Labour furious after government reject no confidence vote

Labour today filed a motion in no confidence following the announcement that Boris Johnson, the resigned prime minister, will continue in office until September.

In an unprecedented move, Number 10 rejected the motion, causing Labour’s Thangam Debbonaire to raise a point of order regarding this “outrageous breach of convention”.

Deputy Speaker Nigel Evans reinforced the knowledge that the Chair cannot impact the matter which is for the government but said that he “would anticipate further discussion” in the final seven days of parliament’s current session.
