According to reports, the move marked the climax in a power-struggle between Javid and Boris Johnson's chief advisor Dominic Cummings, with the Chancellor reportedly nicknamed "CHINO" - "Chancellor in name only" by Cummings and his allies.

In a surprise move, Britain's finance minister, Sajid Javid, submitted his resignation just weeks after Brexit and one month before he was set to deliver the government's annual budget.

Johnson's aides had previously played down suggestions, based on Johnson's senior adviser Dominic Cummings's well-publicized desire to see a radical reorganization of government, that there would be major changes.

"Extensive preparations have already been carried out for the Budget and they will continue at pace", he said.

Chief Secretary to the Treasury Rishi Sunak has been named as his replacement.

Javid smiled as he entered the prime minister's 10 Downing St. office on Thursday morning to meet Johnson along with other ministers who were being promoted or kept in place.

He was Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Local Government in the Theresa May government.

"The Chancellor said no self-respecting minister would accept those terms".

The BBC's Business Editor Simon Jack said the prime minister suspected Javid might resign if pushed to get rid of his advisers and he described Sunak as an "oven-ready" Chancellor.

They all originated from a female worker who was sent to Wuhan in central China - where the virus originated - for training. The commune is situated in Vietnam's northern Vinh Phuc province, where 11 of the country's 16 cases have been reported .

The former chancellor chose to quit instead and was replaced by his former deputy at the Treasury Rishi Sunak.

The UK PM has also sacked Northern Ireland Secretary Julian Smith, who had been widely praised for helping to end a political deadlock that left Northern Ireland without a regional government and assembly for three years.

"He is going to be a fantastic Chancellor".

Along with the ministerial exits, the reshuffle - which Downing Street insiders had predicted would be "conventional" before the row with Mr Javid - included promotions for MPs who are highly rated by Number 10.

Anne-Marie Trevelyan joined the Cabinet as International Development Secretary, having previously been a defence minister.

George Eustice was promoted to environment secretary from his previous role in the same department.

Esther McVey lost her role as housing minister, and the total number of women attending Cabinet fell from eight to seven - while the total number of ministers attending shrank from 32 to 26.

Former Brexit minister Suella Braverman returns to the government as attorney general. Some key ministers escaped the chop, including Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, Home Secretary Priti Patel and the leader of the House of Commons Jacob Rees-Mogg.
