UK: The Queen's Speech - Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill

The UK Parliament was opened yesterday, for the final session of the current term, by The Queen. The Queen's speech sets out the Government's legislation programme for the final session. The proposed Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill will (amongst other things) provide for the establishment of a public register of company beneficial ownership and make changes to the regime for the disqualification of directors. Consultation on these proposals has already taken place: see here.
