Iain Duncan Smith co-sponsors Bill to enable Kew Gardens to generate revenue from leasing land and buildings

30th January 2018

Iain Duncan Smith has co-sponsored a Private Member's Bill by Zac Goldsmith to enable the management of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, to lease land and buildings for a period of up to 150 years, rather than the restrictive 31 years currently permitted, and thereby ensure the Royal Botanic Gardens can generate revenue to support its work.

This paper sets out proposals to revise the immigration system and additionally in the annexe it makes the point that more information is required to fully understand the nature of where the costs fall and benefits exist. The information on much, if not all, of this is held by the government.
The central objective should be to ensure control over the movement of people. Using a combination of work permits and a cap we would look to control access to work and rights to settlement. Free movement for EU citizens for other purposes should be preserved.
