The Queen's Speech on 14 May will contain a wide-ranging Education Bill giving the government the power to close failing schools and phase out the assisted places scheme, according to the Sunday Telegraph (page 25, 4 May).

Four other key pieces of legislation include:

A Bill to enable referendums on Scottish and Welsh devolution

A Bill to introduce a national minimum wage

A Health Bill reforming the NHS internal market

A Crime and Disorder Bill to speed up sentencing procedures for young offenders and introduce curfews and powers to deal with nuisance neighbours.
