It’s a new week and a new government, as Sir Keir Starmer and his team begin their first full week in office.

And it’s also the first day of school for hundreds of new MPs, so if you were feeling the Sunday dread last night, they might be in the same boat too.

Starmer is in Belfast today to meet Northern Ireland leaders, before continuing his UK tour in Cardiff later.

Rachel Reeves also has a big event this morning: she will give her first speech as chancellor and give a first overview of how she plans to grow the economy.

We also expect to hear more from the health secretary and education secretary about their plans for the NHS and teachers, and there will be plenty of political guests on the morning radio and TV shows. And all that, and it’s only Monday. Don’t miss our interview!
