However, if APD is forcing companies out of business, then at some point the costs of redundancy and unemployment benefit more than outweighs any income.
Good point, but at what point? I'm guessing that a large proportion of those costs are borne by the private sector. The government, like any government, will have about as much foresight as a snail crossing the M25 in the rush hour, and won't be thinking long term!
