Cherilyn Mackrory, MP for Truro and Falmouth, has welcomed the Queen’s Speech 2022 – setting out the Conservative Government’s legislative agenda to grow and strengthen the economy and help ease the cost of living for families across the UK.
The Queen’s Speech sets out how the Conservative 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.
This legislative agenda also builds on the Conservative Government’s commitment to fund our NHS and clear the Covid backlogs – investing a record £36 billion and recruiting an additional 27,000 nurses to provide the NHS with the funding and resources it needs.
“This was an ambitious Queen’s Speech, including a raft of new measures to tackle the cost of living, make our streets safer and build an affordable, secure energy supply.
I was particularly pleased this plan includes action tackle the most pressing issues in Truro and Falmouth head on. This includes addressing our urgent housing crisis and ensuring we level up coastal communities through investment in schools, green energy, and local infrastructure.
I look forward to working closely with the Government to ensure these 38 new Bills deliver a brighter future for Truro and Falmouth.”
