Orders of the Day — The Economy and Pensions — 14 Nov 2007 at 18:45

John Gummer MP, Suffolk Coastal voted in the minority (Aye).

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 fails to set out a clear vision on the future of economic policy, contains no measures to develop Britain's competitiveness, includes proposals that will damage enterprise, and does not contain any measures to reduce youth unemployment and to make significant inroads into the number of people on benefits who could work; condemn the absence of measures to ensure real improvements in the public services to give people power over their lives and generate 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:-

The House divided: Ayes 240, Noes 309.
