Prime Minister Boris Johnson has made a statement to the House of Commons on priorities for Government.

This is the first time Mr Johnson has addressed the House in his role as Prime Minister.

The Prime Minister told MPs;

"Our mission is to deliver Brexit on the 31st October for the purpose of uniting and re-energising our great United Kingdom and making this country the greatest place on Earth."

Leader of the Opposition Jeremy Corbyn replied;

"People do not trust this Prime Minister to make the right choices for the majority of people in this country when he's also promising tax giveaways to the richest and big business, his own party's funders."
