Number 10 said it would allow a vote in the Government but a vote in the Prime Minister would not be a “valuable use” of time as he has already resigned. It comes ahead of the first leadership ballot taking place today that sees eight candidates left, with former Chancellor Rishi Sunak and Trade Minister Penny Mordaunt the current favourites.


The eight candidates standing for PM

The Tory leadership contest has narrowed to eight after three candidates failed to make the knockout stages. 

They are:

Kemi Badenoch

Suella Braverman

Jeremy Hunt

Penny Mordaunt

Rishi Sunak

Liz Truss

Tom Tugendhat

Nadhim Zahawi
