21 November 2014

The Government chose The National Freelancers Day to announce the appointment of David Morris MP as their Self-Employed Ambassador.

David Morris MP, a self-employed businessman himself, is quoted as saying:

‘It was an honour to be appointed as the Governments self-employed ambassador by the Prime Minister. As a self-employed businessman myself, for nearly 30 years before I came into Parliament I know only too well how Government’s policy effects those who are self-employed.

 I believe our self-employed and small businessmen are the lifeblood for the economic recovery and believe that stripping back the burden of red tape and taxation will allow freelancers to flourish”.
