THE House of Commons Speaker's decision to refuse to schedule a parliament vote on the current Brexit treaty was helping to force a constitutional crisis, Swindon MP Robert Buckland said.

Jon Bercow, Commons Speaker, said parliamentary rules meant MPs could not vote on the same subject twice in the same session. The Commons rejected Theresa May's Brexit deal by 149 votes last week.

Speaking to the BBC, Robert Buckland said: "The Speaker has made his name by being interventionist. Frankly we could have done without this but it is something we are going to have to deal with."

There was now a "constitutional crisis", he warned.

The ball was now in the EU's court to develop new solutions and help the UK government put a fresh Brexit deal to MPs.

North Wiltshire MP James Gray said he was "absolutely furious" a vote on the deal would be delayed.
