(2) what is the estimated number of taxpayers, in each fiscal years since 1979–80, who have been reclassified by the Inland Revenue as being in employment as opposed to self-employed;

(3) if he will take steps to clarify the distinction, for income tax purposes, between employment and self-employment.

Mr. Ridley

I shall let my hon. Friend have a reply as soon as possible.
