Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to face more questions regarding lockdown parties at today’s PMQs.
With the rows continuing, the Conservative leader could be facing a revolt amongst Tory MPs.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The PMQs will get underway at 12pm today and the main topic of discussion on the agenda is the various lockdown parties.
With increasing pressure building around the Primer Minister, Tory MPs are beginning to vote against their leader.
Thus far, six Conservative MPs have publicly stated that they have submitted letters of no confidence to Sir Graham Brady, chair of the Conservative backbench 1922 committee.
While the number of no confidence votes is still not confirmed it will take 54 MPs in order to trigger a leadership election.
Other Tory MPs are waiting for civil servant Sue Gray to finalise her investigation before acting.
Mr. Johnson defended himself by saying no one told him the party in the height of the first lockdown wasn’t following the rules at the time.
Johnson is also expected to review Covid data and update parliament this afternoon amid the rumoured easing of restrictions.
Daily Covid cases have dropped in the UK with the number recorded in the past seven days 38.9% down on the previous week.
