Ellis Island, UK

Lord Desai

We are creating a New Britain, and so making a museum that records the stories of generations of newcomers to Britain is a significant step (News, last week). That is why I support the campaign to preserve the historic house at 19 Princelet Street as a monument to our immigration experience. It is our Ellis Island.
