Fiscal rules - A new 35% of GDP public spending target by 2020

3.

Taxation - Remove the 50% top rate of income tax

4.

Taxation - Extended corporation tax cuts to 15% by 2020

5.

EU policy - Use future Treaty and/or budget negotiations to repatriate key employment powers

6.

Infrastructure - Ring-fence transport, energy and ITC infrastructure spending

7.

Energy policy - Do no harm - don’t sacrifice UK competitiveness for green credentials

8.

Education - Further expand free school provision with profit incentives

9.

Taxation - End the £100,000 personal allowance anomaly

10.

Competition policy - Intensify competition policy both domestically and within the EU

11.

Regulation policy -  Radical civil service reforms to promote de-regulation

12.

Employment Law - Nine major changes to free up the labour market

13.

Planning - Incremental ‘Green Belt’ and developer rights to propose, and reduce political influence over infrastructure planning

14.

Public sector performances - Greater decentralisation of public sector pay

15.

Public sector performances - No watering down of reforms to unfunded public sector pensions

 

The IoD claims that if its suggestions are adopted by the government, it could make the UK one of the most advanced economies in the world.
