If accepted it compels the government to introduce Regulations providing that "freelancers" and "self-employed people" should receive guaranteed earnings of:
(a) 80% of their monthly net earnings, averaged over the last three years; or,
(b) £2,917 per month
whichever is the lower.
This would bring self employed workers on a par with employees furloughed under the Job Retention Scheme.
