Clause 22: Criteria for Determining Duty on Ordinary Licences (20 Apr 1972)

Mr Geoffrey Howe: ...for the two levels of duty. The provisions in Clause 27(2), which define a coin as meaning lawful currency, are taken from Section 5(15) of the Finance Act, 1969. Of course, in 1969 the old penny was lawful currency. The provisions in Clause 27(2) defining this fascinating object, described as a penny machine, are taken from Section 3(4) of the Finance Act, 1970. A penny machine in both...

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,...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Decimal Currency (17 Feb 1970)

Mr John Rodgers: Does not the hon. Gentleman think that a decimal system in which two pennies are worth one new penny and three pennies are worth e new penny is bound to lead to an increase in retail prices?

Health Services (Wiltshire) (26 Apr 2006)

James Gray: I am encouraged to hear that the Liberal Democrats are sticking by their one and only policy, namely a penny on this or a penny on that. It used to be a penny on income tax; it is now a penny on national insurance. They say, "Whatever your problems, when we form a Liberal Democrat Government, we will solve them."

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.

Clause 5: Gaming Machines (16 Jul 1969)

Mr Harold Lever: If it is the wish of the House, I shall deal with the Amendments separately. Amendment No. 6 introduces a definition of a penny machine. The definition is restricted to those machines which can be played once on the insertion of a penny piece. It does not apply to machines made playable on the insertion of a token's worth of a penny or machines which offer three goes for a sixpenny piece or...

Agriculture (Prices). (26 Jan 1944)

Mr Robert Hudson: It was not in respect of other things. We said that the farmers' costs had been increased by a penny and that we would put an extra penny into the total pool of the Milk Marketing Board. We directed the Milk Marketing Board to use.7 of that penny to correct the anomaly of freight charges, of which they had been complaining for months. Some hon. Members, among them, I think, my hon. and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (22 Oct 1987)

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...

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office: Two-tier Postal System (23 Jan 1969)

Sir Gerald Nabarro: Will the right hon. Gentleman give the House an assurance now, as we are on the point of changing over to decimal currency, that first-class mails will cost four new pennies, equal to 4·8 old pennies, and that he will not take conversion to decimal currency as an opportunity to raise the cost to five new pennies, equal to sixpence at present?

Orders of the Day — Clause 136 (17 Jul 1972)

Mr Keith Speed: the Clause to the product of a rate of ½p in the £, or such other amount as may be fixed by an order made by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State. Subsection (7) lays down how the penny rate, by reference to which this limit is determined, should be calculated. As subsection (7) now stands, this penny rate product is that which would be estimated by the rating...

Student Finance (25 Oct 2001)

Alistair Burt: ...the Liberal Democrats' room, there is a magic robot and they ask it a different question every time. "How can we pay for improvements to the health service?" Unerringly, the magic robot replies, "A penny on income tax." "How can we pay for improvements to schools?" "A penny on income tax." "How do we pay for improvements to our universities?" "A penny on income tax." The remarkable way in...

Bill Presented: Wales Bill (31 Mar 2014)

Geraint Davies: May I ask for clarification on something, because my right hon. Friend the Member for Neath (Mr Hain) talked about the levels up to the current rate? At a marginal tax rate of one extra penny, the gross value added in Wales is 70% that of the UK. My understanding is therefore that the extra penny charged locally in Wales would generate less income than an extra penny charged across the UK...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Aid Budget (14 Sep 2016)

James Wharton: ...of course be looked into in detail. If there are issues found to be arising, they will be addressed and tackled. The UK also believes in its commitment to helping the poorest in the world. Every penny spent on the purposes for which it is intended is a penny well spent. Any penny that goes missing is a life that may go unsaved.

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Vat: Gaming Machines (16 Jul 1975)

...2) In section 24 of that Act (holiday season licences) for paragraphs (a) and (b) there shall be substituted the following:— "(a) the licence shall be one which authorises the provision only of penny machines up to a number specified in the licence, or of twopenny machines up to number so specified, or of both penny and twopenny machines up to numbers respectively so specified;...

Clause 5. — (Functions of Board.) (21 Jun 1967)

Mr Patrick Jenkin: ...Bill to which no reference has been made, but which I think the Government might like to consider during the passage of the Bill through another place. I am referring to the use of the term "new penny". I am not sure that this is the right term to use, but the Chancellor, when he made his announcement in his mini-Budget speech at the beginning of March last year, showed a personal...

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office.: Penny Postage. (15 Feb 1937)

Mr George Tryon: The restoration of penny postage with a half-penny postcard would mean an immediate reduction of over £7,300,000 in the revenue from existing letter traffic and of about £800,000 in that from postcards—a total of about £8,100,000. This loss of revenue would probably be reduced by about £600,000, the estimated amount of the net profit on new traffic and on the...

Scottish Parliament written answers — Taxation: Taxation (23 Sep 2002)

Andy Kerr: ...Treasury publish an estimate of impact of the use of the Scottish Parliament’s tax varying powers each year in the Financial Statement and Budget Report. This year’s document states that a one penny change in the Scottish variable rate of income tax for 2002-03 could be worth approximately £230 million. Although in practice we would expect the revenue generated from a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: EU Regional Aid Programmes (30 Jun 2009)

Chris Bryant: I can make an absolute guarantee that not a single extra penny needed for match funding in the UK would be brought forward by this proposal, which has not yet been outlined in full detail by the European Commission. There would not be a single penny missing in relation to the European social fund, which, as the hon. Gentleman knows, has already delivered significant extra benefits in Cornwall...

Unemployment Insurance Act, 1985. (8 Apr 1936)

Mr Arthur Greenwood: ..., but I submit that £2,000,000 put directly into the pockets of the unemployed would have far more economic and social value. As for the workers, the employed worker is to have his contribution reduced by one penny per week. The right hon. Gentleman, quoting the report, referred to what this meant as a proportion of wages. I say that, however low wages are, one penny per week to the...
