HC Deb 12 February 1953 vol 511 c52W
Mr. C. I. Orr-Ewing

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the revenue in the financial years 1949-50 and 1950-51 from stamp duty on the sale of houses valued at f2,500 and under.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

I regret that this information is not available. The yield of stamp duty in respect of conveyances on sale of lands and houses where the consideration did not exceedf1,500 was f2,128,000 in 1949-50 and f2,167,000 in 1950-51, but no records are kept which would enable a division to be made at any other point.
