    Politics and Passion - Land Value Tax
    Thursday 8th March 2018

    Members and their guests are invited to a social evening at Sir Barnes Wallis at Ripley on Thursday March 8th at 7.30pm. Our guest will be William Davison, who will be speaking on the topic of Land Value Tax.

    William Davison will talk about Land Value Tax, a topic that has been central to Liberal thinking since the time of Lloyd George. Land Value Tax would provide the community with a share of the huge financial gains that can be made by simply owning land. It is especially relevant at a time when young people struggle to afford a home, and when wealth is so unfairly shared.
