Tory scrapping of IR35 'just an idea'
No plans to adopt any proposals from think tank report
Speaking on the BBC’s Newsnight programme,
Hammond said the Tories considered the recommendations made by its economic
competitiveness policy group (led by former cabinet minister John Redwood) as
merely ‘good ideas’.
This is despite Redwood’s group spending the last 20 months outlining
business and tax policies for the Tory manifesto.
It is now the job of the shadow cabinet to decide which of the
recommendations from Redwood and his team should become official party policy.
