Michael Gove told ITV News he was "privileged" to be part of the Prime Minister's Cabinet shortly before it was announced he has been removed as Education Secretary during the reshuffle.
"Every job in Cabinet is there on the basis of the Prime Minister's decision about who is the best individual to do any individual job," he said.
Mr Gove, who takes up the role as Commons Chief Whip, also paid tribute to William Hague as a "fantastic Foreign Secretary".
