HC Deb 23 May 1898 vol 58 c403
MR. MCKENNA (Monmouth, N.)

I beg to ask the Attorney General whether stamp duty is payable on an award under the Workmen's Compensation Act; and, if so, whether there is any power to remit that duty without an express enactment by Parliament?


The answer to the Question may depend upon the procedure which is adopted under the schedule. I do not think that any universal rule can be laid down. If stamp duty should be held payable, in any case, express enactment will be required to obtain exemption.
