Benefits of job agencies

Sir,

YOUR Agenda article by Peter Naylor (Construction News, December 4) regarding self-employment struck the right note.

It is time that there was more positive thinking towards self-employment and the operation of labour agencies.

For more than 25 years we've helped to organise floating labour - an intrinsic and large part of the industry - but always under the stigma of alleged avoidance of tax and National Insurance.

It is time there was a positive approach to the very real benefits of using reputable labour agencies.
