§ Sir HENRY KIMBER
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider the expediency of reducing the Stamp Duty on agreements for small tenancies, which under Section 75 of the Finance Act, 1910, is 10s. on a tenancy of 10s. a week or of £26 a year, or one whole week's rent, and which not only bears hardly on the poor but tends to defeat the 1896W revenue by inducing parties to dispense with signed agreements and adopt other means of recording the terms?
§ Mr. LLOYD GEORGE
I do not see my way to include in the forthcoming Finance Bill a proposal for the reduction in question.
