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...

Cafcass: Banking (Asset Protection Scheme) (9 Mar 2009)

Philip Hammond: ...flowing again, requiring taxpayers to stump up hundreds of billions of pounds in further guarantees and capitalisations. The temporary VAT cut has failed to stimulate consumer spending and the stamp duty holiday has failed to stop house prices nosediving. The Government have made a plethora of announcements of support for business and home owners, many of which have been shown up as hollow...

Orders of the Day — Foreign Affairs (20 Dec 1965)

Mr Christopher Soames: ...and subversion which had been allowed to take a mounting toll of British and Arab lives. It is vital that the Government should demonstrate beyond doubt to all concerned that they are determined to stamp out terrorism and to carry out the policies agreed at the London conference in the summer of 1964. Given that and given the withdrawal of Egyptian troops from the Yemen, could it be that...

Orders of the Day — Emergency Powers Act, 1920 (Regulations).: Conference Proposal Accepted. (6 Apr 1921)

Commander Hon. Joseph Kenworthy: ...or in transport work or anything of that sort. I have no objection to the armed forces keeping order, if the police cannot do it. That is perfectly legitimate, and no Government would be doing its duty if it did not arrange it. But to put soldiers on in this way is utterly mischievous, and is likely to do more harm to the discipline of the Army and the Navy than the efforts of any of the...

Amendment of the Law: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (22 Mar 2007)

Michael Jack: ...bill for households, in 1997 the average household spend was 33.6 per cent. of income; now, it is 38.3 per cent. One can go on looking at other areas. For example, while house prices have doubled, stamp duty thresholds, with the exception of the lower band, have not changed. The revenue from that area has increased by a staggering 582 per cent. In terms of investment in the economy, the...

Secure Tenancies (Victims of Domestic Abuse) Bill [Lords] (19 Mar 2018)

Tony Lloyd: ...to me and my colleagues on the Opposition Front Bench so that we can ensure that we understand exactly the legal implications of the Bill. There is a recognition across the House that we have a duty not only to do everything we can to stamp out domestic abuse and violence—of course we must do that—but to recognise that stamping it out may be an ideal. There will still be victims, so we...

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Pensions. (25 Jun 1940)

Mr George Tomlinson: ...'s Fund in order to keep them in insurance, I want to point out that it is unnecessary. The position of the disabled ex-Service man is that if he is out of work and capable of working, he can get a stamp at the Employment Exchange which will retain him in insurance. If he is not disabled to the extent of being unable to work and wishes to retain National Health Insurance, then that frank...

National Health Service Contributions Bill and National Health Service Bill (Allocation of Time) (6 Mar 1961)

Mr Laurie Pavitt: ...deal today about Parliamentary procedure. The hon. Member for Middleton and Prestwich has said that people do not like the idea of Members doing an over-full day's work; of Members taking their duties so seriously that they feel it necessary, if need be, to sit here all night and return again at 10.30 the following morning for Standing Committee work. I very much resent the suggestion...

Prayers: Postal Deliveries (London) (29 Jun 1984)

Mr Clive Soley: ...are becoming worse all the time. In the past few days there has been a slight improvement in the quality of service in W12, but people are still receiving a third-class service for a first-class stamp. It is inexcusable that we should have allowed the postal service in the area to deteriorate to such an appalling state for so long. The Post Office's attitude has been poor. The kindest...

Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Bill: Report (4th Day) (14 Mar 2012)

Lord Martin of Springburn: ...has been mentioned many times tonight, and it sounds as though it is a commendable report. However, I put it to the noble Lord, Lord McNally, that we are not here just to take a report and rubber-stamp it. That would be easy. It has to be debated and thought through. It would be very easy for our democratic institutions if we just got a report and passed it through, saying, "It's a good...

Written Ministerial Statements — House of Lords: Turks and Caicos Islands (12 Jun 2012)

Lord Howell of Guildford: ...cash, land or other assets. Implementation of a new Crown land policy. The misappropriation of Crown land through questionable land allocations, underreporting of land values and the avoidance of stamp duty were at the heart of the corrupt practices described in the commission of inquiry report. The new Crown Land Ordinance which came into effect in March sets out clear criteria for the...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (EXPENSES ALLOWANCES, &c.) (29 Jun 1954)

Mr Douglas Houghton: ...Section shall prevent a claim being made under paragraph 7 of the Ninth Schedule of the Income Tax Act, 1952, in respect of any money expended wholly, exclusively and necessarily in performing the duties of the office or employment. That is to say, if a director or other person covered by those Sections received an expense allowance, he could ask for Income Tax relief on such amount of...

Orders of the Day — Position of Fishing Industry. (11 Mar 1924)

Sir Sidney Herbert: ...can afford to live. Owing again to the exchanges, the foreigner can buy gear at something like 35 per cent. or under what we have to pay in this country. Every other country in the world levies a duty upon British fish, whether fresh or dried fish, imported into that country. Those countries which had no duty before the War have imposed it now, and those countries which had a duty have...

Road Traffic Offences (26 Jul 1979)

Mr Peter Snape: .... The Home Office itself will provide expert evidence if PETA is challenged, but it is now virtually obsolete and many police forces are phasing it out. Its successors do not have the Home Office stamp of approval. Chief constables are free to order any type—two or three appear popular—but there is no Home Office evidence about their accuracy. If a motorist charged with speeding...

Written Ministerial Statements — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: The Turks and Caicos Islands (12 Jun 2012)

William Hague: ...cash, land or other assets. Implementation of a new Crown land policy The misappropriation of Crown land through questionable land allocations, under-reporting of land values and the avoidance of stamp duty were at the heart of the corrupt practices described in the Commission of Inquiry report. The new Crown Land Ordinance which came into effect in March sets out clear criteria for the...

Exports (3 May 1995)

Ken Purchase: ...pay-outs required by pensioners. That is the way to run pension funds. They have become nothing more than a means of share-dealing, with chopping and changing. It would be reasonable to reconsider stamp duty or a tax on investment churning, which I talked about earlier. We all know that it does not help British industry if it is in the grip of—in thrall to, as it were—people who have...

Orders of the Day — Iron and Steel Bill: Clause 5. (PROVISION OF PRODUCTION FACILITIES TO BE SUBJECT TO BOARD'S CONSENT IN CERTAIN CASES.) (11 Feb 1953)

Mr Gilbert Mitchison: ...) recognise the necessity of that, and I agree with his conclusion and his reasons for it. There can be no doubt that without notification of this kind the Board will be required to carry out its duties, as it were, with one arm tied behind its back the whole time. There is every reason in common sense. and having regard to the history of the industry, to have changes of this sort...

Homelessness Bill (12 Nov 2001)

Viscount Astor: ...over the past few years have improved the situation. The change in mortgage tax relief and discounts on the right to buy council houses has not helped; nor has the increase in the rate of stamp duty. The Government should also do more to encourage the building of houses for multiple occupation which help to provide very low-cost accommodation. I hope that the Minister will look into that....

People with Learning Disabilities (Abuse) (3 Sep 2012)

Paul Burstow: .... There is no place for such long-stay institutions detaining vulnerable people far away from home. Providers, commissioners, regulators and individual professionals all have a responsibility—a duty of care to those on whose behalf they commission services. Last year, in the wake of Winterbourne View, the CQC conducted 150 inspections of other services for people with learning...

Rail Review: Terms of Reference: Victims Strategy (11 Oct 2018)

Robert Buckland: ...crime. The hon. Member for Ashfield (Gloria De Piero) understandably pressed us to proceed more speedily with the introduction of a victims law. She rightly said that we need to get the statutory duties right; we need to get them embedded, and we need to provide that systematic approach. We have committed in our strategy to consult upon the introduction of such a law, but it is not just...
