Tory leadership contest heats up

Today marks a significant milestone in the Conservative Party leadership race, with the next stage of votes taking place in the House of Commons.

The current list of candidates will likely be reduced by 4 as initial reports suggest not all candidates will reach the required 17 votes to reach the next stage.

Boris Johnson is still showing as the likely winner in current polling whilst the likes of Rory Stewart, Esther McVey and Andrea Leadsome are looking likely to not make the cut.

The results of this stage will be announced today (13th June 2019) around 1pm.
