Raab succeeds Davis as Brexit secretary

It said May now faces "the spectre of a leadership challenge", but it was "possible that after a period of resignations and political blood-letting, the Conservative Party will fall behind the prime minister". All eyes are now on the next move by Brexit hardliners in her centre-right Conservative Party.

"In a vote of confidence in the House of Commons I would support the Prime Minister that's because I don't want to have another General Election, there isn't a vote of confidence in either case at the moment, I don't think many people want another election, we only had one a year ago". "We're now going through two housing ministers a year".

"There is absolutely no appetite for a leadership battle".

But the appointment of Raab, a leading Brexit supporter, suggests Tory Brexiteers are divided.

She told BBC Two's Newsnight: "I think if the Prime Minister makes further concessions with the European Union then there will no doubt be more resignations from Brexiteers in the Cabinet, from junior ministers to PPSs, because there is only so much that you can give in a negotiation". It's a good thing that we have proposals on the table.

"I want to see more detail from the Chequers agreement, but I feel reassured that the main issues have been addressed and delivered, including free movement of people". On the question of what kind of Brexit deal might win the approval of parliament, he was pessimistic. "We need a new minister to continue the great work Gavin Barwell did in supporting investment and in ensuring we have the necessary skilled workforce to build all the homes politicians keep promising voters".

"He added life and colour".

Mr Johnson resigned on Monday as the fallout from May's Brexit plans continued.

Other industry experts were quick to voice their concerns about the sheer number of housing ministers.

"As an ardent Brexiteer, I go for the former".

"It doesn't give us a proper break from the EU", Widdecombe told Xinhua.

While Johnny Caddick, managing director at build-to-rent developer Moda, has called on the government to refocus its attention to the housing market, rather than simply Brexit negotiations and nothing else.

Theresa May raised the prospect of a Jeremy Corbyn-led government to appeal for Tory unity on Brexit.

Trump has long voiced his support for Brexit, saying it was part of a global uprising that ultimately thrust him to power, and he was at his Scottish golf resort the day after Britons voted to leave the European Union, saying the outcome was a "great thing".

Widdecombe, well-known in Britain as being characteristically blunt, served in government under Prime Minister John Major, and in opposition under William Hague, where she was frequently tipped as a future party leader.

Mr Raab supported the Leave campaign in the 2016 European Union referendum and sat on the committee that set strategy for the official Vote Leave campaign. Brexit may sever United Kingdom banks' passporting arrangements, jeopar-dising their ability to operate across Europe and hindering cross-border money transfers, said Nick Voisey, managing director of the LMA, which represents more than 630 organ-isations.
