On Saturday evening, Mr Johnson wrote a letter to potential Tory rebels offering several olive branches to secure their support for the system.

But despite offering them another chance to vote on the restrictions early next year - meaning the measures could lapse on February 3 - several said they still have reservations.

Conservative MP Peter Bone said he was "undecided" and would make his mind up after seeing the impact assessment, saying: "The dilemma I have is do we do more damage by the tiered system of lockdown, or do we do less."

Another senior Tory backbencher said that his vote was "still in the balance" as he urged Mr Johnson to provide analysis of how the tier restrictions will affect businesses, saying he did not have confidence that the government was really considering their needs.

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer, who is expected to hold talks with England's chief medical officer Professor Chris Whitty today, has not yet said whether the party will support the tier system.

If the party votes against it - and if Mr Johnson suffers a major rebellion from his own MPs - the government could lose the vote.

However, the prime minister's argument for stringent restrictions will be boosted by new figures from an Imperial College London study suggesting coronavirus infections fell by almost a third in England during the second national lockdown.

Professor Paul Elliott, director of the React study at Imperial, has said the findings suggested the tiers before the beginning of November, followed by the lockdown, had helped bring cases down.
