Principal contractors can be very small. From working in a small practice, I know that some of them can operate on a very small scale and would come under the RCT system, even if only for short periods sometimes.

I believe in probity and ensuring everything is right. A self-correcting period could be helpful. It would give people a little window of opportunity when making returns to say they made a genuine mistake.
