As the race to become the next¬† conservative leader starts off in earnest, some of the potential candidates have removed themselves from the competition as they have failed to get the 30 backers required in order to appear on the ballot, or have decided that the chance to become Prime Minister isn’t a good fit for them.

Votes have been announced with Round 1 being held on Wednesday 13th July and Round 2 being held on Thursday the 14th of July.

We’ll keep this article updated with who’s in and who’s out and the field of ten gets whittled down until the final two.
