To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what representations he has received since 2 June about extending the moratorium on stamp duty.

Since I confirmed on 2 June that the temporary increase in the stamp duty threshold would not be extended beyond 19 August, we have received a number of representations for the duration of the moratorium to be reconsidered. My right hon. Friend the Chancellor made it clear at the outset that this was a temporary measure for eight months only, and we have no plans to reopen the matter.
