Theresa May’s minority government proposes to implement new immigration laws in one of eight separate bills on Brexit outlined in the Queen’s speech.

Addressing MPs and peers in the House of Lords on 21 June, the Queen set out the government’s plans to deliver the legislation that will cover the UK’s exit from the European Union.

Of the 24 bills presented in the speech, eight concerned Brexit. This included an immigration bill that would give the UK “control of the number of people coming here from Europe while allowing us to continue attracting the brightest and the best”, according to an accompanying background document.
