Just nine weeks after Queen's Speech I, we have Queen's Speech II - the sequel, but this time the political landscape has fundamentally changed with an emboldened government setting out its stall for the next five years.
Brexit is of course the key measure, with seven Parliamentary bills planned on trade, agriculture, fisheries, immigration, financial services and private international law.
Key announcements in the speech:
New Year Budget 2020
We do not yet know the date of the next Budget, but it is expected to be after the UK leaves the EU on 31 January 2020. Early February appears to be the likely time.
We have previously covered what might be in the Budget here.
