  • Vote of Confidence
    • A formal vote taken in the House of Commons. When the Commons has no confidence in the government of the day.
    • Losing a vote of no confidence, means the PM should request the dissolution of Parliament and a general election.
      • Eg. James Callaghan's Labour government in 1979
    • This is unlikely to happen because the government has an overall majority in the Commons.
    • In 1993 John Major called a Vote of Confidence- he only just won.
