Julian welcomes Queen’s Speech 2015

May 28, 2015

Julian has welcomed yesterday’s Queen’s Speech, which included measures cut taxes for low-earners, increase health spending, and offer an in-out referendum on Britain’s membership of the European Union.

The Government’s legislative programme for the year ahead also set out measures that will boost employment, improve pensions, and rule out any rises in income tax, national insurance contributions, or VAT for the next five years. Measures to reform welfare, control immigration, protect essential public services against strikes, and implement a system of English Votes for English Laws were also outlined by the Queen. The Government’s commitment to a more balanced economy, with devolved powers for a Northern Powerhouse were also reaffirmed.

Commenting on the proposals, Julian said “I am delighted that the first majority Conservative Queen’s Speech in almost twenty years has focused on tax cuts for low earners, increased spending on our National Health Service, and protecting state pensions. I am also pleased that York Outer residents will finally be able to vote on whether they wish to remain part of the European Union, for which I have been campaigning for a number of years.

“However, as with any proposed legislation, it’s the details that really matter and I will be scrutinising the Government’s proposals carefully when they come before the House of Commons. I will also continue to campaign for the long overdue reform of the way in which health funding is allocated as York and North Yorkshire still receive disproportionately less funding than should be the case.”
