Harriett Baldwin quizzes Government on ‘No Confidence’ votes

25th September 2019

Harriett Baldwin urges Opposition to table vote of no confidence if they are not happy with the Government rather than a “barrage of invective”.

Harriett Baldwin (West Worcestershire) (Con)

I have not quite your stamina, Mr Speaker, but I have been on these Benches for many hours listening to the barrage of invective that my Front Bench have been on the receiving end of. I think I heard the Prime Minister offer something unprecedented—that any Opposition party could table a vote of no confidence tomorrow. Is the Leader of the House aware of anyone having tabled such a motion yet?

Mr Rees-Mogg

I am grateful to my hon. Friend for that very important point. It is an unprecedented offer. It is available for a limited time only. It is like one of those offers in supermarkets. I cannot promise it will be there forever, but it is currently available, but what has happened so far? What have we heard from these people who say they want an election? Absolutely nothing. By their fruits ye shall judge them.
