queens speech The Queen’s speech outlined a number of proposed laws for the last parliamentary session before next year’s general election. Amongst the proposals were:

  • Fiscal Responsibility Bill – making the promise to halve the budget deficit law.
  • Financial Services and Business Bill – clampdown on bonuses.
  • Policing Bill – adding more sex offenders to the national DNA register
  • Schools Bill – guaranteeing school standards and extra help for weaker students
