HC Deb 20 June 1939 vol 348 c2048W
Mr. Poole

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is satisfied that in all cases where the Birmingham City Council Housing Department receive amounts of rent exceeding £2 they are paying the necessary Receipt Stamp Duty; and, if not, what action he proposes to take?

Sir J. Simon

I have no reason to suppose that the Birmingham City Council is unaware of its obligations in the matter of Receipt Stamp Duty. If, however, the hon. Member will send me the particulars of any specific case in which it is suggested that the requirements of the law have not been complied with I will have it looked into.
