The 1922 Committee has the ability to hold proxy votes, meaning MPs do not have to attend in person for a vote on the Prime Minister’s leadership to take place. A total of 54 letters are needed to reach the threshold to trigger a confidence vote.
On Tuesday, Mr Johnson attempted a mini ‘reset’ in his cabinet before it emerged he is planning a full reshuffle in the summer to prepare for the next general election.
One of the key roles appointed was Chris Heaton-Harris as the new Tory chief whip.

Minister indicates PM won’t apologies for Savile comemnt
Health minister Ed Argar has indicated Boris Johnson would not apologise for his Jimmy Savile remarks to Sir Keir Starmer.
Mr Argar said the Prime Minister has already “clarified what he was talking about.”
Labour leader Sir Keir had to be bundled into a police car after being ambushed by protestors earlier this week.
Mr Argar told Sky News: “He’s clarified that he was talking about Sir Keir in the context of his leadership role at the CPS. Just as, quite rightly, Sir Keir holds him to account for his leadership role over the Government.
“That doesn’t mean personal responsibility for individual decisions, but that’s the context, and the Prime Minister has clarified that.
“And I’ll be honest with you, I suspect that’s what you will hear from the Prime Minister later.”
