Govt: Starmer to blame for pressure on Speaker

Claire Coutinho says Sir Keir Starmer is the "real culprit" for the pressure growing on Sir Lindsay Hoyle to step down as Speaker.

The energy security secretary says the Labour leader put the speaker in an "intolerable position" over a House of Commons debate on a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war.
