Meanwhile, home secretary Sajid Javid survived by a single vote.

Further votes on Wednesday and Thursday will whittle the field down to a final two.
Responding to the news, European Research Group vice-chairman Mark Francois said: "It was great to see Boris going up again - that's obviously encouraging.
"In a sense it's a shame to lose Dominic Raab because he is an extremely capable politician.
"I hope whoever wins - and I hope it's Boris - will find a good place for Dom in his Cabinet."
