Sir Lindsay Hoyle ensures 'office is open to all' on his return as Speaker


Sir Lindsay Hoyle has been re-elected as Commons Speaker, telling MPs his “office is open to all”. The Chorley MP was returned to the post unopposed at the start of the new Parliament. He replaced John Bercow as Speaker in November, serving two days in the post before a general election was called. The Speaker election marks the first day of the new Parliament, which welcomes 140 new MPs to the chamber.
