What can you expect from Prime Minister’s Questions?
Labour will likely focus on the falling Tory support following the no-confidence vote.
The PM is expected to receive a “noisy show of support from his backers in the Commons”.
Despite winning the vote, critics say the results wound him.
Sue Gray’s report into lockdown parties in Downing Street may have prompted the vote, but it also exposed a deep unhappiness among MPs throughout the party across a range of issues.
The PM is expected to use the session to help restore his premiership. But he will likely face tough questions.
Boris Johnson confidence vote?
The Prime Minister won the no-confidence vote – triggered when 54 of his MPs demanded the contest.
He received 211 votes of confidence but 148 against him, which has not silenced the questions about his leadership.
However, the Prime Minister needed over 50 per cent of the vote to remain, and so his 59 per cent win means that he has secured his position for now.
