LONDON, June 12 Britain's Conservatives hope to
produce a substantial legislative programme once they have
hammered out a deal to gain support from Northern Ireland's
Democratic Unionist Party after an inconclusive election, a
senior lawmaker said on Monday.
Prime Minister Theresa May failed to secure an outright
majority after Thursday's election, plunging Britain into a
political crisis and raising the prospect of her administration
having to ditch many policy pledges.
"We want to produce a substantial Queen's Speech," Cabinet
Office minister Damian Green told Sky News on Monday. "There's a
huge amount of work to get on with, not just the Brexit
negotiations that start next week but many other challenges that
face us," he said.
