After the opening of Parliament, the House of Commons resumes its sitting. Sessional orders are made1, and a bill of a formal character, the Outlawries Bill, is read the first time2; certain other business may also be transacted3. The Speaker4 then reports to the House that he has been to the House of Lords to hear the Speech from the Throne, which he proceeds to read to the House5. Two members who have been entrusted with the task by the government then move and second an address of thanks to the monarch. A debate lasting several days then follows.
