Thank you, Mr Speaker. If this place stands for anything, it is freedom of expression, and you are the greatest defender of that freedom, but that freedom must be accompanied by personal safety, in particular for hon. and right hon. Members. We have heard reports from Stephen Doughty of the threatening behaviour of certain protesters towards my right hon. Friend Anna Soubry. Will you consult the Serjeant at Arms to see whether the Metropolitan police are doing everything they can to protect the public’s right to protest but also to ensure that Members are able to go about their business in total safety?
