The Prime Minister pledged to run her minority government with “humility and resolve” as she prepared to publish her legislative plans in the Queen’s Speech on Wednesday.
The package will be dominated by Brexit and will be shorn of the Tory manifesto’s most contentious proposals. She has taken the unusual step of detailing plans for a two-year parliamentary session on the grounds that it covers the timetable for leaving the European Union.
Mrs May insisted that it would be a “busy legislative session with a number of Bills geared towards making a success of Brexit”.
Counterterror moves planned
The Speech will set out plans to toughen action on domestic violence, tackle motor insurance fraud and increase protection for tenants.
It is also expected to promise improvements to mental health services and technical education, as well as fresh counterterrorism measures following the attacks in Manchester, London Bridge and Finsbury Park.
