Business leaders and policy experts gave the coalition mixed feedback ahead of its mid-term review.
CBI director general John Cridland scored the Government eight out of 10 for its plan for the economy but just five out of 10 for delivery of the plan.
He told BBC Radio 4's World this Weekend:
Frankly, the Government's delivery has been disappointing if not sluggish. They are not getting on with house building, road building, rail building at the pace we would like.
Andrew Haldenby, director of think tank Reform, told the programme:
I would give the coalition no more than five out of 10 on public sector reform and the reason for that is the public sector is yet to be convinced that this Government really, really wants it to change.
