We must not abandon our responsibilities and let irreplaceable historic sites be viewed as little more than obstacles to progress.
Alberto Costa: There are too many barriers to Britishness. Post-Brexit, it’s time for a more welcoming citizenship policy.
A positive agenda would encourage those whom we are now seeking to attract to take that extra step.
Matt Kilcoyne: A wealth tax is a bad idea at the best of times – let alone in the aftermath of a pandemic

Philip Davies: Our frontline staff are vital to our economic recovery, and we must do more to support them.
Research indicates that over half of customer-facing staff have experienced abuse from customers since the pandemic began.
£3 trillion is £100,000 per household – we could have to spend double that. A switch to a command economy would also mean losing our freedom.
When so many are cynical about politicians, it was brilliant to see Conservative colleagues committing the Government to decisive action.
Desmond Swayne: Same old Assisted Dying plan, same old unresolved problem – that it would put the vulnerable at risk
