Liam Fox has been sacked from the Cabinet by Boris Johnson, the new Prime Minister. Fox had served as the Secretary of State for International Trade from 2016 to 2019.
Fox said across four Tweets on Twitter:
Sadly, I will be leaving the Government. It has been a privilege to have served as Secretary of State for International Trade these past 3 years.
I am proud to have worked with a tremendously talented team @tradegovuk to boost trade & investment and prepare for Brexit.
The world-class trade department we have built leaves the UK uniquely well-positioned to forge our new trading relationships beyond Europe and create a truly Global Britain.
But we must first undertake the momentous task of delivering on the instruction of the British people and leave the European Union. I look forward to supporting @BorisJohnson and the government from the backbenches.
