Amber Rudd returns to Cabinet after quitting over Windrush row

Amber Rudd returns to Cabinet as Work and Pensions Secretary

She has suffered the loss of four ministers and faces continued speculation that a vote of no confidence in her leadership could be triggered by Tory MPs within days.

Rudd had resigned as home secretary in April, saying she had "inadvertently misled" MPs over the Windrush scandal.

According to the paper, Michael Gove and other Leave-supporting ministers chose to stay in their posts to lead the campaign for a "better Brexit" from inside the cabinet.

Rudd will replace Esther McVey who stood down from the position yesterday.

In an interview for the paper, she reveals that he poured her a whisky when she returned to their Downing Street flat after the marathon cabinet meeting on Wednesday that sparked a revolt against her Brexit deal.

Mr Barclay's appointment came after Mr Gove reportedly turned down the post after saying he would only take it if he could renegotiate the European Union withdrawal agreement.

He has been congratulated on Twitter by Chief Secretary to the Treasury Liz Truss, who said he was "a star" when he worked in her department. "But I now believe it is time she stepped aside".

But her appointment was met with outrage from Labour.

The new Minister for "breccia" the Prime Minister has appointed Stephen Barclay, after in protest the Cabinet left Dominic Raab.

The BBC's Iain Watson said it was a huge job given the controversy surrounding universal credit, the government's flagship welfare reform.

She apologised after it emerged that some migrants from Commonwealth countries, who were encouraged to settle in the United Kingdom from the late 1940s to 1973, were being wrongly declared illegal immigrants.

But a report into the row found officials had repeatedly given her the wrong information and then failed to clear up the problem so that she could correct the record.

Asked what Mrs May would say to victims of the Windrush scandal who might feel the Hastings & Rye MP's rehabilitation had come too soon, the PM's official spokesman said: "The government has apologised, the Prime Minister and Home Secretary apologised for the Windrush scandal ... work is ongoing to make sure those people are properly compensated".

A Remain supporter during the 2016 referendum, Ms Rudd has given her backing to Mrs May's draft Brexit agreement, saying it is "not flawless but ideal was never on offer".
