Description

The government has set out its legislative agenda for the new parliamentary session in the Queen’s Speech. It contains 38 laws on topics ranging from spying, human rights, Brexit freedoms and disruptive protesters. For the first time in 59 years, the Queen was forced to defer to her son, the Prince of Wales, to deliver the speech in parliament. But what does it tell us about the government’s plans?

On the Sky News Daily podcast Sam Coates, our deputy political editor, is joined by Rhiannon Mills, our royal correspondent. He also speaks to Jon Craig, chief political correspondent, and Dr Alice Lilly, senior researcher at the Institute for Government.

Also, in parliament Sam catches up with Lisa Nandy, Labour’s shadow levelling up secretary, Christine Jardine, the Liberal Democrats’ Treasury spokeswoman, and Sir Desmond Swayne, the Conservative MP for New Forest West.
