Text of Motion of no confidence in the Speaker.

Taken directly from Douglas Carswell's blog here

The text of tomorrow's motion

Tomorrow I will be tabling the following motion in the House of Commons:

No confidence in the Speaker

"That this House has no confidence in Mr Speaker and calls for him to step down; notes that Mr Speaker has failed to provide leadership in matters relating to hon. Members' expenses; believes that a new Speaker urgently needs to be elected by secret ballot, free from manipulation by party Whips, under Standing Order No. 1B; and believes that a new Speaker should proceed to reform the House in such a way as to make it an effective legislature once again."

I already have the signatures of a growing number of MPs on both sides of the Commons.

Please contact your local MP and ask them if they intend to sign it.
