Not too often that happens - Conservative MP Caroline Spelman kicks off proceedings by moving the loyal address to Her Majesty which thanks the monarch for the speech and is expected to be uncontentious and humourous. The MP for Meriden begins by saying that when she was summoned to see the chief whip she thought, "What have I done?" Her happiness at discovering the summons were for a good reason, she says, was tempered by her "angst at doing it well". Speaking about the importance of cross-party relationships in Parliament - Ms Spelman says that she had to explain cross-party fraternisation to her children. "It's like when your friend supports Aston Villa and you support Coventry and you think he is misguided - but you are still friends."
