LONDON (Reuters) – Britain does not wish to stop the formation of a new European Commission, a spokesman for Prime minister Boris Johnson said on Monday, restating the position that London would not be nominating a new commissioner during an election.

“We’ve set out our position to the EU on multiple occasions including in our initial letter … the UK does not intend or wish to stop the EU proceeding with the formation of a new Commission at the earliest possible moment,” the spokesman said.
