Here's What The Queen Laid Out In Her Speech To Parliament

Here's What The Queen Laid Out In Her Speech To Parliament”

Eight of the 27 proposed bills and draft bills were centered around tackling Brexit, including customs, trade and immigration.

Parliament then votes on the agendas laid out in the speech.

Reacting to the Queen's Speech today, Nick Molho, Executive Director of the Aldersgate Group, said: "It is encouraging to see the government's desire to make the United Kingdom a leader in new industries and enhance its role on the world stage".

"Is the queen trying to tell us something about Brexit with her hat?" the Daily Telegraph asked.

Having called a snap election in the hope of securing an increased majority to deliver Brexit in a "strong and stable" way, Mrs May acknowledged that the outcome was "not the one I hoped for". Though the queen reads the speech every year, Britain's ruling party actually writes it. May omitted several policies touted in the Conservative election campaign, including plans to change funding for the care of older people, which opponents dubbed the "dementia tax".

The Queen's Speech in 2013 made no mention of South Korean President Park Geun-hye's state visit. May's invitation, extended with days of Trump taking office, has been sharply criticized by all parties.

Theresa May was accused of a "power grab" last night as she abandoned key manifesto commitments in a "threadbare" Queen's Speech which was focused largely on Brexit.

A Number 10 spokesman said the President's visit wasn't included in the Queen's Speech "because a date hasn't been fixed yet".

She did not go into specifics for this plan, but the inclusion was timely.

This year saw a scaled-back State opening of Parliament Ceremony with the Queen arriving by vehicle rather than carriage and not wearing the Imperial State Crown or the Robes of State. Buckingham Palace said Philip, 96, has been hospitalized as a precaution for treatment of an infection.

Since talks began with the DUP nearly two weeks ago in the chaos following May's unexpected loss of her majority, the negotiations have followed an uncertain course with conflicting signals about whether a deal would be struck.

In remarks after the speech, May acknowledged government failings in helping victims of a massive fire in a west London tower block on June 14. "This would be a thin legislative programme even if it was for one year, but for two years, two years; there's not enough in it to fill up one year". With the Prime Minister's authority already weak, talk has turned to who will be her eventual successor.

That in turn could lead to Jeremy Corbyn having the chance to form an alternative government or another election.
