Meanwhile, Britain’s leading tax and spending think tank has said that Hunt’s promise to

 上海夜生活reduce corporation tax to the lowest rates in the advanced world would only “exacerbate” the UK’s financial problems.

The Institute for Fiscal Studies warned that his plans would mean a continuation of the u

 上海夜生活npopular Tory policy of austerity and would cost 13 billion pounds ($16.5 billion) a year.

The foreign secretary, Hunt, has proposed reducing the rate of corporation ta

x paid by companies to 12.5 percent, matching the rate in Ireland among the lowest of any major economy. 上海夜生活

The institute disputed the claims of some low-tax advocates that the policy would pay for itself by

上海夜生活driving up company investment and encouraging overseas companies to locate in Britain.

Paul Johnson, director of the IFS, said cutting corporation tax, and another promise made by Hun上海夜生活上海品茶

t to raise defense spending, would “leave no scope to relieve the pressure on other areas of pu

上海夜生活上海品茶blic spending without tax rises, or a fiscal stance which risked putting debt on a rising path”.

sman Eric Swalwell of California, author and activist Marianne Williamson, and entrepreneur Andrew Yang.

Both Conservative leadership contenders announced this week they will bring down the barriers to talented overseas workers.

Johnson said he would make the UK “much more open” to high-skilled migrants such as scientists, while Hunt promis

ed to scrap the immigration target of keeping net migration below 100,000, which has never been met.

Hunt said: “We’re not going to be a country that changes from Little Britain in

to Little England and pulls down the shutters and says ‘Foreigners not welcome’.”
