Stephen Barclay has been named as the new Brexit secretary, Downing Street has said.
The former health minister is the third person to take on the role after Dominic Raab resigned over Theresa Mays Brexit agreement yesterday.
Barclay has mentioned Brexit just 10 times in parliament – seven times during the same debate.
The former Barclays bank directors appointment came after both Geoffrey Cox Michael Gove and reportedly turned down the post.
Barclay, MP for North East Cambridgeshire since 2010, voted to leave during the 2016 referendum.
The role was first held by David Davis who quit in July over Theresa Mays Chequers plan to keep close trade ties with the EU after Brexit.
He handed in his resignation after slamming the governments approach to Brexit and the prime ministers plan to leave the EU.
Raab took over, but resigned on Thursday in protest at the new Brexit draft plans and said he cannot in good conscience support the terms proposed for our deal with the EU.
Downing Street said in a statement today: The Queen has been pleased to approve the appointment of Stephen Barclay MP to be Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union.
In a further reduction to the Brexit secretarys duties, it was revealed that May will in future take sole control of negotiations on EU withdrawal.
Mr Barclays job will be limited to the domestic delivery of EU withdrawal, preparations for Brexit either with or without a deal and shepherding legislation through parliament.
The announcement came shortly after it was revealed Amber Rudd takes over as the new work and pensions secretary after Esther McVey resigned alongside Raab yesterday.
Stephen Hammond takes over Barclays role as health minister and Kwasi Kwarteng has taken the role as Parliamentary Under Secretary of State in the Brexit department.
Hammond, Wimbledon MP, was sacked as Conservative vice-chairman in December after backing a rebel amendment calling for Parliament to be guaranteed a meaningful vote on the Brexit deal.
Brexiteer Kwarteng will move from the Treasury to replace Suella Braverman, who followed Raab out of the door on Thursday.
Former tourism minister John Penrose has been made a minister in the Northern Ireland office to replace Shailesh Vara, who also resigned on Thursday.
Gove, who declined the role said he would only take it if he could renegotiate the EU withdrawal agreement, said he absolutely had confidence in the prime minister.
He added: I believe that the regulatory regime proposed for Northern Ireland presents a very real threat to the integrity of the United Kingdom.
I cannot support an indefinite backstop arrangement, where the EU holds a veto over our ability to exit.
The terms of the backstop amount to a hybrid of the EU Customs Union and Single Market obligations.
No democratic nation has ever signed up to be bound by such an extensive regime, imposed externally without any democratic control over the laws to be applied, nor the ability to decide to exit the arrangement.
He added: I am looking forward to continuing to work with all colleagues in government and in parliament to get the best future for Britain.
A Downing Street spokeswoman said May was very pleased that Gove will stay on and continue doing the important work he is doing.
