HC Deb 12 July 1916 vol 84 c347W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequr whether stockbrokers have received instructions from the Treasury or the Inland Revenue to change their principals with Stamp Duty on sales of American securities direct to the Government; and, if so, whether this is in accordance with the promise given by the Government that the sales made at their request should take place free of any expense whatever to the vendor?


I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave to a question in the same terms on the 10th July. I am sending him a copy.
