06 Feb 2017 – Donald Trump may not be allowed to address Parliament on UK state visit, Speaker says

John Bercow, the Speaker, said he was “strongly opposed” to Mr Trump speaking in the Commons and that being invited was “not an automatic right” but “an earned honour”.

“Before the imposition of the migrant ban I would myself have been strongly opposed to an address by president trump in Westminster Hall,” he told MPs in response to a point of order by an MP.

“After the imposition of the Migrant ban by President Trump I am even more strongly opposed to an address by President Trump in Westminster Hall.”

Parts of the Commons erupted into rare spontaneous applause in support of Mr Bercow’s statement.
