Description

The Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle brings his pet parrot, Boris, into the Newscast studio.

He also reveals that he’s been "heavily lobbied" by women MPs not to change the rules on bringing children into parliamentary debates. Labour MP Stella Creasy was told it was against the rules to bring a child to a debate after her three-month-old son accompanied her earlier this week.

And Katya talks to Laura and Chris about the political ramifications following the deaths of people trying to cross the Channel in dinghies.

Newscast was made by Danny Wittenberg, Ali Gee and Ros Jones. Jonathan Aspinwall is the editor.
