Following the State Opening of Parliament, members from the House of Commons began debate on the legislative proposals set out by the government in the Queen’s speech. British Prime Minister Theresa May and Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn began the debate and were interrupted several times by members who had additional questions on a range of issues not addressed in the speech.
