§ Mr. MALONE
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury how many separate transfers in connection with the sale of stocks and shares in joint stock companies in the United Kingdom were stamped for revenue purposes during the 12 months ended 31st December, 1929; of the total transfers stamped for revenue how many were special transfers whereby nominees were registered by companies for the nominal stamp duty of 10s. irrespective of the value of the shares; and what was the value of shares transferred to persons acting as nominees?
§ Mr. PETHICK-LAWRENCE
I regret that I am unable to furnish this information. The only particulars available in regard to the Stamp Duty on transfers are those published in the annual reports of the Commissioners of Inland Revenue, the latest figures of which will be found in the table on page 44 of the 72nd Report just published (Command Paper 3500).
