HC Deb 28 October 1909 vol 12 cc1243-4

The Stamp Duties chargeable on marketable securities (other than Colonial Government securities) under paragraphs (1) (c), (3), and (4) of the heading "Marketable Security" in the First Schedule to the principal Act, and the Stamp Duty chargeable on marketable securities, share warrants, or stock certificates to bearer under Sub-section (1) of Section four of the Finance Act, 1899, shall be double those specified in the said Schedule or charged by the said Section, as the case may be.

Major COATES moved, after the word "Government" ["other than Colonial Government securities"], to insert the words "or Colonial Municipal."

I have reason to believe that the Chancellor of the Exchequer has been very kindly taking the matter into serious consideration since the matter was debated in Committee, and I am very hopeful that, having had it under consideration, he will see his way to accept the Amendment now proposed.


I accept the Amendment.

Words proposed there inserted in the Bill.
