The Speaker John Bercow says he has looked at the footage of Jeremy Corbyn allegedly saying “stupid woman” to Theresa May, and “it is easy to see why the leader of the Opposition’s words might be construed as ‘stupid woman'”.
“That was also the opinion of lip speakers (and I emphasise lip speakers rather than lip readers) whose advice was obtained at short notice,” he adds.
The Speaker says Mr Corbyn was sitting at the time, and not speaking to the House and so his words are not audible on the record, and he personally neither saw or heard anything.
He adds that he believes the allegations made by a number of members was based on visual evidence and “nobody can be 100% certain, that includes professional lip readers”.
“I would be expected to take the word of any honourable member, and it is reasonable for the House to do the same.”
