Boris Johnson: PM seeks to move on with focus on tax cutting after bruising confidence vote
Sky News says Boris Johnson has sought to draw a line under a bruising confidence vote by urging Cabinet ministers to focus on tax cutting and levelling up.
The prime minister won the backing of Tory MPs by 211 votes to 148 – leaving allies to say it is now time to move on from questions about his leadership but critics to claim that the scale of the revolt means he should quit.
It was a bigger rebellion against the PM than that suffered by his predecessor Theresa May in 2018, months before she was finally ousted.
