Orders of the Day — BETTING AND GAMING DUTIES BILL [Lords] (10 Apr 1972)

Hon. Sam Silkin: I am obliged, Mr. Speaker, and I will seek to do that. Indeed, I had largely made the point. I had referred to the definition of a penny machine which, under the Bill, attracts the higher rate, whereas a machine which can only be played with one new penny or a half new penny attracts a lower rate, so that it follows that if, in addition to being able to use one new penny or a half new penny,...

Orders of the Day — Television Licence Fee (29 Jan 1979)

Mr Jeff Rooker: My hon. Friend referred to a penny on income tax. It should be made clear that less than a penny is involved. Those who hear our debates should not be given the figure of a penny, since that brings in about £ 500 million of revenue and we are talking about just over £ 300 million. That would require less than three-quarters of a penny on income tax.

Mrs Margaret Thatcher: The right hon. Gentleman is aware that when disasters come they rank under the Bellwin rules for help, provided that the local authority first bears the product of a penny rate. If the right hon. Gentleman is concerned that if we get another hurricane and local authorities have already spent the product of a penny rate, I can tell him that the Bellwin penny rate for emergencies lasts for the...
