Profiles: Matt Hancock and Jeremy Wright

EPAAndrea Leadsom reportedly said she “hated” the plan but would support Mrs May

Under party rules, 48 Tory MPs - 15% of the party's 316-strong representation in the Commons - must write to the chairman of the backbench 1922 Committee, Sir Graham Brady, to trigger a no-confidence vote.

Mr Buckland said there had been a realisation that "we all hang together or we all hang separately".

The consultation process for these undertakings closed last week and as expected to be made public in the next few days, before Johnson's departure led to the government shake-up.

Johnson had resigned, saying the Brexit "dream is dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt".

Mr Hancock had previously been energy minister, and was criticised for using a private jet to fly home from a climate change conference and accepting money from an organisation that denied climate change.

Brexit Fallout: British foreign secretary resigns over Brexit
But Davis said a leadership challenge would be the "wrong thing to do" and insisted he believed May was a "good prime minister". There was a crisis in government, he said, adding: "It is clear this government can not secure a good deal for Britain".

In Theresa May's latest Cabinet reshuffle, Matt Hancock replaces Jeremy Hunt as Health and Social Care Secretary, with Jeremy Wright replacing him as Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Secretary, Downing Street said.

According to his government website, before entering politics Mr Hancock "worked for his family business, as an economist at the Bank of England, and as chief of staff to the shadow chancellor of the exchequer".

He also invited ridicule earlier this year after launching a new social media app named "Matt Hancock" to connect with his constituents.

Mr Hunt said it was a moment to show that Britain remained a "strong, confident voice in the world".

"The world is looking at us as a country wondering what type of country we're going to be in a post-Brexit world".
