Our alternative Queen’s Speech

Britain faces big challenges. But this week, with his 'no answers' Queen's Speech, David Cameron has shown he's unable to bring about the change we need.

The Prime Minister promised change but things have got worse not better:

* Worse on jobs: with one million young people unemployed and more people out of work than when David Cameron became Prime Minister.
* Worse on growth and living standards: with the economy flatlining for two and a half years, and families paying the price with real wages down £1,700 since the election.
* Worse with the banks: with lending to businesses still falling.
* Worse with housing: with new housing starts falling and more families being left in the private rented sector with rising rents and too little security.
* Worse with family bills: with energy bills having risen by £300, while the profits of the energy companies have soared.

If Labour were in Government we would be acting to implement a One Nation programme with new ideas to begin turning Britain’s economy around.

One Nation Labour’s plans include:

* A Jobs Bill to put in place a Compulsory Jobs Guarantee.
* A Finance Bill that would kick-start our economy and help make work pay with a 10p rate of tax.
* A Consumers Bill to tackle rip-off energy bills and train fares.
* A Banking Bill that backs British business with a real British Investment Bank and new regional banks.
