Nicky Morgan has said the Government must get on with triggering Article 50, but criticised it for only agreeing to publish a plan on Brexit after the Prime Minister faced pressure from Labour MPs and those within her own party.
It is "not good enough that these things are dragged out of the Government by opposition day motions," the former education secretary said, adding that the Government must take "more of the initiative".
Ms Morgan added that it was "important that we do not close off options before we have to do so", and said EU nationals living in the UK should be given assurances that they can stay post-Brexit.
Nicky Morgan will not be continuing in her role as education secretary.
The former minister tweeted her disappointment at the decision, ahead of her expected sacking.

Teachers are putting children's education at risk and disrupting parents by taking "unnecessary" strike action, Nicky Morgan has told Good Morning Britain.
The education secretary denied claims the government was cutting funding, saying the schools budget was the highest it has even been.
She said less than a quarter of members of the National Union of Teachers (NUT) had voted for strike action, which she claimed represented less than 10% of the total teaching profession.
Morgan also said the government would re-engage in talks with the NUT to "air all the issues".
"This strike is unnecessary, it is putting children's education at risk and inconveniencing parents."
Teachers across England are staging a 24-hour strike in a long-running dispute with the Government over the "underfunding" of schools.Read the full story ›

Nicky Morgan has told Peston on Sunday that the next leader of the Tory party and prime minister must come from the Brexit camp.
Morgan considered running for the leadership but instead backed Michael Gove.
The education secretary said it was "important" that a candidate who wanted to leave the EU and had "top-flight Cabinet experience" replaced David Cameron.
"We are facing the one of the gravest times for our country probably since the 1940s," she added.
