The State Opening of Parliament took place on Monday, with the Queen’s Speech setting out the government’s agenda for the next session of Parliament.

It was announced that The Agriculture Bill will be reintroduced, whilst an Environment Bill will look to “enshrine principles in law” and set legally binding “improvement targets” to reduce plastics, cut air pollution, restore biodiversity and improve water quality.

WebbPaton will track progress on the above and provide further updates when more is known.
