    As prime minister Theresa May is facing calls to resign, her attempts to create a government are moving ahead. May's plans for the next two years of parliament have been laid out today in the Queen's speech. The Queen announced May's legislation proposals during an appearance in the House of Lords as she sat alongside Prince Charles. Yet, a number of key Conservative Party manifesto pledges and plans – surrounding a so-called dementia tax and a state visit of Donald Trump – were missed out. A government breakdown of the points are here and a list of talking points has also been published. These are the main, science, technology, and business proposals announced on behalf of the Prime Minister. The majority of these are extensions on proposals put forward in the Conservative manifesto.

    Digital charter
    A new Digital Charter will be created by the government. May says this will have two objectives: to make it easier to run online companies and make the UK "the safest place in the world to be online".

    The Charter will be "underpinned" by regulations. There are no details on what these will be but May has already started working with other countries to develop fines for tech companies that don't remove terror content from their networks.
