Anne Milton resigns as Education Minister ahead of Tory leadership announcement

Anne Milton resigns as Education Minister ahead of Tory leadership announcement

Once again we do not have a minister 

Having abstained in the vote last week, today I have resigned from the Government.  It has been an honour to serve on the Conservative front benches, my thanks to everyone I have had the pleasure of working alongside.

THE UK’S SKILLS and Apprenticeships Minister Ann Milton has resigned from the role, saying she has “grave concerns about leaving the EU without a deal”.

“And so I feel it’s time for me to return to the backbenches,”she wrote in a letter to Theresa May today.

“This has not been an easy decision for me to make… [but] we must leave the EU in a responsible manner.” 

She joins other members of government including Chancellor of the Exchequer Philip Hammond who have said they will resign if Johnson becomes Prime Minister due to his support of a no-deal Brexit.
