The Conservatives have won the 2019 general election with their biggest majority since 1987.
With a Conservative majority, Boris Johnson should have enough backing from MPs to take the UK out of the European Union in a matter of weeks.
Following a cabinet reshuffle on Monday, the Brexit bill will go before MPs on Friday 20 December with a view to leaving the EU by the end of January.
The Conservatives have also promised to negotiate a trade agreement with the EU next year and said they will refuse to extend Brexit completion before the end of 2020.
With the election out of the way, the Queen's Speech, which reopens Parliament, is expected on Thursday 19 December.
It's expected that a major cabinet reshuffle will take place in February once the UK has left the EU. Many are predicting a Budget early next year.
This is a promise to not raise rates on our wages or the things we buy for the next five years.
Their manifesto also included a commitment to raise the National Insurance threshold to £9,500 in 2020, which the Tories say will represent a tax cut for 31 million workers.
Their ambition is to eventually raise the threshold further to £12,500.
National Insurance contributions are a tax of 12% taken off your salary above a certain level - currently £8,632.
The pledge could see 25 and 30-year mortgages becoming more common.
Other promises include a commitment to offer more homes to local families with a discount of up to a third for those who cannot afford to buy in their area.
For renters, the government plans to abolish 'no fault' evictions and look at plans to introduce a 'lifetime deposit' that moves with tenants.
This means the state pension will increase by inflation, wage growth or 2.5% each year - whichever is highest.
Former Prime Minister Theresa May pledged to scrap the 2.5% guarantee in the 2017 election. But she was forced to abandon the pledge to win support from the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP).
The Conservative party has also pledged to:
Universal Credit is a new system that replaces six existing benefits with one overall payment that is paid monthly and in arrears.
The scheme is gradually being rolled out across the UK, but has faced criticism over long delays pushing people into hardship.
The manifesto contained little detail on how ongoing complaints about these issues would be addressed.
Other benefit promises include a pledge to reduce the number of reassessments a disabled person has to go through to prove their disability and to extend entitlement to leave for unpaid carers.
The Tories have pledged to inject £9.2bn to improve the energy efficiencies of homes, schools and hospitals.
The Tories plan to establish a new £1bn fund to help create more high-quality, affordable childcare, including before and after school, and during the school holidays.
To help fulfil a pledge of introducing 50,000 more nurses (31,000 of which would be new recruits), the Conservatives plan to introduce a maintenance grant for students worth up to £8,000 a year.
Teacher's starting salaries will be raised to £30,000.
A major Tory pledge is a 'guarantee' that no one that needs care will have to sell their home to pay for it.
To help realise this promise the party will move to form a cross-party agreement over funding.
In the meantime, it will provide £1bn additional funding beginning in April 2020, and every year of the next parliament.
The Conservatives also plan to take action on hospital car parking fees.
The party has promised to end hospital car parking charges for those in greatest need, including people with disabilities and staff working night shifts.
The hated 'Tampon Tax', which adds a 5% VAT charge on sanitary products will be abolished after the UK leaves the EU.
The Tories say they will address the state of the UK's roads by launching the 'biggest ever pothole-filling programme.'
Other transport promises include a new rail line connecting Leeds and Manchester, funding for city regions to upgrade their bus, tram and train services.
The party has said that it will invest £1bn in completing a fast-charging network to ensure that everyone is within 30 miles of a rapid electric vehicle charging station.
Plans to create a new £350m cycling infrastructure fund to support commuter cyclists also featured in the manifesto.
Student finance was also on the Conservative agenda.
Their manifesto contained a woolly promise to review interest rates on student loan repayments.
For now, it looks as if the current freeze on tuition fees in England at £9,250 will continue.
Which? has set out six commitments for the government to deliver positive, tangible improvements for individuals across the UK.
These include providing banking services that work for everyone, better protection over unsafe products and fairer pensions.
