Queen’s Speech: Government to focus on ‘growing the economy’
BBC News says Boris Johnson has promised to get the country “back on track” as the government unveils its plans for the year ahead in the Queen’s Speech.
The speech will announce 38 bills including laws aimed at easing the cost of living and boosting economic growth.
Ministers will also recommit to tougher penalties for protest groups, like Insulate Britain and Extinction Rebellion, who use disruptive tactics.
Labour said the Tories were not up to the challenge of growing the economy.
A spokesperson for the party said the Conservative government had been responsible for low economic growth and high taxes.
