The Queen announced the Conservative government will adopt a 'One Nation approach, as she set out planned laws for the next one year.
Addressing peers and MPs in the Houses of Lords, the Queen is laying out a programme of tax cuts, job creation and house building.
David Cameron is promising tax cuts for 30million people as he sets out a 'Queen's Speech for working people'. The Prime Minister says he has a 'mandate from the British people' to implement his manifesto in full in the first Conservative Queen's Speech in two decades.
In an ambitious programme of laws to be passed in the next 12 months, Mr Cameron vows his One Nation government will offer 'a good education, a decent job, a home of your own and a secure retirement'.
But a row erupted after it emerged a Tory promise to scrap the Human Rights Act has been delayed, fearing it could be scuppered by an earlier rebellion.
