Theresa May's Cabinet reshuffle: Who resigned, who was sacked and who was appointed today?


There's been yet more movement in Downing Street today as Theresa May filled up her Cabinet.

Here's who's in and who's out.

1. Chancellor

George Osborne and Philip Hammond.

Out: George Osborne In: Philip Hammond

In one swift announcement, George Osborne was out and former foreign secretary Philip Hammond was in as Chancellor of the Exchequer.

He has previously served as transport secretary and defence secretary.

The "reassuringly boring" choice, Hammond, 60, studied philosophy, politics and economics at Oxford University and is believed to have a devout belief in economic stability and prudent public finances.

2. Home Secretary

Amber Rudd.

In: Amber Rudd (replacing Theresa May)

As May settles in to her new role as PM, Amber Rudd came to politics later in life than most, having worked as an investment banker, venture capitalist and financial journalist.

The former secretary of state for the Department of Energy and Climate Change was a loud voice for Remain during the EU referendum.

The 52-year-old appeared to support the new PM over her own junior minister, Andrea Leadsom, in the race for the Tory leadership.

3. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson

Boris Johnson.

In: Boris Johnson (replacing Philip Hammond)

Boris Johnson wanted the top job but pulled out of the race when Michael Gove made a surprise announcement that he was to run for PM.

His political fortunes have turned following May's decision to give him one of the most sought-after roles in the Cabinet as Hammond moves on to become Chancellor.

The 52-year-old former mayor of London's appointment could be seen as somewhat unexpected, having been prone to more than the odd gaffe overseas down the years.

4. Transport Secretary

House of Commons Chris Grayling.

In: Chris Grayling (replacing Patrick McLoughlin)

Former leader of the House of Commons, Chris Grayling has been made Transport Secretary following in the footsteps of Patrick McLoughlin who takes on the role of Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster.

Grayling, 54, has been an MP since 2001 and has held several cabinet and shadow cabinet positions.

The Brexiteer backed Theresa May's leadership bid. Grayling is a Cambridge graduate and worked as a journalist before entering politics.

5. Leader of the House of Lords

Baroness Stowell and Baroness Evans.

Out: Baroness Stowell In: Baroness Evans

Natalie Evans, Baroness Evans of Bowes Park, was made a life peer just two years ago, having previously been deputy director of the Conservative Research Department.

The 40-year-old Cambridge graduate will now be responsible for organising government business in the House of Lords.

She takes on the role from Baroness Stowell of Beeston.

6. Health Secretary

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt.

Staying: Jeremy Hunt

In a surprise posting, the Health Secretary has kept his job.

Hunt, 49, who has been heavily criticised for imposing a new contract for junior doctors, will remain in the role he has held for four years.

He is a philosophy, politics and economics graduate of Oxford University and was elected as an MP in 2005.

7. Tory Party chairman and Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster

Oliver Letwin and Patrick McLoughlin.

Out: Oliver Letwin In: Patrick McLoughlin

The ex-transport secretary has taken on Oliver Letwin's former role - putting him in overall charge of the Cabinet Office.

McLoughlin, 58, worked in agriculture and as a coal miner before being elected as a councillor.

He became MP for Derbyshire Dales in 1986 and served as chief whip before assuming the role of transport secretary.

8. Chief Whip

Mark Harper and Gavin Williamson.

Out: Mark Harper In: Gavin Williamson

David Cameron's former parliamentary private secretary said he was "very surprised" to be made Chief Whip.

The 40-year-old, who is reportedly well-liked within the Tory Party, has taken on Mark Harper's former role.

The relatively unknown MP for South Staffordshire was state-educated before studying for a BSc in social sciences at the University of Bradford.

9. Education Secretary

Nicky Morgan and Justine Greening.

Out: Nicky Morgan In: Justine Greening

She was international development secretary before being given Nicky Morgan's old portfolio.

Yorkshire-born Greening was state-educated and studied economics at Southampton University. She worked as an accountant and finance manager before winning the seat of Putney in the 2005 general election.

In June, the 47-year-old revealed she was in a "happy same-sex relationship", and tweeted: "I campaigned for Stronger In but sometimes you're better off out!".

10. Justice Secretary

Michael Gove and Liz Truss.

Out: Michael Gove In: Liz Truss

The former environment secretary filled the boots of Michael Gove in the reshuffle.

Truss, who studied philosophy, politics and economics at Oxford University, worked as a management accountant before entering politics.

The 40-year-old once described the political views of her parents as "to the left of Labour" and said her father was "horrified" when he discovered she had joined the Conservatives.

11. Defence Secretary

Michael Fallon.

Staying: Michael Fallon

He had been tipped as a possible candidate for promotion but May appeared to give her seal of approval to his work in the past two years by keeping Fallon, 64, in his current role.

12. Secretary of State for Brexit

David Davis.

New role: David Davis

In holding the newly created role, Davis will be front and centre in the negotiations for Britain's exit from the EU.

The 67-year-old has previously published what he described as a "Brexit economic strategy for Britain".

Davis has served as Foreign Office minister and shadow home secretary.

13. International Trade Secretary

Liam Fox.

New role: Liam Fox

He was forced to resign from his role as defence secretary in 2011 after allowing his friend and best man Adam Werritty to take on an unofficial and undeclared role as his adviser.

Five years on, he has been welcomed back into the ranks by the new Prime Minister.

Fox, 54, ran in the Tory leadership contest but was quick to back May when he was eliminated in the first round.

14. Environment Secretary

Andrea Leadsom.

In: Andrea Leadsom (replacing Liz Truss)

She had hoped to become the new prime minister, but after dropping out of the race Leadsom has been made Secretary of State for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

She was elected as MP for South Northamptonshire in 2010, having previously worked in the financial sector.

15. Work and Pensions Secretary

He was minister of state for police and criminal justice until 2014, but now Green will head up Stephen Crabb's old office.

16. Communities Secretary

Sajid Javid.

Sajid Javid (replacing Greg Clark)

The former business secretary has been given the role of Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government.

Javid, who held the culture secretary position before being appointed to the business role last year, is a former managing director of Deutsche Bank.

The 46-year-old University of Exeter graduate stood on a "joint ticket" with Stephen Crabb for the leadership election, hoping to be chancellor if Crabb had become PM.

17. Northern Ireland Secretary

Theresa Villiers and James Brokenshire.

Out Theresa Villiers In: James Brokenshire

Former minister for security and immigration James Brokenshire has taken on Theresa Villiers's old post.

Villiers resigned from the role after May offered her another role which she felt she could not take on.

The constituency was dissolved and he then became MP for Old Bexley and Sidcup in 2010.

18. Business Secretary

Greg Clark.

In: Greg Clark (replacing Sajid Javid)

He was the communities secretary, but Clark will now take on the business portfolio.

He follows Javid in the role which will see him manage strategy and policy across the business department.

He has also held the post of universities secretary and financial secretary to the treasury.

Bradley, 46, is a mathematics graduate of Imperial College London and went on to work as a tax manager.

21. Welsh Secretary

Alun Cairns.

Staying: Alun Cairns

He was appointed as Welsh Secretary just four months ago so there is little surprise that Cairns will retain his position.

The 45-year-old who was born in Swansea, is a graduate of the University of Wales, Newport, and was elected as MP for the Vale of Glamorgan in 2010.

He worked in banking for a decade before his election to the Welsh Assembly.

22. Scotland Secretary

David Mundell.

Staying: David Mundell

The Conservatives' only MP north of the border faces an interesting time as the SNP government in Edinburgh seeks a second independence referendum post Brexit.
