UK house of commons speaker Hoyle faces motion of no confidence over Gaza vote

London, Feb 22 (UNI) At least 33 lawmakers of the Conservative Party and the Scottish National Party (SNP) of the United Kingdom have tabled a motion of no confidence in UK House of Commons Speaker Lindsay Hoyle following a "chaos" during a vote on a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip, UK broadcaster ITV reported on Wednesday.
The SNP used the rule that on some days the agenda of the House of Commons, the lower house of the UK, is determined by opposition non-governmental parties to discuss the Gaza conflict and to introduce a resolution on a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip.
Lawmakers were expected to consider the government and the SNP's wording of the resolution, but Lindsay decided that the lower house would first vote on the Labour Party's calls for an "immediate ceasefire" before the SNP motion. Conservative and SNP lawmakers were furious at the way the speaker defied parliamentary convention by selecting a Labour amendment on the SNP's Gaza ceasefire motion, with many of them having walked out of the House of Commons in protests at Hoyle, the report said.
