British Prime Minister Theresa May will reshuffle her cabinet on Monday, with junior ministerial jobs being reassigned on Tuesday, a media report said.

The reshuffle comes after two resignations and one sacking from the Prime Minister’s cabinet in the last two months.

Downing Street refused to comment on possible changes on Saturday evening but it is understood that the foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, the chancellor, Philip Hammond, the Brexit secretary, David Davis, and the home secretary, Amber Rudd, would all be continuing in their posts.

Michael Fallon was the first to resign from his post of Defence Secretary in November 2017 amid allegations around his conduct.

One week later, Priti Patel quit her job as International Development Secretary, after a row over unauthorised meetings with Israeli officials.

First Secretary of State Damian Green – one of May’s closest allies – was then fired from his position in December after making “misleading statements” to the press about pornography found on his office computer in 2008.

It is known that the Prime Minister was looking to replace her close friend and ally Damian Green at the Cabinet Office after he was forced to quit. Green was told to step down as first secretary of state after he admitted lying about the discovery of pornographic images on his Commons computer during a police raid. He was the third minister to be forced from office following resignations by the Fallon, and Priti Patel.
