During the State Opening of Parliament the Queen said: "My Government's first priority is to strengthen Britain's economic competitiveness To this end it will support the growth of the private sector and the creation of more jobs and opportunities.
"My ministers will continue to prioritise measures that reduce the deficit ensuring interest rates are kept low for homeowners and businesses.
"My Government is committed to building an economy where people who work hard are properly rewarded."
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.
