Argyll and Bute MP Brendan O’Hara said he walked out of the House of Commons ‘to stand up for constituents following attempts by the Tory government to silence Scotland’s voice on Brexit’.

The MP joined the SNP’s Westminster leader, Lochaber’s Ian Blackford, in protest, after the Speaker asked him to leave during Prime Minister’s Questions.

Mr O’Hara described last week’s events in the Commons this week as ‘scandalous’.
