. No doubt we will have to revisit some of that after the Scottish referendum in terms of the way it works across the...
