“I was elected by the Conservative Party with a mandate to change this, we delivered on energy bills and on cutting National Insurance.

‘And we set out a vision for a low-tax high-growth economy that would take advantage of the freedoms of Brexit.

‘I recognise though, given the situation, I cannot deliver the mandate on which I was elected by the Conservative Party.

‘I have therefore spoken to his Majesty the King to notify him that I am resigning as leader of the Conservative Party.

‘This morning I met the Chairman of the 1922 Committee, Sir Graham Brady.

‘We have agreed there will be a leadership election to be completed within the next week.

‘This will ensure we remain on the path to deliver our fiscal plans and maintain our country’s economic stability and national security.

‘I will remain as PM until a successor has been chosen, thank you.’
