Britain's new MPs took their seats on the Commons' green benches on Tuesday for the first time since the General Election.
The new political landscape was on physical display, with Labour moving to the opposition benches to make way for both Conservative and Liberal Democrat MPs. It is the first time the Tories have sat to the right of the speakers chair since 1997, while the old Liberal party last sat there decades ago.
The new Government coalition deal saw Lib Dem Leader Nick Clegg take his seat on the front bench as Deputy Prime Minister, alongside Tory PM David Cameron. Both men had previously spent their entire Westminster careers on the opposition benches.
More than a third of the MPs taking their seats are new to the house, after the MPs expenses scandal prompted the largest political exodus in living memory.
The house's first task was to elect the Speaker, John Bercow, who was already in the chair.
The swearing in of all MPs will begin on Wednesday. The election of the Speaker is the only business MPs are allowed to conduct before they have taken the oath, or made a non-religious solemn affirmation, to the Queen.
The Speaker is the first MP to take the oath, followed by Father of the House, Sir Peter Tapsell, the Cabinet, the shadow cabinet and other privy counsellors and ministers.
Backbench MPs are taken in order of seniority, based on length of service in the Commons. The procedure is expected to run into next week.
Scotland sent 15 new MPs to the Commons.
