Conservative Party leadership contest
Media captionThe names of candidates to officially enter the Conservative leadership race are announced by Dame Cheryl Gillan
The final candidates for the Tory leadership race have been confirmed, with 10 running to become the next PM.
Jeremy Hunt, Dominic Raab, Matt Hancock and Michael Gove - who launched their campaigns ahead of the nomination deadline - are on the final list.
Conservative MPs will now take part in a series of votes to whittle the candidates down to the final two.
The two MPs will then face the wider Tory membership to decide on the next leader of their party, and the country.
Vice chairman of the party's backbench 1922 committee Dame Cheryl Gillan announced the list.
The candidates are:
Environment Secretary Michael Gove
Health Secretary Matt Hancock
Former Chief Whip Mark Harper
Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt
Home Secretary Sajid Javid
Former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson
Former Leader of the House Andrea Leadsom
Former Work and Pensions Secretary Esther McVey
Former Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab
International Development Secretary Rory Stewart
To be allowed to run, the MPs needed to have a proposer, a seconder and the support of six other members.
SamGyimah, the only contender backing another referendum on Brexit, withdrew from the race shortly after nominations closed, saying there was not enough time to build support.
Mrs May officially stepped down as the leader of the Conservative Party last week, but will remain as prime minister until her successor is chosen.

The Campaign for Conservative Democracy confirmed it was establishing a legal fund for Tory associations across the UK to support association officers who want to hold their MPs to account. The move means that Remainer MPs including Dominic Grieve (Beaconsfield), Heidi Allen (South Cambridgeshire), Antoinette Sandbach (Eddisbury), Anna Soubry (Broxtowe), Sarah Wollaston (Totnes), Nick Boles (Grantham), SamGyimah (East Surrey), Nicky Morgan (Loughborough), Phillip Lee (Bracknell) and Justine Greening (Putney) are under threat from being booted out by their associations.
The issue is due to become more heated after a number of Remainer Tory MPs signalled they would back Labour MP Yvette Cooper's amendment to try to, in effect, block Brexit and wrest control of parliamentary business from the Government to achieve that.
The Sunday Express previously revealed a legal fund was being set up to protect associations threatened with suspension by Conservative Central Office over attempts to deselect MPs or block candidates who are opposed to Brexit.
Portsmouth South association was suspended over a row over whether former Remainer MP Flick Drummond should be allowed to run again, while threats were made to Upminster and Hornchurch, and a senior member of the Dagenham and Rainham association over criticism of Mrs May's deal.

British Science Minister quits over Theresa May's Brexit deal; May says UK will not use EU's Galileo for defence
LONDON (REUTERS) - British science and universities minister SamGyimah quit Prime Minister Theresa May's government on Friday (Nov 30), the sixth minister to resign in protest against her proposed Brexit deal with the European Union.
Gyimah, a junior-ranking minister who campaigned in the 2016 vote to keep Britain in the EU, said May's deal meant Britain would surrender its "voice and its veto" and that the Prime Minister should not rule out the prospect of a second referendum.
His resignation represents a further blow to May, who is trying to persuade her own lawmakers to approve the deal she struck with Brussels on Sunday.
May faces criticism from all sides including the Northern Irish party propping up her government, ahead of Britain's departure from the EU in four months.

>>2140979 He looks to be trolling her and the royals. He's got the goods on her "mistakes," and is bringing attention to it by saying she's never made a mistake. Honest to God, it looks like he is kicking butt and taking names in the UK. And laying down the law.
SamGyimah can kiss my ass.

UK pound falls, UK politicians reel after Trump broadside
LONDON (AP) - The British pound fell and U.K. politicians reeled Friday from the tornado-blast of U.S. President Donald Trump, who humiliated Prime Minister Theresa May, dashed hopes of a quick U.S.-U.K. trade deal and praised May's opponents in the high-stakes battle over Brexit.
All in just 24 hours in Britain.
In an interview with The Sun newspaper, Trump slammed May's plans for Britain's departure from the European Union and praised her political rival Boris Johnson, who quit May's Cabinet this week over Brexit differences. He also criticized immigration in Europe and declared that London Mayor Sadiq Khan, a Muslim, had failed to stop terrorism.
The pound fell 0.6 percent to $1.31 after Trump's comments, and May's government struggled to put a brave face on a presidential visit that has veered wildly off course.
"Trump claimed that Theresa May's current Brexit plan 'will probably kill' any potential U.S. trade deal, a comment that not only undermines the prime minister at the end of an already challenging week, but one that understandably sent sterling sharply lower," said Connor Campbell, an analyst at SpreadEx.
In Britain, where vicious differences are often masked by formal politeness, many politicians expressed shock that the U.S. president could be so downright rude.
In one of the milder responses, Universities Minister SamGyimah tweeted: "Where are your manners, Mr. President?"
Labour Party foreign affairs spokeswoman Emily Thornberry said "Donald Trump ought to have listened to his mother."
"I am assuming that his mum told him that when you go to someone's house you do not insult the host," Thornberry said.
Trump's Brexit broadside came as May was trying to shift stalled divorce negotiations with the EU into higher gear. Britain will leave the bloc in March, but the two sides have not yet agreed on what sort of relationship they will have after that.
On Thursday, as Trump flew into Britain, May's government published a plan that includes free trade in goods and a common trade rule book with the EU.
Trump said such a deal "will probably kill" any prospect of a U.S.-U.K. free-trade agreement. Boosting trans-Atlantic trade ties was one of Britain's main goals for Trump's first official visit to the U.K. as president.
May was hosting Trump for talks Friday at her country residence, Chequers, over a lunch of Dover sole, Chiltern lamb and lemon meringue pie.
Trump and his wife Melania will also have tea with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle later Friday.
With considerable optimism, Treasury chief Philip Hammond said May was looking forward to her talks with the president.
"I'm sure there will be a very positive discussion," he said.
But the truth is that Trump's attack could weaken May's already fragile hold on power. Her Conservative government is deeply split between supporters of a clean break with the EU and those who want to keep close ties with the bloc, Britain's biggest trading partner.
Brexit Secretary David Davis and Johnson, the former foreign secretary, both quit this week to protest May's trade plan. Johnson, who helped lead the campaign to take Britain out of the EU, accused May of killing "the Brexit dream."
In his interview, Trump praised Johnson - another unpredictable, talkative populist with a distinctive mop of hair.
"I think he would be a great prime minister. I think he's got what it takes," Trump said.
Trump also renewed his attack on Khan, London's mayor. The two politicians have clashed on Twitter over Trump's ban on immigrants from several mostly Muslim countries and on the president's views on crime and terrorism in Britain.
Trump claimed that London's first Muslim mayor "has done a very bad job on terrorism" and said Khan "has not been very hospitable" to him.
Khan's office gave permission for London protesters to fly a 20-foot (6-meter) balloon depicting the U.S. president as a screaming baby near Parliament as part of nationwide demonstrations Friday against Trump's visit.
Khan noted that other European and American cities had, like London, experienced terrorist attacks.
"And it's for President Trump to explain why he singled me as the mayor of London out and not the mayors of other cities and leaders of other cities," he told Sky News.
Some opposition lawmakers called for the British government to cancel Trump's tea with the queen.
Labour Party lawmaker David Lammy tweeted that Trump "hates that London chose a Muslim mayor. The President is racist. He does not deserve to meet our Queen today #StopTrump."

A UK government minister has handed President Donald Trump an extremely British dressing down over his incendiary interview with The Sun newspaper - by scolding him about his manners.
SamGyimah, the junior minister for universities, science and research, took to Twitter on Friday to ask the visiting statesman: "Where are your manners, Mr President?"

Students will be banned from refusing speakers a platform at their universities under the first government intervention on free speech on campus for 30 years.
SamGyimah, the universities minister, will announce tough guidance on the issue at a meeting today, calling attempts to silence debate "chilling".
He will accuse some student societies of "institutional hostility" to certain unfashionable but perfectly lawful views. A "murky" legal landscape, with guidance from various regulators, lets zealots censor those with whom they disagree, Mr Gyimah will say.
