Opposition Day — [19th Allotted Day] — Tax Fairness (12 Mar 2013)

David Gauke: Let us be clear. One of the weaknesses in the tax system that we inherited was the fact that people were able to walk around the paying of stamp duty. On very valuable properties, it was all too easy for people to arrange their affairs thorough corporate vehicles and not pay stamp duty. In the last Budget this Government introduced measures that will deal with that enveloping and deal with...

Gentleman of what we have done through the ending of mortgage stamp duty last year, taking 96 per cent. of house purchases out of stamp duty this year, the Lord Chancellor's announcement of the ending of scale fees of solicitors for conveyancing, and the wide range of measures announced on 27th April by my right hon.

Housing and Planning Bill: What is a starter home? (3 May 2016)

James Cartlidge:, the hon. Member for Hornsey and Wood Green (Catherine West) mentioned the average deposit in London.

Opposition Day — [12th Allotted Day]: Housing (9 Jun 2009)

If the Minister is in the mood to do something for people, he should note that almost all first-time buyers—nine out of 10—could be exempted from stamp duty. That is another policy that he is welcome to borrow from us. He may know—if he does not, he will get his head around it very quickly—that, in a past Budget, the present Prime...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 31 - Tax treatment of financing costs and income (12 Jun 2012)

Cathy Jamieson: .... Friend is making a powerful case about what the general public would see as fair and reasonable. Does he, like me, welcome the fact that the Government are apparently going to take some action on stamp duty avoidance? If it is right to do it on the avoidance of stamp duty, it is also right to do it in the context of companies such as Vodafone.

Income Tax (Charge) (22 Nov 2017)

Jamie Stone: First-time buyers in my vast and remote constituency will absolutely welcome the abolition of stamp duty. Does the right hon. Gentleman agree with his colleague, the hon.

Anne Main: ...give powers back and not expect that to have an impact on the workings of this place.

Tax Changes: Effects (3 Feb 2000)

Lord Stoddart of Swindon: My Lords, the MIRAS system seems to have been phased out to the great benefit of the Treasury. However, the stamp duty on houses when they change hands has increased.

Mr Paul Boateng: Stamp duty land tax allows for fairer tax treatment of property purchases by individuals financed by certain types of alternative mortgage products.
