But Philip Hammond, Boris Johnson, Amber Rudd and David Davis are among key figures expected to stay in place.

Jeremy Hunt retains responsibility for health, but has had social care added to his Cabinet title in a sign that the issue will be taken seriously at the highest level of Government.

"One is to demonstrate that she did indeed have a degree of authority as prime minister - the authority that has been weak ever since last June when she lost the overall majority in the snap election that she called".

Greening becomes the fourth minister since November to leave the government, after deputy prime minister Damian Green, defence secretary Michael Fallon and aid minister Priti Patel were forced out in unrelated scandals.

It was then revealed shortly after that Brandon Lewis, the current immigration minister, will become party chairman and attend Cabinet meetings as a "Minister without Portfolio".

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon described Mr Davis's "moaning" as "extraordinary" given the Government has set aside £3.7 billion to prepare to leave the European Union without an agreement, and has repeatedly stated that "no deal is better than a bad deal".

After months of reshuffle speculation, when the time came, Theresa May's ministers couldn't be budged - not the ones that truly matter at least.

So, the newspaper's sources said that their posts may lose the education Minister Justine greening, the Conservative party Chairman Patrick MacLachlan, the leader of the house of Commons Andrea Leeds, transport Minister Chris Grayling and Minister for business, energy and industrial strategy Greg Clark, since they are all considered "inefficient ballast".

"No wonder Theresa May's struggling to negotiate Brexit - she can't even organise a reshuffle", opposition Labour MP Stephen Kinnock swiftly tweeted.

Brown's final California budget stashes billions in reserve
The state senator went on to say that the governor "has continued his record of proposing thoughtful spending ". Saving money now will protect teachers' jobs and tamp down on college tuition hikes down the road, he said.

American Red Cross asks for blood donations nationwide
Power Red donors give a concentrated dose of red blood cells during a single donation, allowing them to maximize their impact. Winter is usually a slow time for blood donors, because of the hectic holiday schedules and cold and flu season.

The reshuffle, which will continue into tomorrow, is being seen as an opportunity for May to promote more women, with female ministers only now making up six of the 23 full members of her top team.

May's room for manouevre is limited by the fragility of her minority government and the need to maintain the delicate Cabinet balance of eurosceptic and pro-European ministers as major Brexit decisions loom.

Johnson, a leading Brexit supporter, kept his job at the foreign office, despite challenging May's strategy previous year, as did fellow eurosceptic Liam Fox, the worldwide trade minister.

After starting the two-year withdrawal process in March last year, Britain struck a deal in December on the financial settlement with Brussels, as well as on expatriate rights and the Irish border.

United Kingdom prime minister Theresa May will switch up her Cabinet on Monday, Downing Street has confirmed.

The UK delegation will include Nigel Farage, an MEP, who said on British radio on Sunday that he represented "the views of the 17.4 million people who stood up against the establishment" to vote to leave the EU.

Former work and pensions secretary David Gauke has taken over the roles of Lord Chancellor and Justice Secretary vacated by Lidington.

Her shuffle was complicated by the resignation of the United Kingdom's minister for Northern Ireland amid a long-running political crisis in Belfast.
