THE QUEEN’S SPEECH (KEY)

THE QUEEN’S SPEECH

One of the high points in the British parliamentary calendar is the annual Queen’s Speech, WHICH contains an outline of the government’s policies and legislative agenda FOR the coming year. It is written by the government and delivered BY the queen as part of an annual ceremony KNOWN as the State Opening of Parliament. There is a great DEAL of formality and tradition surrounding the event, WHICH takes place in the House of Lords, usually in November.

In the United States of America, the President reports ON the condition of the country and sets OUT the government’s legislative programme in the State of the Union Address. Tens of millions of people watch the speech live ON television and the internet when it is delivered in January or February each year TO congress, WHICH consists of members of the House of Representatives and the Senate.
