+++ Speaker Barracked by MPs Over No Confidence Vote +++

15.30 Speaker called a meeting with all party leaders.  Gordon Prentice (Labour) and Douglas Carswell (Conservative) made Points of Order regarding the No Confidence Motion that were refused by the Speaker. Told to retire by David Winnick (Labour).  David Heath (LibDem) got heated.

Chamber looked ready to do damage.

15.43 Richard Shepherd (Conservative)  called for the Motion to be debated.  Stuart Bell (Labour) toadied to the Speaker.  David Davis asked how the motion could be made into a substantive motion, only with the government’s blessing said the Speaker (to jeers).

15.45 Susan Kramer called for an opposition day debate on the motion.

MPs leave looking unhappy.  Speaker gave nothing away.
