Green tinge to Queens Speech
THE Queens Speech setting out the legislative programme for the last full session of parliament will have a “green” theme, claims The Daily Telegraph.
It will include a countryside bill establishing a right of access to mountain and moorland.
But the newspaper said there would be no room for government legislation on banning hunting with hounds.
Labour backbenchers hope to promote a private members bill.
