HC Deb 05 April 1927 vol 204 c1883
52. Sir F. NELSON

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the total amount of revenue derived from stamps on cheques during the financial years 1913–14 and 1925–26, respectively?


The net receipt in Great Britain of stamp duty from cheques was, for the year 1913–14, £1,225,200, and for the year 1925–26, £3,421,684.

Colonel DAY

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the revenue would be greatly increased if stamps on all receipts were insisted upon?


That is another question.
