Last week I attended the House of Lords to listen to The Queen’s Speech. Widely watched primarily for the pageantry of the State Opening of Parliament, the Queen’s Speech is important in itself for outlining the Government’s programme for the next 12 months. Wherever else political debate may stray, the focus of the legislation we debate in Parliament will be on measures to build a stronger economy and a fairer society.

David Cameron’s trip to India appears to have gone well. In truth we’re now supplicants to this fledgling world power and can hope that the better parts of our shared history and the presence of many people of Indian heritage in the UK will assist in forging a special relationship that will be mutually beneficial.

It has been heartening to see the coverage of the new Wiltshire Council market being opened in Trowbridge and, as a Wiltshire Council market trader of long standing, I wish it every success. New markets are needed in these straitened times and it is only right that stallholders at new markets are offered special reduced rates. − Name and address suppliedRents rising on quiet »
I have an office in the small trading estate at the top of Westwells Road, Hawthorn Hill, near Rudloe, in Corsham. Traffic flow on Hawthorn Hill – and, as a consequence, office access – is currently in a state of chaos, thanks to work being carried out by Bardon Constructing. − Geoff Fry, NestonOver by Christmas »
