The Government's plans for the next legislative period have been revealed in today's Queen's Speech.
Measures to kick-start the economy are central to the proposals which include reducing business regulation and giving shareholders more power – particularly on executive pay.
The Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill will "create the right conditions for economic recovery" and "reduce regulatory burdens and improve business and consumer confidence".
Meanwhile, the Energy Bill is designed to boost investment in low carbon energy and help increase security of supply.
Commenting on the legislation plans, John Cridland, CBI Director-General, said: "The test for this Queen’s Speech is whether it will help businesses to grow.
"Two Bills stand out for me: energy and regulatory reform. The first should help, but the jury’s out on the second."
