The Queen is to set out the Conservative government’s agenda for the year ahead, following their decisive election win last week.

The legislation to take the UK out of the EU on the 31st of January will be among more than 20 bills announced during the State Opening of Parliament.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson now has a Commons majority of 80 – which is the largest enjoyed by a Conservative leader since Margaret Thatcher in 1987.

The first debate and vote on an updated EU Withdrawal Agreement Bill is expected tomorrow, before MPs leave for the Christmas recess.

The Prime Minister’s increased parliamentary authority means, it is likely to pass without major changes in the New Year, in time to meet the 31st January deadline.
