Boris Johnson has challenged fellow leadership contender Jeremy Hunt to provide clarity on when he believes the UK should leave the EU.

Mr Johnson wrote a letter today to ask the foreign secretary to join him in the commitment to leave the EU on October 31, deal or no deal.

He wrote: For my part, I have been clear, that if elected leader, we will leave on 31 October with or without a deal.

Will you join me in this commitment to leave on 31 October, come what may?

If you will not, voters deserve to know what alternative deadline you will set.

If I become PM, we will leave the EU on 31st October, deal or no deal. Today I have asked @Jeremy_Hunt whether he will also commit to this date, no matter what. We must keep our promises to the British people and deliver Brexit – no ifs, no buts, and no second referendum. pic.twitter.com/YgRSfESSFY

Mr Johnson added that the central question in the leadership contest is whether the next prime minister agrees to honour the referendum result and commits to leaving the EU on 31 October.

He says, if we fail to deliver once again, the consequences for our party and country will be devastating.

Mr Johnson also asks Mr Hunt: What would you consider to be an acceptable delay? Would it be the end of this year, or will you extend our EU membership into 2020?

At what point will you decide enough is enough.
