Queen’s Speech is threadbare

Despite all the challenges our great country faces, the Tories’ Queen’s Speech is a threadbare document from a weakened government. 

It shows that the Prime Minister is unable to put together a proper programme for the change our country so desperately needs.

Labour would bring forward a Queen’s Speech to offer the people of Britain hope. 

With a bold vision to build a Britain for the many not the few, we would invest in an economy that puts working people first; guarantee patients are seen in A&E within four hours and take one million people off waiting lists; give schools the resources they need to ensure every single child has the best start in life; and put more bobbies on the beat to keep our communities safe.

Stephen Morgan MP said:

“The Tories record in government is one of falling living standards and a crisis in our public services. 

I am hugely disappointed by this lightweight Queen’s Speech. Enough is enough.

Labour would have addressed the big challenges our country faces head on offering a programme based on hope and opportunity for all. That’s what the people of Portsmouth deserve”.
