The sports minister Tracey Crouch resigned because she believed pro-gambling MP Philip Davies successfully went above her head to secure a delay to curbs on fixed-odds betting terminals, defying her on a policy she had overseen.
Friends of Crouch said she was "Furious" after discovering that the digital, culture, media and sport secretary, Jeremy Wright, discussed gambling regulation with Davies during a private meeting.
In her resignation letter, Crouch branded the delay to FOBT reform "Unjustifiable", adding that it was the result of "Commitments made by others to those with registered interests".
The comment is understood to be a reference to Davies, a frequent recipient of gambling companies' generosity according to the parliamentary register of members' financial interests.
Asked about his involvement on Thursday night he said: "I have never known that I have ever been single-handedly responsible for changing government policy but obviously you would like that to be the case irrespective of how unlikely that sounds. I only wish I had such sway over government policy."
Crouch and Davies have clashed before, according to the Labour MP Graham Jones, who tweeted in May that he had seen Davies "Verbally attacking" the sports minister in the House of Commons tea room.
