British Prime Minister David Cameron will be returning to Canada next week, and is scheduled to address Members of Parliament and Senators next Thursday.

The last British leader to do the same was Tony Blair, who spoke before the Canadian Parliament a decade ago in Ottawa.

The fall session is set to resume sitting on Monday following the summer break.

Cameron, who was in Canada last year for the G20 summit in Toronto, will be speaking in the Canadian House of Commons following his address set for next week at the opening of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper will also be attending the meeting with Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird.
