Speaker ERUPTS: Sir Lindsay Hoyle slams UK Ministers over poor answers ‘Not good enough!’
Speaker slams MPs for ‘not respecting’ opposition questions
Sir Lindsay Hoyle issued the warning to Conservative MPs, telling them that the International Trade debate on the future of Brexit Britain in Parliament had “not been very good”. Sir Lindsay reminded UK Ministers that all MPs are representing a constituency and their questions deserve proper respect.
The Speaker said: “What I will say is that these questions have not been good.
“I am beginning to worry that we have very good answers to one side of the chamber and the answers to the others are not getting the respect they deserve.
“In fact, we had one occasion when it ‘not our responsibility’ and then when another member asked it is our responsibility.
“I want us to be concise in the treatment and the way in which we deal with all members of this house.

“And not the political games of all sides that seem to be being played.”

The Speaker of the House of Commons added that he was moving onto other questions as there were many other MPs desperate to participate in Prime Minister’s Questions.
Sir Lindsay said: “There are questions and sometimes we’ve got to answer the question to what was asked of you.
“I think to run through history is one thing but in fairness, it is Prime Minister’s Questions, it was the final question.
“We’ve lots of others to go through so I think what I’m going to do now is move on to Simon Jupp in Sidmouth who is desperate to ask a question.”
