HC Deb 09 April 1889 vol 335 c20
MR. MONTAGU (Tower Hamlets, Whitechapel)

I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will now state the amount of revenue derived from the recently imposed 1s. per cent stamp duty on bonds and shares to bearer, dividing the amount derived for the six months ending 31st December, 1889, and for the three months ending 31st March last, and whether he will give the same particulars with regard to the revenue derived from the 6d. stamp duty on brokers' contracts?


The question rather anticipates the statement I shall have to make when I bring forward my Budget proposals. When the time arrives I shall be very glad to give the information which the hon. Gentleman requires.
