Mr Grayling said it was “more likely than not the next leader will be someone who campaigned for Brexit”.
He told the Daily Telegraph: “We are planning two things rather than one.
“Planning somebody who has got the experience and resilience to get us through the immediate future.
“Then we have got a really good generation of younger politicians in their 40s who can make a real impact, who are going to be the future leadership of the party in the future.”
