Queen's Speech — Programme for Government — 8 Jun 2010 at 21:45

Kenneth Clarke MP, Rushcliffe voted to support the Government's programme as outlined in the Queen's Speech

The majority of MPs agreed: "That an humble Address be presented to Her Majesty, as follows:

Most Gracious Sovereign,

We, Your Majesty's most dutiful and loyal subjects, the Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Parliament assembled, beg leave to offer our humble thanks to Your Majesty for the Gracious Speech which Your Majesty has addressed to both Houses of Parliament.

"

This division followed a debate on the Liberal - Conservative Coalition's programme for government initial elements of which had been set out in summery form in The Queen's Speech.

Those voting to send the letter of thanks to the monarch can presumably be inferred to be supportive of the measures laid out the Queen's Speech.
