Conservative Party tourism and hospitality manifesto commitments:
We will encourage the world to visit, study and do business in the UK through the GREAT Britain campaign and Visit Britain. We will continue our programme of strategic national investments including the expansion of Heathrow Airport.
Reform business rates, with more frequent revaluations. We will continue to support small businesses through business rate relief and low taxation. Increase the National Living Wage to 60% of median earnings by 2020.
Ensure people working in the 'gig' economy are properly protected.
Exit the European single market and customs union, but seek a "deep and special partnership" including comprehensive free trade and customs agreement.
Convert EU law into UK law and later allow parliament to pass legislation to "amend, repeal or improve" any piece of this. Seek to replicate all existing EU free trade agreements.
Support the ratification of trade agreements entered into during our EU membership.
Commitment to "bear down on immigration from outside the EU" across all visa routes Immigration cut to under 100,000. We will therefore ask the independent Migration Advisory Committee to make recommendations to the government about how the visa system can become better aligned with our modern industrial strategy.
We will double the Immigration Skills Charge levied on companies employing migrant workers, to £2,000 a year by the end of the parliament, using the revenue generated to invest in higher level skills training for workers in the UK.
Review rail ticketing to remove "complexity and perverse" pricing, with a passenger ombudsman introduced. Minimum service levels agreed with train companies and staff during times of industrial action. A pledge to make this mandatory if a deal cannot be reached voluntarily.
Focus on creating extra capacity on the railways to ease overcrowding, bring new lines and stations, and improve existing routes - including for freight.
Continue investment in High Speed 2, Northern Powerhouse Rail and the expansion of Heathrow Airport, while ensuring these projects develop the skills and careers of British workers.
We will help provide the skills and digital infrastructure that creative companies need and will seek to build upon the favourable tax arrangements that have helped them, including the highly successful creative industries tax credits scheme.
We will work to provide gigaspeed connectivity to as many businesses and homes as possible. We will introduce a full fibre connection voucher for companies across the country by 2018 and by 2022 we will have major fibre spines in over a hundred towns and cities, with ten million premises connected to full fibre and a clear path to national coverage over the next decade.
By 2022 we will extend mobile coverage further to 95 per cent geographic coverage of the UK. By the same date, all major roads and main line trains will enjoy full and uninterrupted mobile phone signal, alongside guaranteed WiFi internet service on all such trains.
We will maintain free entry to the permanent collections of our major national museums and galleries.
We shall produce a comprehensive 25 Year Environment Plan that will chart how we will improve our environment as we leave the European Union and take control of our environmental legislation again.
Students expected to leave the country at the end of their course unless they meet new "higher" requirements allowing them to stay. Overseas students to remain in the immigration statistics.
With devolution now established in London and other parts of England, we will consolidate our approach, providing clarity across England on what devolution means for different administrations so all authorities operate in a common framework.
We will support those authorities that wish to combine to serve their communities better. For combined authorities that are based around our great cities, we will continue to support the adoption of elected mayors, but we will not support them for the rural counties.
Cut corporation tax to 17% by 2020. Our system remains too complicated, making it hard for people – especially self-employed people and small businesses – to assess their taxes. We will therefore simplify the tax system.
Introduce a new cultural development fund to turn around communities. Hold a Great Exhibition of the North in 2018 to celebrate achievements in innovation, the arts and engineering
Support a UK city in making a bid to host the 2022 Commonwealth Games. We will continue our strong support for the arts, and ensure more of that support is based outside London.
We will also take steps to enhance the provision of public services in rural areas.
We will safeguard the post office network, to protect existing rural services and work with the Post Office to extend the availability of business and banking services to families and small businesses in rural areas.
A third of all SMEs in rural areas use their post office weekly and our ambition is that all routine small business and consumer banking services should be available in rural post offices. We will support pharmacies and village schools in rural areas.
Regulate more efficiently, saving £9bn through the Red Tape Challenge and the One-In-Two-Out Rule. We will continue to support small businesses by reducing the bureaucracy and regulation that prevents small businesses from flourishing.
