Full list of Tory MPs who have called on Boris Johnson to resign

Two other Conservative MPs called for Boris Johnson’s resignation on Friday.

Nick Gibb and Aaron Bell both said they had presented letters of no confidence to the Prime Minister, bringing the total number of MPs who have now called on the Prime Minister to 15 – although not all have officially communicated this to the 1922 Committee chairman, Graham Brady.

A vote of confidence will be triggered when Mr Brady receives letters from 54 MPs, 15 per cent of the parliamentary party, demanding a vote.

Here is a list of those who said Boris Johnson should resign:

– Nick Gibb

Mr Gibb, MP for Bognor Regis and Littlehampton, wrote in The Telegraph that his constituents were “angry at the double standards” and he said the Prime Minister had been “inaccurate” in statements to the House of Commons.

The former education secretary said he submitted his letter of no confidence, adding: “To restore confidence we need to change the prime minister.”

– Aaron Bell

The 2019 Red Wall MP has publicly stated that he submitted a letter asking for a vote of no confidence in his leader.

In a statement, he said: “The breach of trust that the events at No 10 Downing Street represent and the manner in which they were handled render his position untenable.”

In an emotional question in the House of Commons on Monday following the publication of Sue Gray’s report on lockdown parties, Mr Bell asked Mr Johnson if he thought he was a ‘dumb’ for following Covid restrictions at his grandmother’s funeral.

The North Thanet MP said he presented a letter of no confidence to Graham Brady, chairman of the 1922 committee, more than 18 months ago after details of Mr Johnson’s former senior adviser Dominic Cummings’ Barnard Castle trip in 2020 emerged .
