LONDON Elizabeth Regina II, the Queen of United Kingdom, in her first speech after the formation of coalition government on Tuesday announced plans to reform schools, police and Britains political system, saying the reforms are at the heart of the new govt. Speaking from her throne in the House of Lords, the Queen told assembled peers and MPs: My Governments legislative programme will be based upon the principles of freedom, fairness and responsibility. The speech also pledged: The first priority is to reduce the deficit and restore economic growth. David Camerons coalition Government launched its first legislative programme on Tuesday with flagship Bills on schools, political reform and a promise to scrap ID cards. There were few surprises in the widely-leaked programme of UKs first coalition administration since 1945. Measures were also promised to inject new private capital into the Royal Mail, put an annual cap on non-EU migrants, allow for elected sheriff-style police bosses, and create a dedicated Border Police Force. The Prime Minister made good his promise on voting reform, with a pledge to move to five-year fixed-term Parliaments and a referendum on moving to the Alternative Vote system for elections to the Commons. The Parliamentary Reform Bill will also remove the right of the Premier to decide the date of the next election, unless he can gain support of 55 per cent of MPs in a Commons vote. The Commons will still be able to kick out a government on a simple confidence motion. The next general election will be held on May 7, 2015, under these proposals. Tory plans to reduce the number of MPs and redraw boundaries will also be included. But House of Lords reform - a potential flashpoint - has been sidelined to a committee reporting back by the end of the year. The use of CCTV will be more tightly regulated and the Government promises to ensure anti-terror legislation 'strikes the right balance between protecting the public, strengthening social cohesion and protecting civil liberties. APP adds: The new British government is to work closely with Pakistan and other international partners for lasting security and stability in Afghanistan. Unveiling the first legislative programme of the coalition government, Queen Elizabeth told parliamentarians that the government would also undertake a full defence and strategic review in the coming months. She underlined the importance of fully supporting the British armed forces in Afghanistan, but at the same time said the government would be in constant touch with the neighbouring countries on securing peace and stability in the region.
