|Description||The MP who infuriated campaigners by objecting to a ban on upskirting has been heavily criticised after blocking another private members' bill. |
Sir Christopher Chope shouted "object" in a debate on laws protecting children from female genital mutilation.
His Conservative colleague, Zac Goldsmith, said his actions were "appalling" - Lib Dem Tom Brake said the MP had "reached a new low".
Sir Christopher has argued his aim is to stop badly thought-out legislation.
He said he had not been objecting to the substance of the issue, but wanted to see all legislation properly debated.
