An MP has been suspended from the House of Commons after refusing to stop shouting following a debate on the government’s post-Brexit Internal Market Bill.
After a 40-second outburst in which he branded the bill a “democratic outrage” to Scotland, the SNP’s business spokesperson Drew Hendry was formally “named” and barred from the rest of the day’s sitting – with MPs voting shortly afterwards to pave the way for the controversial bill to be passed into law.

Deputy Speaker Dame Rosie Winterton told Mr Hendry to resume his seat but the MP refused, proceeding to pick up the parliamentary mace and walk towards the door of the chamber.
