Theresa May is set to resign as the Conservative leader today, clearing the way for a new prime minister by the end of July.

Mrs May might still try to press on with her new Brexit plan, which includes a vote on whether to hold a second Brexit referendum - once her legislation passes the first stage - as well as closer trading arrangements with the EU.

But that deadline appears to have been brought forward with the announcement she will meet Sir Graham the day after the European Union vote in which the Tories are widely expected to be hammered by Nigel Farage's Brexit Party.

Sir Graham told reporters: "I will be meeting with the Prime Minister on Friday following her campaigning in the European elections... and following that meeting I will be consulting with the 1922 executive".

"My feeling is that she will stay until June 10".

Mrs May has previously agreed to set out the timetable for the contest to replace her after a vote on her latest Brexit deal.

Following Wednesday's resignation of Leader of the House of Commons, Andrea Leadsom, Theresa May's position has now become untenable as Brexiteers in her own party turn on her.

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday night, Mrs Leadsom said Mrs May's new Brexit plan had "elements I can not support, that aren't Brexit".

Mrs May sparked outrage among her party after she confirmed that a second referendum would form part of her withdrawal agreement.

He was understood to be pleased with the delay to the publication of the WAB and neither minister is expected to follow Mrs Leadsom out of the Cabinet.

The Transport Secretary was on the brink of resigning on Tuesday over the Prime Minister's offer of votes on a customs union and second referendum.

The WAB had been due to be published on Friday but that has been delayed in a sign of the chaos at the top of the Government.

And Conservative lawmaker Mark Spencer told the House of Commons the bill will not be published this week.

A replacement Commons Leader is expected to be announced later on Thursday, Downing Street said.

Labour lawmaker Ian Lavery, chair of the opposition party, said the resignation underlined that "the Prime Minister's authority is shot and her time is up".

"Theresa May will be prime minister to welcome him and rightly so", Hunt said.

Digital minister Margot James told the Press Association Mrs May was "being hounded out of office because Parliament will not make a decision and the parties just have an inability to compromise" over Brexit.

May said she was sad to lose someone of Leadsom's "passion, drive and sincerity".

Mrs May appointed Mel Stride as Commons Leader following Mrs Leadsom's departure.
