PM intends to set plans for Brexit bill, carry out minor cabinet reshuffle and present Queen’s speech before Christmas

Boris Johnson will tell the next generation of more than 100 new Tory MPs that they have a responsibility to change the party for good, as he sets out plans for a first vote on his Brexit bill before the festive season.

With just a week until Christmas, the UK prime minister intends to accelerate plans for his Brexit bill, carry out a minor cabinet reshuffle and present a Queen’s speech, before shifting his focus to reshaping Whitehall in the new year.

He will begin by telling his new Tory recruits, who mostly represent northern and Midlands seats, they must help him deliver for the voters in their areas.

A No 10 source said: “The seismic events on Thursday returned Conservative MPs in Bolsover, in Blyth and in Bishop Auckland to name a few. This election and the new generation of MPs that have resulted from Labour towns turning blue will help change our politics for the better.
