UK's new prime minister embarks on first day

LONDON (AP) - British Prime Minister David Cameron has quietly begun his first full day at work, arriving at his new home No. 10 Downing Street but making no immediate announcements about the shape of his government.

Cameron, Britain's youngest prime minister in two centuries, has a heavy agenda today, the day after he sealed a coalition deal between his Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats.

Steps to deal with Britain's slowly recovering economy and its ballooning debt loom as a crucial early focus for the government. At least 1.3 million people have been laid off and tens of thousands have lost their homes in a crushing recession.

Cameron has pledged an emergency budget within 50 days.
