Orders of the Day — Treasury and Work and Pensions — 27 Nov 2006 at 21:45
John Prescott MP, Kingston upon Hull East voted with the majority (No).
I beg to move, as an amendment to the Address, at the end of the Question to add:
'but humbly regret that the Gracious Speech does not contain measures to address Britain's declining productivity growth since 1997; deplore the absence of measures to give the UK the right skills to take advantage of new global opportunities; further regret the absence of strong and binding measures to tackle climate change and environmental degradation; condemn the absence of measures to ensure real improvements in the public services and greater value for money for taxpayers; and further regret the absence of measures in the Gracious Speech to tackle the pensions crisis to which Government policy has contributed.'.
Question put, That the amendment be made:-
