Britain's new finance minister Rishi Sunak: Key facts

Sajid Javid resigns after Number 10 orders him to sack his aides | Latest Brexit news and top stories

It comes as chatter increases in Westminster about the role and power Dominic Cummings has as the Prime Minister's chief special adviser.

Dominic Cummings wanted to get rid of Sajid Javid for some time.

Mr Javid said that "no self-respecting minister" could accept the condition being imposed.

Johnson's office had earlier said the Cabinet changes would be modest, and apart from Javid most senior ministers kept their jobs.

The Prime Minister allegedly told Mr Javid that he had to fire his advisers, and replace them with advisers from Number 10 to create a joint team, which Mr Javid was not prepared to do.

The pound briefly retreated on Javid's departure but soon recovered as analysts said the new chancellor could open the way for more public spending and growth.

Javid had been due to deliver his annual budget in less than a month.

"A government in chaos within weeks of an election", he tweeted.

- Andrea Leadsom was sacked as business secretary.

Theresa Villiers and Esther McVey also found themselves out of the Cabinet as environment secretary and housing minister.

Going forward, he said, "I think there needs to be a discussion on norms of behavior and on responsible behavior in space". Space enthusiast Michael Thompson raised concerns about Cosmos 2542's maneuvers on Twitter late last month.

Smith, who had been in charge of parliamentary discipline for Johnson's predecessor, Theresa May, was the first minister to lose his job in the reshuffle.

As well as reworking his Cabinet, Johnson appointed a new leader for the United Nations climate change conference that Britain is due to host later this year.

Brandon Lewis was appointed as Northern Ireland Secretary.

Indian-origin politician Rishi Sunak was appointed as the UK's new finance minister on Thursday by Prime Minister Boris Johnson in a Cabinet reshuffle.

Richmond MP Rishi Sunak is to become the next Chancellor of the Exchequer - the second-highest job in the Government behind the Prime Minister.

The pound jumped on Javid's resignation.

Speculation about Mr Smith's position centred on the terms of the Stormont deal, amid Tory concerns it could pave the way for prosecutions of British soldiers.

The finance minister resigned after a face-to-face row with Johnson inside 10 Downing Street.

Before the shock announcement about the occupier of 11 Downing Street, a number of other ministers were removed from their roles.

There are also expectations Sunak's appointment could see Johnson's government loosen the purse strings further than likely under Javid.
