Statement from the Office of Glenys Hanna Martin MP for Englerston On The Way Forward Into Parliament:

The Speaker of the Honourable House of Assembly  has by his recent conduct and utterances  lowered the  standards  of our Parliament and has abused the  authority of the Chair.

On January 31st, the Speaker named and suspended me from the House  contrary to the Rules and further  refused me access to the House.

Last Wednesday, 7th  February  the Speaker again engaged in unparliamentary conduct which has become the subject of wide and negative public  commentary resulting in   the  naming and suspension of all remaining Opposition members.

 In these circumstances I have determined not to attend Monday's (12 February) proceedings  in solidarity with my Parliamentary colleagues.

We shall return to the House on 14th February  united to pursue a Motion of No Confidence in the Speaker.
