The Queen’s Speech at the beginning of the 2014-15 Session will take place on Wednesday 4 June 2014.

This Standard Note gathers together announcements from ministers and speculation from commentators on the issues that might be included in the forthcoming Queen’s Speech. It includes issues that are expected to be the subject of Bills or draft legislation in the 2014-15 Parliamentary Session. The issues discussed reflect both commitments made in Parliament and elsewhere, and press reports of possible legislation. The list has been compiled with the help of the subject specialists in the Library’s Research Service. It does not constitute an official list of the Government’s intentions.

Gordon Brown’s Government published draft legislative programmes in advance of the 2007-08, 2008-09 and 2009-10 Sessions. The current Government has not continued this practice.
