The Week Ahead

The Irish Referendum on 12th June will be watched with interest from Westminster. The House of Lords will be spending Wednesday on the European Union (Amendment) Bill - but a No vote on Thursday will throw everything up in the air.

The House of Representatives will consider H.Res. 1063 – which would mark "the 225th anniversary of the Treaty of Paris of 1783, which ended the Revolutionary War with the Kingdom of Great Britain and recognized the independence of the United States of America, and acknowledging the shared values and close friendship between the peoples and governments of the United States and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland"
