Queen outlines Government aims in speech to Lords

Her Majesty has said the Government aims to "increase the life chances for the most disadvantaged" and would "continue to bring public finances under control so Britain lives within its means" as she began the reading of this year's Queen's Speech.

The Queen read the speech to a packed Lords.

The early measures outlined included an investment in infrastructure, faster broadband being rolled out around the country, plans to tackle money laundering and tax evasion following the recent London summit and the introduction of a 7-day NHS.

The Prime Minister stood beside Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn - obscured - for the reading of this year's speech on the Government's planned legislation agenda.
