Stella Creasy, Labour and Cooperative MP for Walthamstow, says "I'm pleased to say we will be joined by Matthew Taylor of the Royal Society of Arts who is leading the Government review into self employment, so it is an ideal opportunity for any Walthamstow resident to contribute to his thinking on this issue too. 

"Self employed residents are not the only ones in our community facing economic problems in Walthamstow.

"​In May 2018 as many as 20,000 residents will be moved onto the Universal Credit, facing a reduction in income and complex paperwork.
