Could freelancers lose home over loan charge?

Treasury Minster Mel Stride is asked why the government is pursuing people to repay tax over the loan charge scheme.

Some people face demands for thousands of pounds after the government closed a tax loophole.

Mr Stride said people will not be required to sell their primary residence to settle these tax bills, and he said it was "not retrospective" as the scheme had "never been compliant with our tax code".

Politics Live presenter Jo Coburn also spoke to BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg, Labour's Tony Lloyd and the SNP's Kirsty Blackman.
