In video: MP’s rowdy behaviour in Commons worthy of Asbo, Speaker says

Labour’s Paula Sherriff Sherriff was among those who loudly voiced their frustration as the PM responded to a question.

John Bercow has warned an MP she would have received an anti-social behaviour order (Asbo) if her rowdy behaviour took place outside the Commons.

The Speaker made the joke at the expense of Labour’s Paula Sherriff (Dewsbury) as he sought to quieten the chamber to allow Prime Minister Theresa May to respond to a question.

Ms Sherriff’s party colleague Tracy Brabin (Batley and Spen) raised concerns over the future of Dewsbury hospital’s accident and emergency department, adding some constituents had to wait more than 20 hours for a bed during the Christmas period.
