Turning his attention to the Labour leader, Mr Campbell continued: "What he'd want out of a debate like this would be to go on there and go on about the need to end austerity".

Should the Government's deal fail to get through Parliament he said: "What I'd like to happen is Boris Johnson becomes Prime Minister".
