Queen's Speech 2008
The Queen has outlined the Government's priorities for the coming Parliamentary year in
the Queen's Speech following today's official state opening of Parliament.
The stability of the British economy in a period of economic downturn was highlighted as a key area for
Government action. Legislation will be introduced to strengthen the financial sector and protect businesses and
families through, for example, a Banking Bill and a Welfare Reform Bill.
The Queen said:
"My Government is committed to helping families and businesses through difficult times.
"The strength of the financial sector is vital to the future vibrancy of the economy. Therefore,
legislation will continue to be taken forward to ensure fairer and more secure protection for
bank depositors and to improve the resilience of the financial sector."
