MP: Prime Minister’s assurances are not credible
This morning the Chairman of the 1922 Committee, Sir Graham Brady MP, announced the threshold has been met for a vote of no confidence in the Prime Minister, Rt Hon Boris Johnson MP. In the vote this evening, John Baron MP will be voting against the Prime Minister.
“Further to my announcement last month following the publication of the Sue Gray report that I was withdrawing my support from the Prime Minister, I will be voting against the Prime Minister in the vote of no confidence this evening.”
“Sue Gray’s report laid bare the extent of the rule-breaking at the heart of Government. Sadly the Prime Minister’s repeated assurances to Parliament that he was unaware of any rule-breaking are simply not credible. For me, the central issue is the integrity of Parliament – not whether Boris Johnson is an electoral asset or not.”
