What impact will a points-based immigration system actually have? And what’s next for the National Theatre?

The government says its proposed points-based immigration system is “firm and fair”. Business leaders warn it’s “a disaster”. The Leader speaks to the Evening Standard’s Jonathan Prynn to find out what the plans actually involve, and what their true impact on the UK and its economy could be. Will events like Wimbledon really be hit by a shortage of workers?

The National Theatre's new season:

When National Theatre artistic director Rufus Norris was appointed, he made diversity his main goal. Now he’s confirmed he’ll do another five years in the job, Evening Standard arts editor Nancy Durrant looks at whether or not he’s achieved that. We also talk about the theatre’s new season, including the return of Small Island.
