CARLISLE MP John Stevenson has said that the Prime Minister should submit himself for a vote of confidence - after investigations into partygate are concluded by the authorities.

It comes as a debate as to whether the Prime Minister misled MPs after initially denying that he broke the rules is carried out in Parliament.

Boris Johnson was issued a fixed penalty notice from police after being found to have broken lockdown rules.

Mr Stevenson told ITV Border that he believes due process should be followed, with police investigations still ongoing.

However, once these have concluded he thinks the Prime Minister needs to 'draw a line under this'.

Mr Stevenson said: "My own conclusion though is at the end of this the Prime Minister should submit himself to a vote of confidence by the Conservative parliamentary MPs, because I think we have to draw a line under this once and for all."

The Carlisle MP said he would have to wait until he had read the Sue Gray report.
