HOC STRONG & STABLE Theresa May is standing firm following the resignations of Davis and Johnson

Tuesday's meeting comes after Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Brexit Secretary David Davis quit, saying May's plans for future relations with the European Union don't live up to their idea of Brexit.

Embattled British Prime Minister Theresa May has sought to curb the growing turmoil around her leadership with the appointment of United Kingdom health secretary Jeremy Hunt as the new foreign secretary to replace Boris Johnson.

Britain's new Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs Jeremy Hunt arrives at the Foreign Office in central London, Britain, July 9, 2018.

Johnson resigned on Monday, adding to divisions over Brexit that threaten to tear apart May's government.

"This afternoon, the Prime Minister accepted the resignation of Boris Johnson as Foreign Secretary".

The fallout from recent Brexit related resignations has triggered another round of musical chairs and resulted in the UK Government replacing Matt Hancock MP at the helm of the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) with Jeremy Wright QC (MP for Kenilworth and Southam). After Johnson's departure she said she was "sorry and a little surprised" at his decision after ministers appeared to back her proposals.

Mr Buckland said there had been a realisation that "we all hang together or we all hang separately". "I am deeply concerned at the position of the British government and urge them to embrace this vital issue".

Aside from the loyalty which MPs naturally feel towards their leader, many are concerned that Mrs May's removal could plunge the party into chaos, with no obvious replacement lined up, potentially setting the scene for Jeremy Corbyn to seize power in a new general election.

At a Cabinet meeting Friday, May demanded members support a plan for Brexit that it would include Britain partly remaining in the single market and signing up to a "common rulebook" for goods.

"I'd be interested to see the actual white paper because there may be some nuances in it which may make people feel a bit happier", she told Sky News.

Brexit minister Steve Baker and unpaid parliamentary aides Conor Burns and Chris Green also resigned.

May was forced to reshuffle her cabinet after Boris Johnson put in his papers on Monday.

Earlier Downing Street announced that Housing Minister Dominic Raab, a staunch Brexiteer, was taking over from Mr Davis as Brexit Secretary.

If she chose to fight, she would need the support of more than 50% of Conservative MPs - now 159 - in the confidence vote to stay in office.
