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...

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...
