LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May is not expected to name a replacement for senior minister Damian Green on Thursday, May’s spokesman said.

May asked Green, a close ally, to resign after a pornography scandal.

“I wouldn’t expect anything today,” the spokesman told reporters. He added that the decision about whether to directly replace Green, who held a special role as her de facto deputy, was a matter for May.
