Morecambe and Lunesdale MP David Morris MP has been re-appointed as the Government’s Self Employment Ambassador.

Speaking after it was confirmed he would be resuming the role Mr Morris said: “As a self-employed businessman for many years before being elected to Parliament I know only too well how complicated legislation can burden businesses and over the last six to eight months in the post

“I have enjoyed speaking to business both in my own constituency and nationwide about how the Government can help their business thrive.

“I look forward to continuing to work with the Association of Independent Professionals and the Self Employed and other bodies who represent the self-employed to come up with new ideas in the coming months. One of the things I would especially like to tackle is (taxation legislation) IR35 which has always been unnecessarily complicated.”
