Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is set to make a public address in front of 10 Downing Street this evening (Friday, March 1).

The Prime Minister spent the day in Scotland, giving a speech to the Scottish Conservative conference in the afternoon.

Shortly after the Conservative leader had finished taking questions from party members in Aberdeen, No 10 confirmed he would be travelling immediately to London where he intends to make public remarks.

Update: Rishi Sunak has since given his speech. See what he said here.

What will Rishi Sunak be talking about?

Downing Street said in a statement, said: “The Prime Minister’s address will touch on recent events, including in Parliament last week, and the need to protect our democratic processes."

There has been a lot of talk about a general election in recent months. 

While in Scotland, Mr Sunak urged voters to stick with the Tories at the next general election.

He argued that his party was “starting to deliver” and used his standard attack line that putting Labour into power would “take the UK back to square one”.

A contest to elect a new UK government is widely expected to take place this year, with an election legally having to be held by January 2025.

The Tories are well behind Labour in opinion polls, with some putting Sir Keir Starmer’s party as much as 20 points in front.

What time will Rishi Sunak's announcement be?

Sky News has reported the "highly unusual" news conference will take place at 5.40pm on Friday (March 1).
