Britain’s opposition Labour Party will call a no confidence vote in the government when it believes members of the ruling Conservatives will support it, the party’s trade spokesman Barry Gardiner said on Sunday.
Boris Johnson, the frontrunner to become prime minister this month, has said Britain must leave the European Union on Oct. 31 with or without a deal. Several Conservative lawmakers have said they would consider voting to try to bring down a government which was pursuing a no-deal Brexit.
Conservative lawmaker Sam Gyimah, who ran for the party’s leadership but withdrew before voting began and supports holding a second referendum on Brexit, said there were 30 or more Conservative lawmakers who would back “legislative options” to try to block a no-deal Brexit.
They would seek to stop the new prime minister trying to shut down parliament in order to deliver a no-deal Brexit against the will of lawmakers, he said.
