Speaker 'must be above party politics'

The Commons Speaker Michael Martin - who is under pressure to resign - will meet party leaders to discuss immediate reforms to the expenses system for MPs.

Conservative leader David Cameron says that if enough MPs from all parties object to the Speaker then his position should be debated.

Political editor Nick Robinson reports on the calls for the Speaker to resign.
