British Prime Minister Boris Johnson addressed MPs on Tuesday as the House of Commons resumed following last week's general election.

Lindsay Hoyle was elected as Commons Speaker.

Johnson, speaking to a packed chamber that re-elected Lindsay Hoyle as Speaker, said his Conservative government will "Get Brexit Done" and voiced his opposition to Scotland breaking away from the United Kingdom.

The Scottish National Party said its gains in the general election should pave the way for a new independence referendum.

Johnson told MPs that parliament, where the Conservatives now hold a majority, should resist calls to break up the United Kingdom.

"We will reach out across the house to find common ground," he said.

Although Johnson is eager to get on with his strategy to take Britain out of the European Union by the end of January, Westminster had to first go through its traditional pomp and ceremony as part of the re-opening procedures.

The parliament will spend two days swearing in MPs, preparing for Thursday's opening of the new session by Queen Elizabeth.
