Earlier this week, former supreme court judge Lord Sumption stated that MPs could only prevent a no-deal Brexit and general election by tabling a confidence vote in Mr Johnson and successfully forming a new government in the 14 days before an election would be automatically triggered.

Britain's opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn speaks during a rally calling for a general election in London, Britain July 25,2019.

Meanwhile, several drugmakers have stockpiled drugs, fearing that a no-deal Brexit would make it harder for them to import products and raw materials due to the absence of formalized trade rules between the United Kingdom and European Union.

Labour has said any MP wishing to stop a no-deal Brexit should give their backing to Jeremy Corbyn's bid to form a government.

"The new rules should place more trust in institutions, who are best placed to make decisions about the people they need to keep us at the cutting edge", Beth Thompson, head of European Union policy at the Wellcome Trust, a biomedical charity, says in a statement, according to Science.

Whether a parliamentary vote of no-confidence in the government would prove successful is another matter, however, but with a tiny majority of just one, it's entirely possible Johnson may be forced into calling an election, almost two years earlier than now scheduled.

"Forcing through no-deal against a decision of parliament, and denying the choice to the voters in a general election already underway, would be an unprecedented, unconstitutional and anti-democratic abuse of power by a prime minister elected, not by the public, but by a small number of unrepresentative Conservative Party members", Corbyn wrote.

"A Labour government will never support a no-deal exit, so would of course "want the opportunity to take a different view".

Officials said that Sir Mark would be replying to Mr Corbyn, but senior Tories dismissed the Labour leader's letter as a "political stunt".
