Parliament returns on Tuesday with Labour ministers on the government frontbench for the first time in 14 years.

After Sir Keir Starmer led the party to a resounding victory in last week's general election, the new prime minister listed some of his priorities for the next five years in office.

While warning in his first Downing Street speech that “changing a country is not like flicking a switch", he said "the work of change begins immediately".

Starmer said: "Have no doubt that we will rebuild Britain with wealth created in every community.

“Our NHS back on its feet facing the future.
