BREXIT SUPPORTER AND CONSERVATIVE LAWMAKER THERESA VILLIERS:
"The new Conservative leader needs to bring the party back together and provide real leadership and direction. He or she should immediately seek improved exit terms from the EU. We need to get Brexit done and move on from the divisions it has caused in the party and the country."
PENSIONS SECRETARY AMBER RUDD:
"As a party, we must come together to make a success of the next phase of our party's great story. Brexit is a process and compromise is needed to pass a Deal that works for everyone."
SCOTTISH SECRETARY DAVID MUNDELL:
"Yesterday's elections will surely show that delivering Brexit is now more urgent than ever, and that will fall to a new Prime Minister. It's time to get on with the process of appointing one."
LABOUR LAWMAKER JOHN MANN:
"The parliamentary arithmetic will be the same on June 10 as before. No majority for a general election. No majority for compromise. No MP majority for leaving the EU, ignoring the reality that yesterday the public voted with their behinds, by sitting on them."
