LONDON (Reuters) - 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.
"They have chosen to play politics by tabling a vote of no confidence in the government and the prime minister. As the prime minister has already resigned and a leadership process is underway, we do not feel this is a valuable use of parliamentary time."
