This petition was submitted by Paul Southard having collected a total of 53 signatures.
Text of Petition:
It is unfair that the WAG not follow suit as the rest of the UK on the stamp duty holiday announced by the chancellor on 8th July. At present the holiday only applies to first time buyers or those moving up the property chain in Wales. It would benefit the economy more for this holiday apply to prospective landlords, or families wanting to buy a holiday home, or other cases. In England a saving can be made of £15,000 whiles in Wales a maximum of £2,450. Why are we always the poor neighbour!!!
