Queen’s Speech

The PMS informed journalists that the Cabinet had discussed a draft legislative programme for the next session of Parliament. This programme would prioritise legislation essential for deficit reduction and take account of particular priorities under the Coalition agreement, including growth.

The programme had already been discussed by the relevant Cabinet committee and by the Coalition Committee the PMS said, and this was a chance for the full Cabinet to give their views on which bills should be included.

Asked if he could give an idea of what bills would be included in the Queen’s Speech or the date of the Speech, the PMS said he could not pre-empt the contents and had nothing to add to comments made by George Young in the House of Commons that the Speech would be in the Spring.
