Autumn Statement: Osborne reveals stamp duty reforms
George Osborne has said stamp duty will be cut for 98% of homebuyers in his Autumn Statement to the Commons.
The Chancellor said that from midnight, the current system, where the amount owed jumps at each threshold level, would be replaced by a graduated rate, working in a similar way to income tax.
