Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I don't believe there is any obligation to table a confidence motion. The Government has to show it can get its legislation through Parliament and can deal with necessary business. If it has difficulty doing this, the Opposition will table a no-confidence motion. If this is carried, the Government has 14 days in which to win a vote "That this House has confidence in Her Majesty's Government".

Other votes which may demonstrate confidence / no confidence are the Queen's Speech and the Budget.

I used to be afew. I'm still not many.
