Hoey on speaker 'losing it'

MP Kate Hoey has criticised the Commons speaker Michael Martin, saying that she thought he 'lost it' while answering a question she put to him on MP's leaked expenses in the Commons.

Speaking on the BBC's Newsnight programme, Ms Hoey says she believes she asked a reasonable question that did not warrant such a response from Mr Martin, and added that a speaker should be 'above it all'
