2018 Queen’s Speech Cancelled by Government

There will be no queen’s speech next year to give MPs more time to deal with Brexit laws, the government says. Leader of the Commons Andrea Leadsom said the next parliamentary session was being doubled in length to two years, BBC reported. The highly unusual move would allow MPs to scrutinize “substantial amounts of legislation”, she said. This year’s speech by British Queen Elizabeth was due on Monday but has been put off until Wednesday, as Theresa May’s minority government seeks a deal with the DUP. The queen’s speech traditionally takes place during the ceremonial state opening of parliament, setting out the government’s proposed legal program for the coming year. The last time it was cancelled was in 2011 by the then Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition government. That decision, the first time it had been taken since 1949, was criticized at the time by Labour as an “abuse of power” aimed solely at easing the passage of controversial legislation.
