Three MP’s have reacted in the wake of two high profile Cabinet resignations.

Prime Minister Theresa May is facing one of her toughest battles after Brexit Secretary David Davis and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson quit their roles over May’s Brexit strategy.

The vacant roles have both been filled with Dominic Raab named as Mr Davis’ successor while Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has replaced Mr Johnson.

The resignations have divided the Conservative party and bookies have slashed odds on a General Election being called before the end of the year.

Despite the outcry from a number of her party colleagues, Hertsmere MP Oliver Dowden, Watford MP Richard Harrington, and Three Rivers MP David Gauke have backed Theresa May.

Hertsmere MP Oliver Dowden says Theresa May’s proposals do ensure the UK leaves the EU.

He said: “In any deal, compromise is necessary. But the Prime Minister’s proposals ensure we leave the EU, regain control of immigration policy and restore the primacy of Parliament over our laws. At the same time they ensure that we meet concerns of workers and businesses over ease of trade with Europe.

“I therefore support them and am sorry David Davis and Boris Johnson felt they could not.”

Watford MP Richard Harrington has expressed his "full support" for the under-fire Prime Minister.

He said: “The Prime Minister has my full support. She has presented a fair compromise, which ensures that businesses can move goods and services freely and easily, whilst also respecting the desire not to be part of European institutions, and giving the flexibility for us to trade worldwide. This is a proposal that puts businesses and jobs first, allowing Watford and the UK to continue to prosper.”

Meanwhile, Justice Secretary and Three Rivers MP David Gauke warned Tory Eurosceptics that a "no- deal" Brexit was "not an attractive option at all".

While insisting that the option cannot be ruled out, Mr Gauke told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme this morning: "It's a negotiation and that requires compromises from both sides if we are to reach an agreement which is in the best interests of the United Kingdom and the best interest of the EU 27."

“What I would say to those of my colleagues, if there are some who think this is pain free and this is just something that we can ride over very easily, is no deal will have a negative impact on our constituents, on the British public.

"It is not an attractive option at all, which is why we should try to move these negotiations forward.

"But, of course, one cannot rule that out at this stage and we have to be prepared for it."
