State Opening of Parliament and Queen's Speech date announced



The State Opening of Parliament and Queen's Speech will take place next Wednesday, Commons leader Andrea Leadsom has announced.

 
It had been due to take place on Monday, but was delayed by Theresa May's efforts to strike a deal with the DUP to back her minority government.


The Queen will read out a prepared speech on Mrs May's plans for new laws.


It is expected to be a slimmed down programme after the PM lost her majority in the general election.
