LONDON (Reuters) – British Conservative lawmaker William Wragg said on Wednesday he had submitted a letter of no confidence in Prime Minister Liz Truss after being “ashamed” of her mini-budget.

The government has told lawmakers that a vote on her fracking policy later on Wednesday would be treated as a test of confidence, and those who vote against it will be removed from the parliamentary party.

Wragg, who opposes fracking, said he would vote with the government so that a letter of no confidence he had submitted would not become void. “I wish to maintain that letter,” he told parliament.
