Eleanor Laing, the Conservative MP for Epping Forest beat six other challengers for the right to fill in for Speaker John Bercow in his absence.

Mr Evans said: “Well done Eleanor Laing, I hope you have a wonderful time as I did in the chair.
“You will bring grace, direction and aplomb to your new job.”
