        Always getting calls about roles there.
        Not seen the roles on the Digital Marketplace before.

              Not all of them are from people on here and IPSE members, as you know like I do, most people in both groups are in IT and still working so don't talk about things like CIS and being put out of business in the 90s.

                Got this back from MP

                Dear Mr X

                Thank you for your email. I am aware of these rumours, but I would stress that that is all that they are at the moment. Unfortunately I, like you, will only find out what is in the Budget when it is read out in the Commons by the Chancellor but I would be deeply concerned about any measures which undermined or punished small businesses. There are various rumours circulation, from the extension of IR35 to private sectors, to the announcement of a consultation, to the tidying-up of some areas from the current position in the public sector with no move to the private sector. Expectations are that no changes, even if they announced, would come into force for a couple of years.

                Since my election I have worked hard to promote local SMEs, working closely with Business Gateway and other organisations, as East Ren has a particularly vibrant small and micro-enterprise community which we need to cultivate and help grow.

                As you set out, there are real concerns with the impact of extending out IR35 which business is understandably kicking back on.

                Whilst we will wait and see what is actually in the Budget, I would hope that if there measures which would, on any view, be detrimental to small business are announced they would be mitigated by a significant package of other forms of support.

                The Conservatives must continue to be the party that champions small and local business, and I will be uncomfortable with anything which goes against this.

                I will however pass your comments onto the Treasury team.

                Kind regards

                Paul

                  FT thinking he wont announce private sector roll out today...

                  Behind a paywall. Says the following:

                  The chancellor considered a controversial crackdown on bogus self-employment in the private sector, but he is thought to have concluded not to rush the move and that more public consultation is required.

                    Yeah, but a public consultation towards that end, which was always more likely. Implementation in 2018 was never likely, but that’s why they raise these trial balloons: to gauge pushback. It’s still coming...

                      As I commented elsewhere note how this almost now feels inevitable and not that bad compared to a month ago.

                      The binned VAT starting point change has made something that a month ago was awful now feel not as bad as it could have been
