CPS launches major new policy programme

05/11/2018 - 05/11/2018

On Monday 5 November, the Rt Hon Theresa May MP joined the Centre for Policy Studies to launch the first in a series of major new reports, ‘Make Work Pay: A New Agenda for Fairer Taxes’. The Prime Minister was generous in her praise of the CPS, and our Chairman Lord Saatchi, stating that our work is as necessary today as it was over 40 years ago and that it was ‘great to see the CPS going from strength to strength’. She added that ‘the new intellectual thought, the new thought about our politics and our future is all on the centre-right. We are the ones who are coming up with the ideas about how our society and our economy should be progressing’. She added: ‘It is so important that as we see what Jeremy Corbyn has done to the Labour Party, we are very clear that we cannot allow him to do that to our nation. And it is our duty as Conservatives to ensure that he never can.’ Lord Saatchi wrote about the CPS’s new policy agenda in the Daily Mail on Monday, and also appeared on the Today programme to discuss it. Robert Colvile, CPS Director, wrote about ‘Make Work Pay’ for the Sun and Times Red Box, and Tom Clougherty, Head of Tax and author of the report, outlined its central proposals on ConservativeHome.
