§ 15. Mr. Stoddart
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer when he intends to raise the exemption limit for stamp duty on house purchase.
§ Mr. Stoddart
I wish that the hon. and learned Gentleman would—especially on this issue. However, is the hon. and learned Gentleman aware that the stamp duty upper limit has not been increased for many years and is wildly out of date? It particularly affects those buying houses at a price of over £30,000. Will he consider the matter seriously and bring something forward in the budget?
