May 28, 2015

According to Euronews:

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth has outlined the government’s legislative agenda, during the official state opening of parliament at Westminster.

“…legislation will be introduced to provide for an in-out referendum on membership of the European Union before the end of 2017.”

The Queen also said that Britain would continue…efforts to defeat terrorism in the Middle East.

The UK will also “maintain pressure” on Russia to “respect the territorial integrity and sovereignty” of Ukraine – and will insist on the full implementation of the Minsk agreements.

The government’s programme will now be debated by the House of Commons and House of Lords.
