Leader of the Labour Party Ed Miliband said he wanted to see a Queen's Speech that "responds to the deep problems that the country faces" such as unemployment and the "cost of living crisis" for families.
He added: "I feel on the evidence so far, this Queen's Speech is not up to the scale of the task that the country faces."
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.
