SNP MPs have walked out en masse from Prime Minister’s Questions after their Westminster chief was thrown out of the chamber in a row with the Speaker.
Ian Blackford refused to sit down down when ordered to by John Bercow having requested for the Commons to sit down in non-public.
This was in protest on the authorities’s dealing with of debate and votes on the EU Withdrawal Bill.
And it introduced PMQs to a momentary halt because the Speaker consulted his officers on what to do subsequent.
Mr Bercow stated MPs might vote on his request for a non-public sitting on the finish of PMQs – however when Mr Blackford refused to sit down again down he was expelled, along with his fellow SNP members following him out of the chamber.
