PCG to hold fringe meeting at Brighton Labour Party Conference Monday 1 October 2001 PDF Print The Professional Contractors Group will hold a fringe meeting at the Labour Party Conference in Brighton on Wednesday 3rd October to raise the issue of IR35 and other contracting matters with MPs. The format of the meeting will be for speakers: Tony McWalter- MP for Hemel Hempstead, Andy White- Founder of the PCG and Nigel Lockett of the Management School of Lancaster University to give a series of short talks, followed by a question and answer session from the floor. Philip Ross, PCG spokesman and organiser of the event, said: "The PCG is on a mission to explain and educate. To educate Government, all political parties and industry and commerce about the value and important contribution that freelancers, contractors, small businesses and the self-employed make to the economy. That is what we will be doing at the Labour Party conference and at our fringe meeting. "As an organisation one of our greatest concerns is that IT is too often perceived as being just the large manufacturers or consultancy companies, whereas in fact, we believe that it is the independent consultants that are the true dynamo of our knowledge economy." A buffet and refreshments will follow the meeting which will take place between 6:00pm- 8:00pm at The Walnut Suite in the Quality Hotel, West Street, Brighton.
