Former prime minister David Cameron’s autobiography –  For The Record – will be published in the autumn, its publisher has said.

The book will be released on September 19 – a month before the October 31 date the EU has given the Government to get a Brexit deal through Parliament.

He will give “for the first time, his perspective on the EU referendum and his views on the future of Britain’s place in the world in the light of Brexit”.

Publisher William Collins tweeted: “We are pleased to announce that @WmCollinsBooks will publish former Prime Minister David Cameron’s autobiography this autumn.

“For The Record will be released on Thursday 19th September, in hardback, ebook and audio.”

In a statement, it added: “In For the Record, he will explain how the governments he led transformed the UK economy while implementing a modern, compassionate agenda that included reforming education and welfare, legalising gay marriage, honouring the UK’s commitment to overseas aid and spearheading environmental policies.

“He will shed light on the seminal world events of his premiership – the Arab Spring; the rise of ISIS; the invasion of Ukraine; the conflicts in Libya, Iraq and Syria – as well as events at home, from the Olympic Games in 2012 to the Scottish referendum.”

Mr Cameron was reported to have bought a £25,000 shepherd’s hut to provide him with a place in his Oxfordshire garden to write the book.

Last month it was reported he had given Theresa May a private understanding that he would not publish the autobiography until after Britain had left the European Union.
