Does anything prevent a no-confidence vote in the UK Government at this time?

The latest UK Prime Minister is currently in quite a bad spot. The universally panned mini-budget has inflicted so much chaos the BoE has had to step in, and the Chancellor has been sacked a little over a month into the job.

The i is reporting that as many as 100 Tory MPs have submitted no confidence votes to the 1922 committee well above the 15% threshold, such that only the party rules regarding a grace period are preventing her from being replaced by her own MPs through an internal confidence vote.

Numerous Labour MPs are on record saying a general election is now required, hardly surprising given their current polling.

Is something preventing Labour seeking a vote of no confidence in the Government?
