The Chancellor pointed out that the...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 45 - Contract and conveyance: (3 Jun 2003)

George Osborne: As my hon. Friend has just eloquently explained, clause 45 gets to the nub of whether stamp duty land tax is, as the Government claim, a device for stopping tax avoidance, or a new stealth tax.

Friend pointed out, an extraordinary one given that they mistakenly abolished part...

Dawn Primarolo: On the hon. Gentleman's other points, stamp duty, stamp duty land tax and stamp duty reserve tax cannot be removed.

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 214 - Health service bodies (26 Jun 2012)

John Pugh: I will detain the Committee just a little bit longer. The clause exempts NHS bodies from stamp duty when they purchase land and buildings, which is a good thing, and to some extent updates the legislation to take into account the reconfiguration of the health service that is being debated elsewhere, as the hon. Member for Easington will undoubtedly recall. However, the biggest property holder...
