New Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle. Congratulations Sir Lindsay Hoyle the new Speaker of the House of Commons.  Don’t miss his pitch at end of video.  It’s fantastic👏

Labour MP and deputy Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle has been elected by MPs as the new Commons Speaker, after John Bercow stepped down.

He was dragged to the chair by MPs, where he pledged to be a “neutral” and “transparent” Speaker. Sir Lindsay also paid tribute to daughter Natalie who died in 2017

Sir Lindsay Hoyle received 325 votes to Chris Bryant’s 213 in the fourth and final round of voting.

Earlier, MPs made their pitches to succeed John Bercow as Speaker of the House of Commons. This is in the first election for the powerful post in more than a decade.

The Speaker keeps order in Commons debates and calls MPs to speak.

Seven candidates were in the running, including Labour’s Harriet Harman and deputy Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle.  That list was whittled down to five after the first vote.

Labour MP Meg Hillier and Conservative Sir Edward Leigh were knocked out in the first round of the contest after receiving 10 and 11 votes respectively.

Sir Lindsay Hoyle received the most votes in round one (211), followed by Dame Eleanor Laing (113), Chris Bryant (98), Harriet Harman (72) and Dame Rosie Winterton (46)
