LONDON (Reuters) – Britain’s Queen Elizabeth set out the government’s “levelling up” agenda on Tuesday, outlining Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s focus on boosting investment in infrastructure, healthcare and green technology to create more post-COVID jobs.

At a ceremony stripped back because of the pandemic, the Queen, who wore a day dress and hat instead of the usual robes and crown, read out the legislation the government hopes to pass during the next year.

“My government’s priority is to deliver a national recovery from the pandemic that makes the United Kingdom`stronger, healthier and more prosperous that before,” the Queen told parliament.

“To achieve this, my government will level up opportunities across all parts of the United Kingdom, supporting jobs, businesses and economic growth and addressing the impact of the pandemic on public services.”
