The Selby and Ainsty MP Nigel Adams has followed Priti Patel and resigned.
Mr Adams, a Boris Johnson loyalist, was a minister of state without portfolio in the Cabinet Office.
Writing to Boris Johnson on his final day in office, Mr Adams said: “Following today’s announcement of a new Conservative Party leader, I am writing to resign my role as a minister as I think that it’s important that a new prime minister is able to appoint a team based on who they want rather than who they inherit.
“I congratulate Liz Truss on her clear victory”.
He added: “Since you announced your intention to stand down I have spoken to many constituents and it is clear to me that those who sought your demise do not understand the values and aspirations of those voters who put their trust in the Conservative Party for the first time in 2019.”
His letter ended: “One thing for sure is that there has never been a dull moment along the way and I am honoured to call you my friend.”
Nigel Adams is not intending to stand at the next election.
