By tradition speeches from '.he throne are mellifluous and first readings are accordingly followed by further, and much more critical ones. It is invari- ably discoxered that too many paragraphs are devoted to the Vi-tiies and the Graces; a find- ing that occasions grave dis- tress to many nwniber-, es- pecially those to the left of Mr. Speaker. Even so. it will be very diffi- cult for the New Democrats, who hold the balance in the House, to cite this speech as reason for dismissing the gov- ernment. It may be that certain passages seem short on specif- irs and it does not come this year with a list of bills to be dealt with in Parliament. There is a high probability, however. [hat it contains enough of motherhood to satisfy Mr. Lewis for the present: a thought which may not have been ut- terly absent from liie minds of ministers. After agreeably full refer- ences to the Queen, the Com- monwealth and 1'Agence de Co-operation Culturelle, the speech touches on our aims inm.e of them controversial) in the talks on security and arms limitation: also on our hopes for reform of the inter- national monetary system and the Common Market (especially "After the congratulations ask them to send you a copy suitable for framing."

We then come to the high priority areas of economic and social policy. The speech re- cites the four economic goals of job opportunities, growth with ri'ing living standards, reason- price iiac-lliry and region- si expansion. There is very lit- tle m ii about the control oi in- flation: merely an assertion of -ovemmc-i's determmation a-d a p-oposs! for a joint com- mittee to study higher food prices and tneir effects. But the speech fairly bulges with items under th- other economic heads. No; all of them involve leg- islation.
