LONDON, June 15 Britain will hold its state
opening of parliament on June 21 when the government will set
out its legislative agenda, the Press Association news agency
quoted Andrea Leadsom, leader of the lower house of parliament,
as saying on Thursday.
By setting the date for the beginning of parliament, when
Queen Elizabeth will make a speech, the government looks
confident that a deal with a small Northern Irish party to prop
up British Prime Minister Theresa May will be agreed.
Reuters could not immediately confirm the report.
