Queen's Speech date in UK Parliament in doubt

Queen's Speech date in UK Parliament in doubt

"Her manifesto didn't win, people don't have confidence in her, she is a wounded Prime Minister, she's not really going to be able to do anything", the shadow foreign secretary told BBC2's Victoria Derbyshire programme. "It had been due to take place next Monday".

Writing in the Belfast Telegraph, she said: "When I meet with the Prime Minister in London tomorrow, I will be mindful of our responsibility to help bring stability to the nation at this time of challenge".

The visibly weakened premier denied she was feeling "shell-shocked" after her election gamble backfired. But what I'm doing now is actually getting on with the immediate job'. Boris Johnson, who has appealed for unity after being named as her most likely leadership challenger, was in attendance.

"The DUP are another democratically-elected party, the same way the Liberal Democrats were when we went into coalition with them in 2010".

But Ruth Davidson, the pro-EU leader of the Conservatives in Scotland, called on May to "reopen" the government's Brexit plans.

Nicola Sturgeon, addressing the media after a photocall with her Westminster group of 35 MPs, questioned whether or not Mrs May could put together a "functioning government", noting how there was a lot of concern about a Tory administration being propped up by the DUP.

Her colleague Stewart Hosie, who is acting leader of the SNP Group at Westminster, when asked if any delay in the Queen's Speech would show how in hock the Conservative Government was to the DUP, replied: "It may well demonstrate that".

It had been scheduled for June 19 and has been in the queen's diary since April.

BBC assistant political editor Norman Smith said: "The government has yet to nail down this deal with the DUP and they will be very wary of presenting a Queen's Speech unless they are absolutely confident they can get it through - because if they can't and they are defeated on the Queen's speech, that is tantamount to a vote of no confidence".

"It's been known for some days that we are seeking an agreement with the DUP".
