Team Mordaunt is “confident” of hitting the 100 threshold, an ally has said.

Damian Green, the former first secretary of state and a supporter of Ms Mordaunt, told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “We are confident that Penny will get above the 100 mark.”

He added: “There are a lot of people who weren’t declaring publicly what they were doing, indeed, Penny’s numbers I know are well above the published figure already even without any of Boris’s supporters…”

Mr Green would not say a specific number but said it is “way, way above the published number” and “we are confident of getting to 100 before the deadline of two o’clock”.
