The Prime Minister is under pressure from Tory MPs to embrace proposals from the Right of his party ahead of the State Opening of Parliament.

As MPs return to Westminster today after the party conference season, Rishi Sunak is being urged to use the King’s Speech to ‘shape the political agenda’ with only a year to go until the general election.

Senior Tory MPs have thrown their weight behind proposals from conservative think-tank Policy Exchange on housing, crime and sex education in schools. 

The King’s Speech, to open the next session of Parliament, will take place on November 7 and sees the Government set out its policies and planned legislation.

Former Cabinet minister Sir Brandon Lewis called on Mr Sunak to reform the planning process to speed up the building of homes.

He said the proposals would ‘expedite the delivery of badly needed housing and infrastructure in a material way’. 

Sir Simon Clarke endorsed calls for market-based reforms of the energy sector, which Policy Exchange said would improve affordability for customers.

The former chief secretary to the Treasury said: ‘Businesses are constantly telling policy makers that energy costs and the burden of regulation is inhibiting their ability to grow.

‘Policy Exchange’s proposals for the King’s Speech will […] ease the cost of living for households up and down the country.’
