Nicholas Boys Smith to be ‘interim chair’ of Beauty Commission
Create Streets director Nicholas Boys Smith has been named interim chair of the government’s Building Beautiful Commission.
Housing secretary James Brokenshire made the announcement in an interview on LBC in which he said he regretted the way Roger Scruton was sacked.
He was challenged by interviewer Iain Dale over the handling of the affair which followed a piece in the New Statesman in which Scruton appeared to repeat controversial remarks he had made about a “Soros empire” in Hungary and a “sudden invasion of huge tribes of Muslims”.
