The Conservative Party has cancelled a conference session for its MPs as divisions in the party deepen.
Last year the Conservatives held a conference session titled “The Parliamentary Party” led by the Tory chief whip with “contributions from Conservative MPs”.
But the session is missing from the agenda for the this year’s conference, replaced by an announcement on the party’s election plans titled “Campaign 2022”.
It comes as Labour dubbed Theresa May’s government “the most divided ever”, releasing a dossier of over 100 Tory MPs criticising their leader, their government and each other.
The decision by panicking party managers to prevent MPs from questioning party chiefs highlights the extent of Tory disarray as they meet in Birmingham.
