The lobby group No To Retro Tax has sent out a letter to its members thanking them for their support, reports ContractorUK.
Alastair Renshaw, campaign chairman for the group, also poured praise on Nigel Mills MP for sponsoring an amendment to the controversial Section 58 law which enabled the issue to be discussed in parliament.
He was also grateful to Robert Syms MP (Conservative), Jacob Rees-Mogg MP (Conservative), Fabian Hamilton MP (Labour) and Graeme Morrice MP (Labour) for their help.
“Regardless of the outcome of the Finance Bill Committee, the campaign continues to gain momentum. We are most grateful to everyone who has written to their MP or been to see them. If you have not already done so, please do immediately,” a segment of Mr Renshaw’s letter read.
“Every letter helps - we know that as a result of the large amount of correspondence MPs have received and the meetings that have been held, the House of Commons library has now produced a research paper to help MPs understand the background to Section 58.
“We are also aware that David Gauke has sought to brief MPs separately about the legislation, since his department has received so many enquiries about it.”
He also informed IT contractors that a complaint to the Parliamentary Ombudsman against the HMRC for maladministration has been made.
