Boris Johnson denies he is preparing to quit the Cabinet over Brexit

Johnson's allies reportedly told The Daily Telegraph that he "could not live with" a Swiss-style Brexit and would resign from the cabinet if this were to be the basis of May's speech in Florence, Italy on Friday.

Mr Johnson is understood to accept the idea of the United Kingdom paying its dues to Brussels during a transition period - but not for continued payments for access to the European single market on a permanent basis.

Johnson told reporters in NY that he would not be resigning, saying: "We are working together, that is the key thing, to make sure that Britain can take advantage of the opportunities of Brexit".

Theresa May has called a special cabinet meeting on Thursday to discuss the final draft of her speech on Brexit in Florence the following day and to seek their approval for it.

Mrs May said: "Boris is doing good work as Foreign Secretary".

Asked whether Johnson had threatened to resign, the spokesman said: "The prime minister has been clear that they're all working together and they're all heading in the same direction".

Boris Johnson would be sacked from the cabinet were it not for Theresa May's weakness in parliament, a veteran Tory MP has said.

One source close to Johnson said the Telegraph's claims that a resignation could be imminent were nonsense and "totally made-up".

"I think you might be barking up the wrong tree".

Earlier on Tuesday, Mr Johnson dismissed suggestions he could quit the Cabinet in protest if Mrs May offers too many concessions to the EU. He told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: 'He shouldn't exploit the fact she hasn't got a majority.

Phil Hogan, the Irish EU agriculture commissioner, said it was clear that the foreign secretary had become a "diminished figure" who was acting "strangely".
