Prime Minister David Cameron will acknowledges that the path to economic recover has been "tough" but will pledge to back the people of Britain "every step of the way" to make the nation great again. In a joint forward to today's speech, they will say:
In May 2010 we came together to govern in the national interest. We knew the road ahead would be tough and so it has proved to be. But three years on, our resolve to turn our country around has never been stronger.
We know that Britain can be great again because we've got the people to do it. Today's Queen's Speech shows that we will back them every step of the way. It is all about backing people who work hard and want to get on in life.
Nigel Farage said the focus on immigration and aspiration in the Queen's Speech showed that UKIP is "changing the UK national debate."
The Government has put new attempts to curb immigration at the heart of its agenda for the coming year, set out in today's Queen's Speech.
'Progress Please' probably best sums up business groups' polite but rather firm response to the Queen's speech.
