Theresa May set to refresh members in cabinet reshuffle


The Old Bexley and Sidcup MP is a close ally of Mrs May, having served under her for five years at the Home Office, and he was not among ministers who were predicted to go in the UK Prime Minister's first major reshuffle since she took office.

It's believed to be the most extensive reshuffle of the PM's top team since she appointed her first Cabinet on entering Downing Street in 2016.

Also at risk of demotion are Greg Clark, the business secretary, and Andrea Leadsom, the leader of the Commons.

The Sunday Times said foreign minister Boris Johnson, finance minister Philip Hammond, interior minister Amber Rudd and Brexit minister David Davis would not lose their jobs in the reshuffle.

As first secretary of state, he was effectively deputy prime minister, standing in for May at PMQs and playing a key coordinating role behind the scenes, chairing a series of Cabinet committees.
