Minister Chris Philp quizzed by Kuenssberg as MP Dan Poulter defects to Labour

Poulter says he could have resigned as an MP and caused a by-election, but “on balance” he felt it would be better to continue to work for his constituents because a general election is expected soon.

“We’re at the point where there might be a general election called at any moment, and I think Rishi Sunak should call a general election tomorrow, or as soon as possible, and let the public make a choice about who should be in government,” he says.

And with that, Poulter’s interview on the Kuenssberg show wraps up.
