United Kingdom state opening of parliament pushed back to June 21

United Kingdom state opening of parliament pushed back to June 21”

This year's State Opening of Parliament and Queen's Speech will take place on Wednesday 21st June.

Sources from within the government say that that the decision was planned before the election, and would ensure that Brexit would not be disrupted by new legislation.

The Queen's Speech - which sets the legislative programme for the government - is a big moment in the parliamentary calendar.

The date of the Queen's Speech was not relevant to the talks, Dodds was quoted as saying.

A deal between the Conservatives and the Democratic Unionist Party to prop up a minority government may not be reached by the time the Queen's Speech goes ahead next week, it has been revealed.

It is suggested not having another Queen's Speech cuts the risk of a career-ending Commons defeat with the Tories' slim majority with DUP support.

"We are not turning our backs on Europe", he said in the statement.

May's preparations for one of the biggest diplomatic challenges a United Kingdom leader has faced since World War II have been roiled by her failure to secure a parliamentary majority in an election she called.

A Conservative-DUP confidence and supply deal is expected to be finalised and announced on either Tuesday or Thursday next week, Sky News understands.

"Discussions are going well with the government and we hope soon to be able to bring this work to a successful conclusion", Foster wrote on Twitter after the meeting.

The 1998 Good Friday Agreement commits the United Kingdom and Irish governments to demonstrate "rigorous impartiality" in their dealings with the different political traditions in Northern Ireland.

Writing in the Sunday Mirror, he said that if the prime minister "can't command the support of Parliament, we are ready to take that responsibility".

"A little side bargain to keep Theresa May in power - a temporary little arrangement - won't have any integrity". "Any agreement the DUP secures and any of the things we can win over for Northern Ireland will be for everyone in Northern Ireland", the DUP sources added.

The PM has taken the unusual step due to the amount and complex nature of Brexit related legislation that will need to pass in order for the country to be prepared to leave the EU.
