Queen's Speech 2017 and Brexit legislation

Overview

On 29 June the House of Commons passed the Government's legislative plans for the next two years by 323 votes to 309. These plans - announced in the Queen's Speech - provide the clearest sense yet of how Prime Minister Theresa May and her minority administration are preparing the country for the UK's withdrawal from the European Union.

The Queen's Speech included eight separate Bills which will together provide the legislative underpinning for Brexit. This article takes a close look at each of them.
