“Removing 20 per cent of capacity every week is clearly not a way to achieve this.”

He added: “I am looking forward to Conservative Peterborough City Council confirming they will not contemplate this expensive gimmick!”

Mr Bristow released a copy of a letter to Matt Gladstone, chief executive of Peterborough City Council, outlining his opposition to a 4-day week.

“I look forward to you confirming that Peterborough City Council will not be trialling a 4-day week,” he writes.
