§ 33. Sir F. Medlicott
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if, in order to assist those desiring to purchase houses for their own occupation, he will now consider the abolition of Stamp Duty on mortgages.
§ Sir F. Medlicott
Is not there a slight inconsistency in the present situation? Since conveyances and transfers of up to £3,500 have been exempted, is not there an even stronger case for exempting mortgages as well?
As my hon. Friend knows, conveyances and mortgages are two different things, but I will note the suggestion he has made.
