This is yet another betrayal of the self-employed – John McDonnell

John McDonnell MP, Labour’s Shadow Chancellor, responding to Philip Hammond scrapping the Government’s pledge to abolish Class 2 National Insurance contributions, said:

“This is yet another betrayal of the self-employed.

“These people are the engine of the economy and have been let down again, while giant corporations have seen their tax bills slashed. Few will ever trust Philip Hammond or the Tories again.”
