Civil Services and Revenue Departments Estimates, 1926-27.: Ministry of Health. (13 Jul 1926)

...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...

Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [HL] - Report (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 44 (21 Oct 2021)

Lord Addington: ..., there are lots of clever things you can do with technology nowadays that you could not do 10 or 20 years ago which mean that just about anybody can access it in any way they want to. This is a duty in higher education. Some might ask why I have tabled these amendments, as these two areas are different. I think it was the right reverend Prelate’s office which provided me with the fact...

[Mr. Joe Benton in the Chair] — Cashback Contracts (5 Mar 2008)

Malcolm Wicks: ...that we can provide. Regulation of the telecommunications market in the UK falls to the independent regulator, Ofcom, a statutory corporation set up under the Office of Communications Act 2002 with duties to further the interests of citizens in communications and relevant matters. Ofcom introduced the voluntary code of practice last July with the aim that consumers should be able to trust...

Public Expenditure (6 Mar 1984)

Mr Sean Hughes: ...as a decoy for what is essentially a political decision — the reordering of expenditure priorities. That is the nub of the argument. The Government are making financial leeway for abolishing stamp duty on security transactions but they cannot find the leeway to increase housing benefits. Three areas of expenditure are social security, education and housing. I make no apologies for...

Royal Assent (23 Mar 1972)

Mr David Ginsburg: ...Fund. He should have reduced and not increased the burden of national insurance on employers. There could have been—for an unorthodox man could consider some unorthodox ideas—a three-months' stamp-free holiday for employers of new employees. I would remind the House that Lord Beveridge always envisaged that at moments of high unemployment a greater burden of national insurance should...

Civil Estimates, 1933.: Ministry of Health. (7 Jul 1933)

Mr George Buchanan: ...who was within insurance at the age of 60 was at least safe for pension rights. But what is the actual position? It is that the person must have reached the age of 58½ on the date when the last stamp was affixed. Take the case of a person who has reached the age of 60 and who has been unemployed for two years. His age at the last affixing of a stamp was 58, not 58½, and the consequence...

Government: Legislative Programme (11 Jul 2007)

Lord Strathclyde: ...alter your Lordships' House? The Regulatory Enforcement and Sanctions Bill might be an ideal vehicle for the noble Lord, Lord Jones of Birmingham, whom we also welcome, for putting his deregulatory stamp on legislation and reducing the burdens on employers that have piled up in recent years. The whole House looks forward to his piloting of the Employment Simplification Bill, given the...

International Terrorism (4 Oct 2001)

Chris Grayling: ...condemn it, as would any right-minded citizen of this country. However, like many Islamic communities in this country, they fear what might happen to them in the aftermath. It is undoubtedly our duty, as leaders in our respective communities, to set an example to all the people whom we represent, and to show that we need to support the Islamic community in this country. It is not they who...

Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (24 May 2005)

Lord Palmer: ..., the vague reference mentioned on Tuesday by Her Majesty can only cause further concern for the way this country is governed. If the Prime Minister wishes your Lordships' House to be a rubber stamp, then there surely will be a strong case to abolish this House altogether. The noble Lord, Lord Strathclyde, reminded the House last week of the Irvine commitment, as, indeed, did the noble...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (16 Apr 1969)

Mr Jeremy Thorpe: ...or in part Corporation Tax? Why cannot we consider whether the present method of financing our social security is right or whether we could abolish, as I believe we can, the National Insurance stamp by a graduated social security tax? Why cannot we see whether a gifts tax is preferable and carry with it a radical reform of death duties? Could we not consider how it is possible to get a...

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Research Institutes, Wales (13 Nov 1957)

Mr Joseph Godber: ...have originated in various ways, but they have been worked now into a system co-ordinated by the Agricultural Research Council, which, by the Agricultural Research Act, 1956, is charged with the duty of organising agricultural research generally throughout Great Britain. Since the war, much has been done to extend agricultural research and fill up the gaps in it. We have a collection of...

Key Worker Housing (South-East) (19 Dec 2000)

Tim Loughton: ...been cut to such levels that in my local authority area of Adur, there is funding for just one such scheme in the current year. We need more homesteading proposals. We need proposals such as zero stamp duty on starter homes for young couples starting on the housing ladder. We must consider more imaginative solutions, as is already happening in certain parts of London, such as tax breaks...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 14. — (Charities, Superannuation Funds, and Other Special Cases.) (23 May 1962)

Mr Geoffrey Stevens: ...the investing public. Thirdly, and above all, any dodge or jiggery pokery of that sort would be expensive because there would be the cost of reforming the new company out of the ashes of the old, stamp duties, and so on, and the charges generally would almost certainly extinguish any possible tax advantage that might be gained. I do not think that the three safeguards I have mentioned...

Finance Bill (12 Sep 2017)

Robert Jenrick: ...in corporate taxes. Today, in almost every area, it has fallen dramatically. Corporate taxes for large companies have fallen by 50%, and for small companies by 40%. In house ownership, stamp duty has fallen by 40%. These are significant achievements. They have been hard won by measures such as the ones in this Budget—I am talking about complex measures produced by Treasury officials who...

Ways and Means — Financial Statement (20 Mar 2013)

George Osborne: ...to raise funds to help them grow. Many observers of the British tax system complain that it has long been biased towards debt financing over equity investment, so today I am abolishing altogether stamp duty on shares traded on growth markets such as AIM. In parts of Europe they are introducing a financial transaction tax; here in Britain we are getting rid of one. From April next year,...

Social Security (19 Jul 1984)

Mr Jeff Rooker: ...tax options, and woodland owners, of which the Chief Secretary is one. Even to individuals, well over £1 billion has been given to high-rate taxpayers. There have been tax handouts in respect of stamp duty, development land tax, corporation tax, and capital gains tax, and higher rate taxpayers have been given over £1 billion. But none has been given to the people we are discussing...

Pre-Budget Report (10 Dec 2003)

Oliver Letwin: ...us that he wants to simplify tax and regulation, but his actions contradict his words. If his announcements today were reality rather than rhetoric, why did he impose a fiendishly complex change in stamp duty land tax nine days ago? Why is he imposing 15 new regulations every working day? He has today announced that he will consider abolishing 147 regulations this year. Marvellous! At his...
