Although I think I can understand the reasons behind the government pushing for all workers to be taxed on a PAYE basis (17 July, page 9), its failure to appreciate the implications is testimony to its inability to leave the construction industry alone

The public sector is bulging with red tape, wasted resources and money, yet the government is determined to focus on the private sector – another knee-jerk idea that flies in the face of the entrepreneurial ideals that it purports to promote.
