Sunak on Tuesday kept finance minister Jeremy Hunt in the crucial post as he started to unveil his top team of ministers. 

Sunak’s predecessor Liz Truss appointed Hunt just 11 days ago in an ultimately futile bid to salvage her faltering premiership. 

Since Rishi Sunak has taken over as prime minister of the UK, several Tory MPs have handed in their resignations amid the ongoing cabinet reshuffle.

According to reports, the UK PM Sunak was also in the House of Commons earlier today.

Here is a list of all the Tory MPs who have quit the government so far: 

1. Jacob Rees-Mogg as Business Secretary 
2. Brandon Lewis as Justice Secretary 
3. Wendy Morton as Chief Whip
4. Chloe Smith as Works and Pensions Secretary 
5. Vicky Ford as Minister of State for Development 
6. Kit Malthouse as Education Secretary 
7. Robert Buckland as Secretary of State for Wales
8. Ranil Jayawardena as Environment Secretary 
9. Simon Clarke as Levelling up Secretary 
10. Jake Berry as Conservative Party Chairman (with no portfolio)

Whereas, Downing Street has indicated that Alok Sharma was removed from the cabinet as Minister of State at the Cabinet Office but will remain COP26 President.
