10 More MPs Back Davis

Ten further MPs have declared for Davis- Andrew Murrison, David Amess, Malcolm Moss, David Gauke, Mike Penning, Ann Winterton, John Baron, Sir Paul Beresford, James Paice and Ben Wallace.

This takes his support among MPs to 66, just one short of the number required to guarantee a run-off place.

As we've seen from previous declarations, the support comes from across the Parliamentary party, and includes another three from the 2005 intake.

Obviously this contrasts sharply with Ken, who's still got only 18 declared MP supporters, of whom at least 12 are carry-overs from his supporters in 2001. And none of whom are from the 2005 intake.
