Commons speaker John Bercow announced his resignation on Monday afternoon.
"At the 2017 election I promised my wife and children that it would be my last. This is a pledge that I intend to keep. If the House votes for an early general election, my tenure as Speaker and MP will end when this Parliament ends. If the House does not so vote I have concluded that the least disruptive and most democratic course of action will be for me to stand down at the close of business on Thursday, October 31", Mr Bercow said.
