  • Jeremy Corbyn response to the Queen’s Speech

    Responding to the Queen’s Speech, Jeremy Corbyn MP, Leader of the Labour Party, said:

    Mr Speaker, this year marks the anniversary the 70th anniversary of the 1949 Parliament Act, which asserted the primacy of this House over the House of Lords. And in this anniversary year the House has acquitted itself well in proving its worth. It is also the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Representation of the People Act, which extended the vote for anyone over the age of 18 years. As we meet today, we should commit to strengthening our democracy and the vital role of this democratic House in holding to account the Executive.
