The Speaker of the House hit out at the Prime Minister for failing to address his answers during Prime Minister’s Questions to him.
Traditionally, both the leader of the Government and the leader of the Opposition address their questions through the chair of the Speaker.
But as Boris Johnson focussed his attention to the rest of the House, Sir Lindsay Hoyle urged him to “sit down” and ensure he speak to him and not his colleagues.
The Speaker said: “Prime Minister. Prime Minister, sit down.
“I won’t tell you what you’ve got to say but I can’t hear you when you talk that way.
“I’m here in the chair, please, if you can help me.”
