The reports say Javid rejected an order to fire his team of aides, saying "no self-respecting minister" could accept such a condition.

 

He has been replaced as chancellor by chief secretary to the Treasury Rishi Sunak - who just seven months ago was a junior housing minister.

 

The former home secretary, who was appointed chancellor by Johnson when he became prime minister in July, was due to deliver his first budget in four weeks’ time.

 

The government is publishing further details in due course, but has confirmed the below:

  • Dominic Raab MP remains Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, and First Secretary of State.
  • Michael Gove MP remains Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, and Minister for the Cabinet Office.
  • Priti Patel MP remains Secretary of State for the Home Department.
  • The Queen has been graciously pleased to approve the appointment of Rt Hon Rishi Sunak MP as Chancellor of the Exchequer.
  • Rt Hon Robert Buckland QC MP remains Lord Chancellor, and Secretary of State for Justice
  • The Queen has been graciously pleased to approve the appointment of the Rt Hon Alok .Sharma MP as Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. He will also be Minister for COP26.
