But these are not abuses. Generally IT contractors are cost more than permanent employees and genuinely do not want to be permies if only because they hated dealing with HR when they were in permanent employment.

Many of the major retail chains are seriously abusing the system, but, because they are paying minimum wage or less HMRC is not interested as there is little or no extra money for them.
