Boris Johnson news: New PM's Brexit plans instantly rejected by EU, as Tory minister says he is in a 'no-deal' cabinet
Follow how the day in Westminster unfolded
Boris Johnson has been accused of pandering to the hard-right, as he convened his cabinet and faced MPs in the Commons for the first time as prime minister.
After a brutal reshuffle – clearing out the vast majority of Theresa May‘s ministers – it became clear the new prime minister had built his new government around the team that delivered the Brexit result in 2016.
Some of the ministerial appointments in Mr Johnson’s new administration were met with dismay, including the promotion of Priti Patel to the Home Office.
The prime minister also used the reshuffle at minister of state level to promote allies and clear out MPs who oppose his stance on Brexit.
The first changes announced included Nigel Adams, who returns to government after resigning over Ms May's Brexit tactics.
He has been a loyal supporter of Mr Johnson and was rewarded with a role at the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.
Lucy Frazer moves from solicitor general to the Ministry of Justice.
Kit Malthouse, who was Mr Johnson's deputy mayor for policing during their time in London's City Hall, has become a Home Office minister.
Conor Burns has been appointed a minister at the Department for International Trade.
Nick Gibb retains his role at the Department for Education and Jesse Norman stays as financial secretary to the Treasury.
Follow how the day in Westminster unfolded:
Boris Johnson has ripped up Theresa May’s plans for immigration after Brexit – including her infamous pledge to slash annual numbers to “tens of thousands” – and ordered officials to explore more liberal rules.
In his first Commons statement, the new prime minister said advisers would be work up plans for “an Australian-style points based system”, declining to set any limit on migrants.
He also repeated his support for an amnesty for existing migrants without documents, acknowledging it could see “perhaps half a million people” gaining the right to remain in the UK.
Lawrence O’Donnell, host of the MSNBC network’s The Last Word, could barely contain his astonishment at the “crazy” process that allowed the Tory MP to take power after “just over one-tenth of one per cent of the British population” voted in the leadership contest.
Mr Johnson and Jean-Claude Juncker, the European Commission chief, have exchanged mobile phone numbers and agreed to keep in touch, the commission says.
A spokeswoman said the pair spoke on the phone this afternoon. "President Juncker congratulated Prime Minister Johnson on his appointment, and reaffirmed his commitment to working together in the best possible way.
"President Juncker listened to what prime minister Johnson had to say, reiterating the EU's position that the Withdrawal Agreement is the best and only agreement possible - in line with the European Council guidelines.
"President Juncker also underlined that the commission remains at the disposal of the United Kingdom to add language to the political declaration in line with what the 27 EU leaders recalled when they met in April earlier this year, and to analyse any ideas put forward by the United Kingdom, providing they are compatible with the Withdrawal Agreement."
Two more of Mr Johnson's appointments have been revealed.
Nigel Adams becomes a minister at the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, and Lucy Frazer goes to the Ministry of Justice.
Jesse Norman remains financial secretary to the Treasury.
A Number 10 spokesman said: "The prime minister today received a call of congratulation from European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker. The PM thanked the President for his message.
Conor Burns becomes minister of state at the Department for International Trade.
Therese Coffey gets a promotion from a junior minister at Defra to full minister of state rank.
As Mr Johnson began appointing ministers of state, Mr Hammond thanked officials and NHS staff, saying: "It has been a privilege to serve as minister for health.
The former junior Brexit minister said he could not "repeat my experience of powerlessness" he had felt.
Mark Lancaster remains a minister of state at the Ministry of Defence.
