"ACTION THIS DAY: Ten things the Prime Minister can do for prosperity, right now"


Legatum Institute: March 2024: Report authored by Fred de Fossard

"This special briefing provides the Prime Minister with a defensive strategy to defend prosperity. Every suggestion proposed can be delivered quickly, through simple parliamentary means, and do not require primary legislation."

The proposals include:

  1. Cut immigration and restore trust in the immigration system 
  2. Scrap all non-financial reporting requirements on businesses 
  3. Remove the Public Sector Equality Duty 
  4. Scrap Stamp Duty 
  5. Scrap IR35 
  6. Increase the Higher Rate tax threshold 
  7. Facilitate housebuilding in London 
  8. Cut the regulatory cost of childcare 
  9. Remove more EU laws 
  10. Make all Arms-Length Bodies subject to Parliamentary control 

"If delivered with precision and speed, the Government will be able to craft a strong narrative that it is capable of pulling the levers of power in the interests of its voters. By implementing the proposals in this briefing, Ministers will be able to reduce migration and restore trust in Britain’s beleaguered immigration system; undo the damage of the “DEI complex” which has taken hold of public institutions; make Britain a better place to do business by cutting regulation; and make life easier for families by cutting taxes, building houses where they are needed most, and cutting the cost of childcare."
