Queen Elizabeth ' s 65th Speech focuses on Brexit. The speech is written by UK PM and team that she reads from the throne of House of Lords The World is One
LONDON (Reuters) - Queen Elizabeth set out Prime Minister Boris Johnson ’ s agenda for his government on Monday, including an Oct. 31 Brexit, a new deal with the European Union, and a host of domestic policies designed to win over voters ahead of an expected election. The so-called Queen ’s
Johnson fought the election on the slogan "Get Brexit done".
The so-called Queen's Speech is used to detail all the bills the government plans to enact over the coming year.
It is written by the government and is delivered by the monarch from a throne in parliament's gilded House of Lords debating chamber.
Thursday's speech to parliament will be the 93-year-old queen's second in as many months.
She made one on Oct. 14, shortly before the election was called following a prolonged deadlock in parliament over the government's Brexit plans.
The October speech laid out 22 new bills - pieces of proposed legislation - including several covering tougher treatment for foreign criminals and sex offenders, and new protection for victims of domestic abuse.
Boris Johnson sees ‘wonderful adventure’ after Brexit. But Scotland and Northern Ireland brace for a bumpier ride.
The Conservatives won big, Brexit seems unstoppable and Johnson promises Britain will get its mojo back.“We’re going to recover our national self-confidence, our mojo, our self-belief, and we’re going to do things differently and better as a country,” Johnson told an audience of prescreened supporters at a cricket club in Sedgefield.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will not resign if parliament rejects his government's programme as set out on Monday in the so-called Queen 's Speech, his spokesman said. Earlier, Queen Elizabeth set out Johnson ' s agenda for his government, with a repeated commitment to leave the European.
Johnson's office said Thursday’s speech was expected to provide continuity with what the queen outlined in October, with some additions to strengthen the justice system and enshrine in law a multi-year funding settlement for Britain's state-funded National Health Service.
The new government's top priority, however, will be to finally secure parliamentary approval for the bill to take Britain out of the European Union.
Johnson said on Friday Britain would leave the EU on Jan. 31, "no ifs, no buts, no maybes".
The Queen's Speech will also detail plans to provide a better service for rail commuters, greater protection for people who rent their homes, and stop local authorities boycotting products from other countries such as Israel.
The restoration of devolved government in Northern Ireland after a near three-year hiatus and "a strong United Kingdom" will also be a focus of Johnson's government, his office said.
Earlier on Saturday, Johnson visited former strongholds of his Labour opponents in northern England and pledged to repay their trust for helping to deliver his stunning election victory.
He has previously promised to spend more money on health, education and the police, and to build more infrastructure, especially in northern England and the Midlands.
