Duddridge Tables No Confidence Motion in Speaker

Vote of No Confidence

This House has no confidence in The Speaker.

Tory MP James Duddridge tells Sky:

“We want a fresh speaker, a Speaker that has the confidence of the full House… I’ve been absolutely amazed at the number of people who’ve encouraged me to table this motion of no confidence… The number of MPs speaking out will increase and it will be known that the Speaker’s position is untenable.”

Another blow to Bercow’s authority, though he likely has the numbers to cling on…
