Paul Flynn suspended from the House of Commons
A GWENT MP has been suspended from the House of Commons today after calling the secretary of state for defence Philip Hammond a liar.
Paul Flynn, MP for Newport West, made the comment following a statement on Afghanistan in the House of Commons.
Mr Flynn was given a chance to withdraw the statement. However he didn't and accepted the consequences of not doing so.
The suspension will last a day.
Mr Flynn is well known for his opposition to the UK's involvement in the Afghanistan conflict, and recently tabled parliamentary motions detailing the names of more than 400 dead soldiers
