Rishi Sunak welcomed David Cameron back to Cabinet with a joke yesterday as he told his assembled top team: 'Let's get to work'.

Delivering a pep talk to his newly-minted Cabinet, the Prime Minister said it was time to 'make the long-term decisions that are going to change our country for the better'.

Joking about the return of Lord Cameron, who was prime minister between 2010 and 2016, Mr Sunak said: 'A warm welcome to those for whom it's their first Cabinet and also a welcome to those for whom it may not be their first time.'

Lord Cameron's return was kept a closely-guarded secret for a week and stunned Westminster when he was unveiled as Foreign Secretary on Monday morning.

However it can be revealed that he had lunch with his new Foreign Office colleague development minister Andrew Mitchell in an exclusive private members' club while his appointment was still under wraps.
