Liz Truss has said it is time to "push the button" on Brexit, as she endorsed Boris Johnson as the "global player" the UK needs to lead it into "uncharted territory".
The Environment Secretary told ITV News Mr Johnson is the "type of person we need" as Prime Minister, as she lauded the "fantastic job" he did as Mayor of London.
The MP for South West Norfolk also called for swift negotiations on Britain's new relationship with the EU.
"In my view the British people have spoken, there's no going back," she said. "We do need to press the button on exit and get on with it, because there would be a huge gap in trust if we were not to deliver on what was a referendum with an incredibly high turnout.
"I personally didn't argue for that but... I believe when the people speak we need to listen and we need to deliver."
easyJet have moved to reassure staff that jobs won't be lost as a result of plans to potentially move their legal headquarters away from the UK.
The airline have confirmed they're looking into moving their legal home from Luton to a European city due to the uncertainty caused by Brexit.
Despite that move, they say that they have "no plans" to leave Luton as their main HQ.
Luton-based airline easyJet has reportedly opened talks with EU governments about moving its HQ away from the UK.
It comes a day after the firm pledged that the headquarters would stay in Luton and that jobs with the company were safe.
Speaking to ITV News Anglia yesterday, Commercial Manager Neil Slaven said that the company is committed to staying in the UK.
"easyJet was born in Luton 20 years ago and we've been very successful operating from Luton over that time," he said.
"We continue to be successful in Luton, and we're absolutely there to stay."
However, Chief Executive Carolyn McCall has apparently suggested in private meetings this week that a move away from Britain is "almost inevitable" as a result of the uncertainty caused by the Brexit vote.
ITV News Anglia has contacted easyJet asking for a statement but has so far received no response.
The company currently employs around 1,000 people at its Bedfordshire base.
EasyJet has confirmed to ITV News Anglia that they will not be moving their headquarters from Luton in the wake of the EU referendum vote.
In an interview this week, the company's CEO Carolyn McCall said it "remains to be seen" if EasyJet's headquarters would stay at Luton Airport given the Brexit vote.
But today EasyJet's Commercial Manager Neil Slaven said the company is committed to keeping its headquarters in the UK, and has no plans to leave Luton.
He also said there are no plans for job losses in the company at Luton, Southend or Stansted airports.
David Cameron's resignation as Prime Minister is a "tragedy", but "inevitable" a Conservative MP has said.

The MP for Northampton North said "calmness and good order" following the outcome of the EU referendum and the volatility of markets as a result.
