Nicola Sturgeon, Scotland’s First Minister, told Mr Johnson in a letter that the “paralysis” had to stop now.

The blue-chip business lobby group the Confederation of British Industry said the new government would need a plan in place for when it takes over.

“We simply cannot afford a summer of government inactivity while the leadership contest plays out,” Director General Tony Danker said.

Energy regulator Ofgem will publish its next price cap on August 26, with average household prices expected to rise from £1,277 at the start of this year to around £3,400 in October, and rise again in January.
