My Lords, does my noble friend accept that the large reduction in the number of people in this country who are self-employed is a direct consequence of the Government’s introduction of IR35 legislation, which has led to huge confusion among the self-employed?

Does she really think that the Inland Revenue, or HMRC as it is now, can provide a proper service with so many of its people working from home?
