Greg Clark has been re-appointed Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Secretary following the UK post-election reshuffle.

Prime Minister Theresa May has yet to confirm if energy minister Jesse Norman and climate minister Nick Hurd remain in post.

May meanwhile picked Michael Gove as Environment Secretary after previous incumbent Andrea Leadsom was moved to Leader of the Commons.

The Queen was due to open the new parliament on 19 June and announce the government's legislative programme ahead of a vote on 27 June.

The Queen's Speech is however set to be delayed as the Conservative and Democratic Unionist parties hammer out a pact that would give the government an effective majority in the Commons.  

Summer recess is scheduled for 20 July.
