Secretary of State for International Trade and Business Secretary are out

Liam Fox
Liam Fox, the Secretary of State for International Trade, has left the government. Fox was responsible for negotiating the UK’s trade deals around the globe.

On Twitter, Fox said that the trade department leaves the UK “uniquely well-positioned to forge our new tradition relationships beyond Europe and create a truly Global Britain. But we must first undertake the momentous task of delivering on the instruction of the British people and leave the EU.”

He added that he looks forward to supporting Johnson from the back benches.

(1/4) Sadly, I will be leaving the Government. It has been a privilege to have served as Secretary of State for International Trade these past 3 years.— Dr Liam Fox MP (@LiamFox) July 24, 2019

Business Secretary Greg Clark
Business Secretary Greg Clark announced his departure shortly after Fox.

He wrote on Twitter that Johnson is "right to appoint a new team for a new premiership."

Clark has been vocally opposed to a no-deal Brexit.

I warmly congratulate Boris Johnson on becoming Prime Minister. He is right to appoint a new team for a new premiership and I wish him and them well for the vital work ahead. 1/3— Greg Clark (@GregClarkMP) July 24, 2019
