UK elections 2019: House of Commons elects new speaker – BBC News



The House of Commons selected Sir Lindsay Hoyle as its new chairman, succeeding John Berkov, a few days before the official election campaign begins on Wednesday. Sir Lindsay – originally a Labor MP – was previously Vice President and he secured a significant majority in the last round of voting. The role of the President has been crucial in recent years – as the UK Parliament struggles to tackle the Brexit crisis.

Meanwhile, doctors and health officials in England have warned party leaders not to use the NHS as a "political weapon" during the general election campaign, and we tell you more about how political parties have stepped up their social media campaigns in recent days.

Hugh Edwards presents BBC News in Ten and talks about the day's events with BBC's chief political correspondent Vicky Young, Hugh Pim's health editor, Sarah Smith, and media editor Amol Rajan.
