Four confirmed candidates for Speaker so far

News from the Hansard Society via email:

The Hansard Society will be holding a hustings meeting for potential candidates for the role of Speaker of the House of Commons. Potential candidates will have the opportunity to make a statement and answer questions both from MPs and those submitted by members of the public via the Hansard Society website.

We have invited potential candidates for the position of Speaker to participate. Since the position will still be fluid then, it is not our aim to be exclusive.  Confirmed participants in the Hansard Society Speaker Hustings thus far include:

  • Alan Beith MP
  • John Bercow MP
  • Frank Field MP
  • Sir Patrick Cormack MP

I like the touch about allowing questions from the public.

  • Hansard, Andrew.

    Is it too Machiavellian to suggest that Mrs May was the 48th Tory MP to send in a letter ?

    I hope she gets 52% of the vote.
