This news article was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

Enterprise, aspiration, public service reform and national security should be the Coalition Government's priorities for 2011, Prime Minister David Cameron has said.

In a podcast reviewing his Government’s first months in office and looking ahead to next year, Mr Cameron said he believed ministers had been “decisive, bold and determined” and must maintain that drive in the coming months.

He added that the Government had the right plan to pull through the “tough times” ahead and make 2011 the year that Britain gets back on its feet.

The PM said:

2011 is going to be a difficult year, as we take hard but necessary steps to sort things out.

But the actions we are taking are essential, because they are putting our economy and our country on the right path.

Together, we can make 2011 the year that Britain gets back on its feet.
