UK government to block plan to hold confidence vote - opposition Labour Party

United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson will block an attempt by the opposition Labour Party to call a confidence vote in his government on Wednesday, a Labour spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

Labour said earlier it intended to call such a vote, and by convention, the government would normally free up parliamentary time for one. Johnson's spokesman could not immediately be reached for comment.

Britain's government said on Tuesday that it would allow an attempt by the opposition Labour Party to call a confidence vote if the wording of the motion was changed to remove reference to Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

"We have given Labour the option to table a straightforward vote of no confidence in the government," a government spokeswoman said.
