But security sources have warned against giving the former Defence Secretary any job that gives him access to sensitive information following his dismissal over a National Security Council leak.

It has sparked a row within BoJo’s camp, as it would bar him from holding a string of top posts.

Insiders say the alert was raised by Cabinet Secretary Sir Mark Sedwill.

But a source in Mr Johnson’s camp insists the mandarin has confirmed that Mr Williamson was not the source of the leak.
