Senior Cabinet minister offer support to United Kingdom prime minister

Traditionally written on vellum, the Queen's Speech is now written on parchment paper in ink, which takes several days to dry, before it is bound into a booklet and signed by the queen - meaning its contents need to be finalized days before the speech is delivered. The government prepares the speech for the monarch, and reportedly it had two versions ready before the election; one to be used in the case of a Conservative majority, and one for an outright Labour victory.

Some lawmakers, particularly those from the Scottish National Party, are urging cross-party discussions to reach a consensus on Britain's exit from the EU.

Ms May faced Conservative MPs at a meeting of the party's 1922 Committee.

Party leaders at Stormont are expected to meet the Secretary of State, James Brokenshire, and the Irish Minister for Foreign Affairs on Monday. "If the prime minister is dependent on the DUP then all sorts of backroom deals will be done which could impact on the Good Friday process - could put it in jeopardy and could destroy confidence amongst other parties".

The DUP under Ms Foster, a member of the Church of Ireland, has been more concerned about matters surrounding Brexit, the free movement of people from the Province to Britain without having to show passports, and a "soft" border with the Republic. "Now is the time for delivery and Theresa May is the right person to continue that vital work".

Irish people were among protesters attending a demonstration against the Conservative party alliance with the DUP in Parliament Square on June 10, 2017 in London.

But even in this her lack of authority prevented her from major moves or sackings.

Republicans and Unionists are set to clash over Westminster funding as Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams dispatches his abstentionist MPs to rattle the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) with the threat of a Corbyn coalition.

Over the weekend, May's top two aides stepped aside. Instead, the unnecessary election has cost May control of her party, of Parliament, and of government policy, at one of the most critical junctures in the country's recent history.

Ms. May has restored former Justice Secretary Michael Gove to the Cabinet in another move created to show she was willing to listen to critics. Gove, who was dismissed when May became prime minister a year ago, will now serve as environment secretary.

Conservative leaders on Monday sought to shift the debate away from May's wounded leadership and onto complex Brexit talks, which are formally set to begin next week.

Earlier, Brexit Secretary David Davis had signalled that discussions about the UK's exit from the European Union might not start on June 19 due to the clash with the Queen's Speech.

"It may not be on the Monday because we also have got the Queen's Speech that week and I will have to speak in that, and so on", he told Sky News.

Mr. Davis suggested the government would focus on the divorce proceedings before moving on to trade.

Mrs May also assured MPs that the DUP would not have any sway over policy on LGBT rights and any "confidence and supply" deal with them would not have any effect on talks aiming to restore the powersharing Northern Ireland government, the MP said.

Moody's Investors Service said the inconclusive election outcome would complicate and "probably delay" negotiations with the EU.

May is due to begin Brexit negotiations with Brussels on June 19 in a weaker position than before the June election. Scotland voted overwhelmingly to stay in the European Union, so most Scottish party leaders have backed a softer Brexit. "May would not have countenanced previously, and which would be positive".

The report also pointed out that, "contrary to much of the media and political commentary", the majority of businesses inquired said they were broadly satisfied with the current regulatory approaches in their sector.

Patrick Corrigan, Northern Ireland programme director of Amnesty International, said: "There is now a very clear majority within the Northern Ireland Assembly in favour of marriage equality". They also believe another election would negatively impact the United Kingdom economy.
