“After decades of drift and dither this reforming government, this can-do government that got Brexit done, is getting the vaccine rollout done and is going to get social care done,” Johnson will say.

“We are dealing with the biggest underlying issues of our economy and society, the problems that no government has had the guts to tackle before.”

Johnson is attempting to sell his new economic vision for Britain, the post-Brexit economy.

This week the Government will end the £20 per week universal credit uplift that was brought to lower-income households during the pandemic.

Likewise, last month it was announced that there will be an extra tax to fund social care and the NHS in England.

“We are not going back to the same old broken model with low wages, low growth, low skills and low productivity, all of it enabled and assisted by uncontrolled immigration,” Johnson will say.

The system must work to “allow people of talent to come to this country, but not to use immigration as an excuse for failure to invest in people, in skills and in the equipment or machinery they need to do their jobs”.
