Rishi Sunak is currently reorganizing his ministerial team in order to “strengthen” the government’s ability to make long-term decisions for a more promising future.
He desired for Suella Braverman to depart the government, but she was not given a different position.
According to Mason, even if she had been given a lower position, it is improbable that she would have accepted it.
Suella Braverman has been fired.
According to the BBC, it appears that the event will occur today. Politico has stated that certain sources are claiming there is a 90% likelihood of this happening.
It is possible that a restructuring may result in Suella Braverman, the home secretary, being fired or demoted, as well as other changes being made.
Peter Walker reports that Braverman has called for additional measures to be taken against pro-Palestine demonstrations. In response, centrist Conservative members of parliament have shared their disappointment with Sunak’s decision to postpone firing her.
This is the schedule for today.
At 11:30am, there will be a lobby briefing held by No 10.
At 2:30pm, Mel Stride, the Secretary for Work and Pensions, will be answering questions in the House of Commons.
At 3:30pm, Members of Parliament continue their discussion on the king’s speech, with a particular focus on health.
