The chancellor said he would resign from a Johnson government, making the announcement on live television. He told Andrew Marr that he could not serve in a government whose policy was to seek a no-deal Brexit on 31 October. Hammond's announcement followed that of the justice secretary, David Gauke, who said he would quit if Johnson won the leadership contest.
