TREASURY – LOAN CHARGE – 24 March 2020

Dr Julian Lewis: Will Ministers consider suspending the application of the loan charge for the period of this emergency, thus stopping the hounding of the self-employed people who were the subject of an important debate in this place last week?

[The Chief Secretary to the Treasury (Steve Barclay): I can provide a degree of reassurance to my right hon. Friend that the self-assessment has been deferred from July to August. That is one of the areas where the Chancellor has taken action to address concerns.]
