John Stevenson, the MP for Carlisle, has become the latest Conservative backbencher to submit a letter calling for a vote of no confidence in Boris Johnson.

In a statement posted on social media, Mr Stevenson said he had recently called on the Prime Minister to put himself forward for a confidence vote to “draw a line” under recent controversies.

“Sadly, the Prime Minister appears unwilling to bring matters to a head and submit himself to such a vote,” he said.

“Therefore, the only option is for the Conservative MPs to facilitate a vote of confidence. I have already take the appropriate action.”
