The MP for North East Bedfordshire, Alistair Burt, has been named as a potential replacement for the International Development Secretary, Priti Patel.
She was forced to resign yesterday for holding undeclared meetings with Israeli officials.
Mr Burt is currently a minister of state at both the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the Department for International Development.
He backed the Remain campaign in the EU referendum in 2016, unlike Ms Patel, who voted Leave.
An announcement by Theresa May is expected soon.
