During this morning's speech, the Queen told parliament that child neglect will be tackled alongside serious organised crime in a new 'Serious Crime Bill' that will also reinforce powers to claw back the proceeds of crime from convicted criminals.

Ceredigion MP Mark Williams has previously called for a change in the law on child neglect and said he was 'reassured' by today's announcement.

There were no major announcements for Wales, but the Queen did say that two schemes pioneered in Wales - charging for plastic bags and the creation of a Anti-Human Trafficking Commissioner - will be established in England.

The Queen said that plans to give the Welsh Government financial and tax powers would continue and also reaffirmed that the NATO summit will come to Newport this autumn.
