JAMES Morris MP has passed his congratulations to Boris Johnson who will become Britain's next Prime Minister.

The Halesowen and Rowley Regis MP is one of a number of political figures, including Donald Trump, who have welcomed Johnson's victory over Jeremy Hunt in the Conservative party leadership race.

Mr Morris tweeted that he now wanted to see Boris deliver Brexit on October 31st.

He tweeted: "Congratulations to @BorisJohnson on becoming Leader of @Conservatives and our new Prime Minister.

"Now it’s time to deliver Brexit on October 31st and focus on our new domestic agenda."

Johnson’s victory was also welcomed by Donald Trump, who tweeted: “He will be great!”

Boris will address Tory MPs at a meeting of the 1922 Committee this afternoon (Tuesday).

He will not take office formally until tomorrow afternoon.

May will face her final prime minister’s questions in the House of Commons before tendering her resignation to the Queen.

Johnson will then go to Buckingham Palace himself for his appointment – before giving a speech in front of the black door of No 10.
