The State Opening of Parliament brought a return to the Westminster wrangling today, after MPs were sworn in.
Here's a quick round-up of some of today's events:
- Boris Johnson's government has outlined its plans for this Parliament, with more than 30 bills featuring in the Queen's Speech.
- Seven were on Brexit - covering legislation on trade, agriculture, fisheries, immigration, financial services and private international law. Others included increased funding for schools and the NHS and measures to improve internet safety.
- The government has re-published a new version of the EU Withdrawal Agreement Bill, which it expects to be approved tomorrow. You can read Laura Kuenssberg's analysis here.
- Leader of the House of Commons, Jacob Rees-Mogg, confirms that MPs will then get three further days to debate the bill on 7, 8 and 9 January.
- Shadow Treasury minister Clive Lewis has joined Emily Thornberry in the race to become the next Labour leader. Mr Lewis told the Guardian he feared "necessary truths may go unspoken" if he didn't put himself forward.
- Momentum's national coordinator, Laura Parker, announces she is to stand down from her role with Labour's grassroots campaign group to spend more time with her family.
- Scotland's first minister has called on the UK government to transfer more powers to Holyrood to allow another referendum on Scottish independence.
- Talks between the main party leaders in Northern Ireland have been held today but are yet to succeed in their aim to restore Stormont.
- The Independent Group for Change - which once boasted 11 MPs - is being disbanded after failing to win any seats at the general election
- Former Tory MP Zac Goldsmith - who also lost his seat in the election - has been handed a life peerage, allowing him to continue in his role as environment minister
- And the government has said it will close its Department for Exiting the European Union (aka the Brexit department) on 31 January.
Boris Johnson's Withdrawal Agreement Bill - the legislation that enables the UK to leave the EU - will come back to the Commons for a second reading tomorrow.
Friday will also be the last day that MPs sit in the Commons before the Christmas recess.
