Who are the New Conservatives?

10 min listen

A group of 25 Tory MPs, calling themselves the New Conservatives, have launched a plan that they say will cut net migration from 606,000, last year’s figure, to 226,000, the figure in 2019. Temporary visa schemes for care workers should be shut, the ‘skilled work’ salary threshold raised, and the number of refugees accepted into the UK capped. Who is in the group, and what do they want? 

James Heale speaks to Isabel Hardman and Katy Balls.
