Cameron plans first major reshuffle as MPs return to Westminster

Speculation is mounting about an imminent ministerial reshuffle as MPs return for a new parliamentary term.

The reshuffle, which could come as early as Tuesday, would be the first major changes to David Cameron's top team since he became prime minister.

Although high-ranking ministers like the chancellor are unlikely to be affected, changes are expected in the cabinet and junior ministerial posts.

The former Conservative minister John Redwood says a cabinet reshuffle is not as important as the government's ideas on the economy.
