Stamp duty campaign boost


Brewin Dolphin Securities is putting its weight behind the e-petition to “stamp out stamp duty” by encouraging clients and employees to show their support.


The on-line petition, which is being co-ordinated by the Association of Private Client Investment Managers and Stockbrokers, will be sent to Chancellor Gordon Brown some time after the March budget.


Apcims says the petition is set to crack the 4,000 signature mark over the next few days.


Brewin Dolphin marketing director Charlotte Black says: “Because stamp duty costs the private investor we&#39re all enthusiastically signing up and encouraging our clients to write their MPs as well as petitioning the Chancellor.”
