Queen's Speech debate
MPs continued their debate on the Queen's Speech, focusing on policies relating to Home Affairs, on 9 May 2013.
The speech, prepared by Cabinet and delivered by the Queen, set out the government's legislative agenda for the year ahead.
It featured 15 bills, two draft bills, and two carry-over bills from the previous parliamentary session.
An Immigration Bill is designed to make it easier to deport foreign criminals more easily, while migrants' access to the NHS will be restricted. Businesses caught employing illegal foreign labour, and landlords who house them as tenants, will face large fines.
Meanwhile, a Pensions Bill will introduce a single weekly state pension of £144, while social care costs will be capped under the Care Bill. Other policies relate to consumer rights and national insurance contributions.
