According to Mail on Sunday, advisors suspected of being involved in leaks to the media have been told they are on a final warning. February 7 and February 14 are being mooted as likely dates for the reshuffle. A Downing Street source said ministers would get “marks out of ten” based on “ability to deliver the PM’s agenda”.
They explained: “The post-Brexit reshuffle will focus on rewarding competence.
“Delivery will be shown to matter more than profile raising.”
House of Commons leader Jacob Rees-Mogg has been tipped as one who could lose his position.
Mr Rees-Mogg was a regular on TV until he made a comment which appeared to obey the victims of the Grenfell Tower disaster for obeying instructions from the fire service not to leave the building.

Mr Johnson is thought to have cooled on the idea of a “massacre” and radical restructure of Government as called for by Dominic Cummings.
Munira Mirza, head of the number 10 policy unit, has written to all Cabinet members outlining key policy priorities and the criteria they will be judged by.
A source said: “The Prime Minister has been clear that this Government will reward competence and hard work.
“We've been impressed by Cabinet members and junior Ministers who have quietly got on with driving real change within their departments and delivering on the PM's priority to level up our country.”
