Scottish Secretary responds to Queen’s Speech

Scottish Secretary Alister Jack said:

This is a Queen’s Speech which delivers for Scotland and the whole of the UK.

Measures in the Queen’s Speech will help us grow our economy, so we can continue to recover from the pandemic, tackle the rising cost of living and level up across the country.

We will bring in a range of measures to make our country safer, from tackling state-sponsored espionage, to cracking down on modern slavery.

We will show leadership with a series of ambitious reforms which will support citizens across the United Kingdom.

We will continue to maximise the benefits of Brexit with legislation to cement our fantastic trade deals with Australia and New Zealand, and remove outdated EU laws. Outside of the EU, the UK will continue to prosper and thrive.
