PM Theresa May new Cabinet

May spent her first full day as prime minister by appointing more politicians to her front bench, at the same time firing a number of well-known politicians, including Justice Secretary Michael Gove.
Leadsom pulled out of the race over the leadership of the governing Conservative Party on Monday, leaving May as the only contender..
Andrea Leadsom, former minister of state at the department of energy and climate change, was named as secretary of state for environment,food and rural affairs, giving her a major job in May’s Downing Street cabinet.
Boris Johnson has been made foreign secretary.
Philip Hammond who was made Chancellor of the Exchequer.
Justice Secretary is  Liz Truss. Education Secretary is  Justine Greening.
Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt, caught up in a major wrangle with junior doctors over new working conditions in the NHS, has kept his job.
Chris Grayling, who ran May’s leadership campaign, has also won a cabinet role as Secretary of State for Transport.
Chancellor Philip Hammond ruled out an emergency budget. Hammond said there would be a normal autumn statement in the fall, and a regular budget next spring.Hammond said in a media interview that the British economy was entering a new phase because of the vote to leave the EU, admitting the referendum decision of June 23 had had a chilling short-term effect on the economy.”It has shaken confidence and caused many businesses to pause investment decisions that they were making,” said Hammond, adding the government now needed to send signals of reassurance about the future as quickly and as powerful as it can.
Downing Street tel-bells  have continued to ring all day with messages of congratulation for May, who has become the second female prime minister in British history. Among the phone calls received by May were ones from German ChancellorAngela Merkel, French President Francois Hollande and Irish Taoiseach Enda Kenny.
May also had a 15 minutes telephone conversation with U.S. President Barack Obama. May’s spokeswoman said the prime minister “underlined her commitment to be a key partner with the United States.”
