Sajid Javid has been appointed chancellor and Priti Patel home secretary as Boris Johnson names his new cabinet this evening.
Downing Street said: “The Queen has been pleased to approve the appointment of the Rt Hon Sajid Javid MP as Chancellor of the Exchequer.”
It comes after a slew of resignations and sackings today of MPs who served in Theresa May’s cabinet.
Boris Johnson used his first speech as PM to insist that Brexit will be delivered, and that he will give the country “the leadership it deserves”.
Speaking outside 10 Downing Street after being invited by the Queen to form a government, the Tory leader said he would meet the October 31 deadline “no ifs or buts”.
He said: “I am standing before you today, to tell you the British people, that those critics are wrong – the doubters, the doomsters, the gloomsters are going to get it wrong again.”
