The Prime Minister’s top aide, Dominic Cummings was reported to be preparing for a “people versus the politicians” poll if MPs again seek to rebel against the results of the 2016 referendum vote to leave the EU.
It came as Mr Johnson announced a further £1.8 billion boost for the NHS in the latest of a series of announcements seen to to be preparing the ground for an early election.
Mr Hancock said: “I haven’t talked to Dominic or to the Prime Minister or anybody else in Westminster about this. The only people who keep raising this point are journalists.
“I don’t want one (an election). I don’t think we need one. I think what we need is to deliver Brexit.”

Mr Johnson he wouldn’t prepare to fight a general election if Labour wins a vote of no confidence
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said he will call for a vote of no confidence in the government this autumn to try to stop a no deal Brexit.
Mr Corbyn said the party would do this “when we can win it”, but added it would be at an “appropriate very early time”.
Speaking on a visit to Whaley Bridge in Derbyshire, Mr Corbyn said: “We will do everything to stop no deal including a no confidence vote at the appropriate very early time to do it.
“The Prime Minister seems to be trying to slip no-deal through, slip past Parliament and slip past the British people.
Boris Johnson becoming Prime Minister has seen the Tories re-gain some support
“Sorry, no-deal will be really serious.
“Serious for food prices, for medical supplies, for trade, for investment, and drive us straight into the hands of the sort of trade deal that Donald Trump wants to do with Boris Johnson.
“I’m sorry, it’s not on, it’s not acceptable. We will do everything we can to block it.
“There will be a no-confidence motion put at a point when we can win it and a point when we can make sure this Government is not allowed to take this country out of the union with no deal, because of all the dangers there will be to the people of this country.”
Mr Johnson’s spokesman refused say what he would do if MPs voted against no deal
Jeremy Corbyn said he will call for a vote of no confidence in the government
But when he was asked whether he would be preparing to fight a general election based on Labour winning a vote of no confidence, Mr Johnson said: “No. The answer is no.
“The people of the UK voted in the election 2015, they had a referendum in 2016, and another election in 2017.
“They want us to deliver what they asked for – and that is for us to leave the EU. The last thing I want to do is call another election.”
At an earlier briefing for political journalists at Westminster, the Prime Minister’s spokesman repeatedly refused to be drawn on what the Government would do if MPs voted against no-deal, saying it was a “hypothetical” question.
The spokesman said: ”The legal default, as put in place by Parliament, is that we will be leaving on October 31.”
A total of 6,492 Express.co.uk readers were surveyed 11.50am to 9.50pm on Monday August 5 on when a general election should next take place.
