THE SNP and the Tories are working together to get rid of Speaker Lindsay Hoyle amid a major row over the opposition day ceasefire motion, according to reports.

On Wednesday afternoon, Hoyle announced rules would be changed for the first time ever by selecting both UK Government and Labour amendments as MPs were set to debate the SNP's ceasefire motion - ultimately saving Labour from a rebellion threat. 

It is the first time in Westminster's history that this has occurred on an Opposition Day, the clerk of the House has confirmed - calling it a "departure from long-established convention". 

This sparked anger from both the SNP and the Tories, with reports that they are set to work together to oust him as Speaker.

Tory MP William Wragg has now tabled a no-confidence motion in Hoyle, with reports that the SNP will lend the motion their backing. 

Two SNP frontbenchers, meanwhile, deny the reports and told The National that they aren't going to work with the Tories to get rid of Hoyle.

It comes as Tory MPs told a Sky News reporter that Keir Starmer and the Labour chief whip Alan Campbell threatened to remove Lindsay Hoyle as speaker during behind the scenes talks if he didn't select Labour's amendment.

Senior Labour figures also reportedly told BBC Newsnight's political editor that Hoyle was left in "no doubt" that Labour would vote him out of his role as Speaker after the general election unless he called the amendment. 

A Labour spokesperson dismissed the allegations as "completely untrue".

The Speaker faced calls of “bring back Bercow” after he made the shock decision ahead of the Commons debate on a ceasefire in Gaza.

Alongside the calls for him to be replaced by his predecessor Joh Bercow, the Commons Speaker faced calls of “shame on you”, and shouts that he should resign, as well as clapping from the SNP, an action not allowed in the Commons chamber.

The Speaker said he took the decision in order to give MPs the “widest possible range” of options in the Gaza ceasefire debate because of its importance.
