The prime minister has pencilled in tomorrow and Wednesday for the reshuffle, which is expected to impact hardest on middle and junior ministerial ranks rather than the cabinet, reports The Guardian (p2).

Some of the 1997 intaks of MPs, including many talented young 'Blairites' are to be blooded in the whips' office, traditional training ground for future ministers, the paper predicts.

The shape of the reshuffle is known only to the prime minister and a handful of advisers. Many decisions are only taken in the last 24 hours.
