The shadow home secretary initially refused to comment on Labour’s plans once Parliament resumes next month. But when pressed she admitted negotiations to secure backing for a vote of no confidence were under way. Ms Abbott said: “It’s above my pay grade to say when we’ll move the vote of no confidence.”

She continued: “But who has confidence in Boris Johnson apart from the people around him?

“The more he announces these bogus unfunded announcements, I think the less confidence there will be in him in the general public.

“But one of the things we have to do is consult with other parties – it’s no good moving a vote of no confidence if the Lib Dems, for instance, are not going to vote for it.

“We are talking to all of the other parties in Parliament and if we move for a vote of no confidence we’ll want to do it with confidence that we can win it.”
