Paul Rowley reports for LBC Newstalk breakfast from Westminster on mixed reaction to the results of the first round of the Conservative Party leadership contest in which Margaret Thatcher failed an outright win over Michael Heseltine, and opposition calls for a general election. Interviews with: Anthony Beaumont-Dark, Tory MPs Teresa Gorman and Peter Temple-Morris; former Trade Secretary Nicholas Ridley; Labour Party campaign co-ordinator Jack Cunningham; Liberal Democrat leader Paddy Ashdown. Labour has tabled a no confidence motion but Education Secretary Kenneth Clarke says the move will backfire and reunite the Tories.
