Former Conservative leader Lord Howard has said Theresa May was "absolutely right" to remain as Prime Minister to lead a new administration and called for parliament to support her.
He advised any Conservative colleagues considering mounting a leadership challenge: "Don't think about any such thing - support the Prime Minister."
Lord Howard acknowledged that Mrs May had not run a brilliant election campaign but the Conservatives are "the only viable Government in the new House of Commons".
No one can pretend it was the greatest campaign and obviously the result was disappointing but the thing to do now is to concentrate on the present and the future and that's what I urge everyone to do.
Theresa May is expected to receive a frosty reception when she meets the 1922 Committee later. But what do we know about the group?
The Prime Minister appointed her former leadership rival as Environment Secretary as she confirms her new top team.
He insisted he would be backing Theresa May as leader and has warned MPs to "calm down and get behind the Prime Minister".
