MPs have been returning to Westminster following last week's election. There are new school vibes aplenty as the 2019 intake got to grips with Parliament's procedures and protocol.
Here's what happened today:
- In a minor reshuffle, Boris Johnson reappointed Nicky Morgan as culture secretary - she stepped down as an MP in last month's election but was made a Tory peer so she could continue in her government role. Simon Hart was also made Welsh secretary. Never heard of him? Here's a speedy bio.
- The prime minister also addressed his 109 new Tory MPs in Westminster Hall, thanking them for their "incredible achievement" in changing the political map of the country. He reiterated: "We must repay the trust of the electorate, that's what we're going to do. Flat out, after Christmas."
- Labour's Emily Thornberry has begun legal action against a former colleague who claimed that she called some Leave voters "stupid". She said Caroline Flint's claim she had told an MP from a Leave-voting area "I am glad my constituents aren't as stupid as yours" was "a complete lie". Ms Flint, who lost her seat at the election, has stood by her remarks. Read the full story here.
- In Labour leadership news, Sadiq Khan ruled himself out of the race, saying he is more interested in his current job of Mayor of London. Labour MPs Lisa Nandy and Clive Lewis say they're considering running, but no-one has officially thrown their hat into the ring. Here we discuss the likely contenders.
- Elsewhere, there's been a day of talks between Northern Ireland's five biggest parties and the NI Secretary Julian Smith, with the aim of restoring the Stormont Assembly. Mr Smith said so far the meetings had been "positive" and there's a recognition that voters have had enough of the Stormont stasis, which has gone on for almost three years. Read today's full story here and recap on why NI doesn't have a government here.
- And finally, the PM's official spokesman confirmed that Boris Johnson has now cleared a much-anticipated report into Russian covert actions in the UK for release. Our security correspondent Gordon Corera explains what's in the report and why it matters.
Thanks for joining us today. Tomorrow, MPs will be sworn into the House of Commons. See you then.
