Labour election candidate reacts to Queen's Speech

Speculation that the visit had indeed been canceled grew on Wednesday after Queen Elizabeth failed to mention Trump during a speech marking the opening of Parliament.

But flagship manifesto policies which find no place in the government agenda included the scrapping of universal free school lunches, means-testing of the winter fuel payment and the reform of social care funding which opponents branded a "dementia tax".

"The formality is that you can not put the date of the president's state visit into the Queen's Speech until it has been actually agreed".

A British government spokesman said Trump's visit wasn't mentioned because a date hasn't been set.

The speech is a list of laws that the British government plans to bring forward in the coming year.

Mr Carmichael said: "This is a historic chance to defeat the Government and force Theresa May to rethink her approach to Brexit".

"This is yet another humiliating climbdown for a lame-duck Prime Minister", he said. Buckingham Palace said Philip, 96, was hospitalized as a precaution for treatment of an infection.

The monarch reads the speech on behalf of the government.

Fresh clashes in Darjeeling between police & GJM protesters
An injured cop being taken to hospital following clashes between secuity forces and GJM supporters in Darjeeling on Saturday. But the GJM persisted with its agitation, and then called a shutdown, which has emptied the hills of tourists.

As protesters marched on the prime minister's residence in what they called a "day of rage" - a demonstration against perceived malfeasance and government inaction - the queen announced a Conservative plan to launch a "full public inquiry into the tragic fire" in order to "ascertain the causes, and ensure that the appropriate lessons are learnt".

"As a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, committed to spending zero point seven percent of national income on worldwide development, my government will continue to drive worldwide efforts that increase global security and project British values around the world", she said.

Protesters in London on Wednesday call for justice for the victims of the Grenfell Tower blaze.

Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn denounced the speech, arguing that May had delivered a "threadbare" program devoid of new ideas. Declining her traditional horse-drawn carriage, keeping the imperial crown beside her rather than atop her head and swapping the royal robes for a blue dress, the queen pointedly toned down the pomp this year.

The primary issue was scheduling.

She also travelled by auto instead of the traditional horse-driven carriage to deliver her speech.

An Immigration Bill abolishes European Union free movement rules after Brexit and provides a framework for the United Kingdom to control migration while attracting "the brightest and the best".
