Matthew Taylor, blasted the discount-seekers as not “good citizens” amid claims they are contributing to the huge £6 billion tax avoidance bill.

After he was commissioned to review working practices he found in his report that digital transactions would make it easier for the taxman to ensure the self-employed workers are declaring their earnings.

Mr Taylor told the Telegraph: “If you are deliberately paying in cash because you know that you are getting a lower price because the person you are giving cash to is not paying their proper taxes, well that’s not good citizenship.

“Good citizens should want a tax system that is fair and one of the reasons for that is because some of the people who complain most vociferously about people who work in the informal economy are those who work formally.

“If you are a window cleaner and you are paying your taxes and doing the right thing and there is someone up the road who is able to undercut you because they are not, you are not very happy with it.”

Mr Taylor also proposed a policy which could see migrants barred from accepting cash payments, as part of their conditions which would allow them to work in the UK.

    Here we go…The push for a cashless society!

    How have these fascists got the brass neck to whinge about people not paying tax on a couple of quid cash in hand?

    They are systematically stripping the country of every asset, and depositing the proceeds in offshore accounts, to avoid paying billions in tax.

    Even the blood we freely donate to save lives, has been sold to America, and re-sold on to China, for a profit. How on earth can that slimeball Hunt get away with this?
