Mansfield MP, Ben Bradley has welcomed the Queen’s Speech 2022 – setting out the Government’s legislative agenda to grow and strengthen the economy and help ease the cost of living for families across Mansfield and Warsop.
The Queen’s Speech sets out how the Government will seize Brexit freedoms to best grow the economy and support British business – creating the economic strength and prosperity needed to ease cost of living pressures and help people into high-skilled and well-paid jobs.
Measures set out to help grow the economy and boost living standards include, the landmark Levelling Up and Regeneration Bill, shifting power to local leaders to regenerate their towns and cities; the Energy Security Bill, delivering a more secure, homegrown and cheaper energy network; the Social Housing Regulation Bill, ensuring better quality homes meaning renters are not saddled with the cost and worry of unsafe homes; and the Schools Bill, raising standards for students, reforming funding and encouraging attendance.
The Government also set out how they will be using Brexit freedoms to grow and strengthen the economy, using the Brexit Freedoms Bill to give greater control over UK laws that best deliver for the British people.
Further Brexit freedoms includes the Financial Services and Markets Bill, enhancing the global leadership of the UK’s financial services sector, and the Trade (Australia and New Zealand) Bill, implementing new Free Trade Agreements as Global Britain.
The Queen’s Speech outlines how the Conservative Government is going further to cut crime with the promised Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill, which will bear down on criminals and kleptocrats who abuse our economy and the Public Order Bill that will give the police new powers to keep our street safer.
Commenting, Ben Bradley MP said:
“The Government has been clear from the start it will do everything in its power to build our economy and enact what people voted for in the 2019 election, and this Queen’s Speech delivers just that.
“The plans set out in the Queen’s Speech will strengthen our economy, bring more money to our towns and cities along with giving more powers to local leaders, allow us to deal with the most disruptive protestors and to help with the cost-of-living crisis.
“Importantly, the Queen’s Speech also outlines plans to unlock the Brexit freedoms that people voted for in the 2016 EU referendum. I am delighted the Government is doing this and I’m sure the people in Mansfield and Warsop agree”.
