New Measures to Strengthen the Economy

James Brokenshire has given his backing to measures announced in the Queen' Speech to boost jobs and support growth in the economy. The Enterprise and Employment Bill announced in the Government's legislative programme will make Britain one of the most business-friendly countries in the world and the Banking Reform Bill that will clear up the regulatory mess and protect Britain's economy from the sort of risky activity that led to the recession.

Commenting James said:

"This is a Government taking the tough, long-term decisions to restore our country to strength. We are dealing with the deficit, rebalancing our economy and building a society that rewards people who work hard and do the right thing."
