    so we are only allowed to go to work if we can’t work from home, or we are only allowed to go to work if our work is essential?

    I don't believe there is a law in place from stopping you doing what the **** you want to if you so choose.

    I wonder if Screwfix (or any merchants) will still be able to open? If a customer has water pouring through their ceiling, it's okay ringing a plumber, but if he hasn't got the parts he needs in the van, what can he do?

    Remarkable times!

    He actually said you’re allowed “to travel to and from work, but only where this is absolutely necessary, and cannot be done from home”.

    I would say for the vast majority of the self employed people in the country expected to receive/survive on £94 odd a week as opposed to up to £2500 a month for all the PAYE’s, that leaving the house to work IS absolutely necessary.
