Finance Bill — Schedule 19 — Stamp Duty Land Tax: Commencement and Transitional Provisions — 1 Jul 2003 at 22:08

Mr Kenneth Clarke MP, Rushcliffe voted in the minority (No).

I beg to move, That the Bill be now read the Third time.

The Finance Bill has now benefited from scrutiny in Committee and on Report, and I should like to pay tribute to the work of all Members on both sides of the House who have contributed to what has been a thorough and good-humoured study of the Bill and its provisions. We have made considerable headway. A number of amendments were tabled that we felt able to accept, and they have undoubtedly played some part in improving the Bill during its passage.

Question put, That the Bill be read the Third time:-

The House divided: Ayes 285, Noes 175.
