§ Mr. Woolas
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what plans he has to reduce the level of turnover for the 714c Certificate for self-employed builders in the construction industry scheme. 
§ Dawn Primarolo
The Government have no plans to reduce the turnover thresholds which determine whether a self-employed builder is eligible for a gross payment certificate under the new construction industry scheme. The thresholds were established after full consultation with the representative bodies from all sectors of the construction industry, who broadly support them.
