We're ambitious for Britain to become the global go-to-place for scientists, innovators, and tech investors. We will continue to welcome the brightest and the best but can only do so by bring immigration down to sustainable levels overall so we maintain public faith in the system. Today, Britain has firms and researchers leading in some of the most exciting fields of human discovery.
We need to back them and turn research strengths into commercial success. My aim is not simply for the UK to have the lowest corporate tax rate in the G20. But also a tax system that is profoundly pro innovation. This is a comprehensive package designed to set us on the path to becoming one of the best places for research and development in the world.
