Sir Lindsay Hoyle said: “We have got to pull together, we have got to be effective.

“The Government wants scrutiny and quite rightly the scrutiny starts today.”

Mr Boulton replied: “Is it in order to wear pyjamas or pants if you look ok from the waist up?”

The Speaker joked: “As long as I can’t see.”

He continued: “I am hoping the dress code is virtually the same as it is in the Chamber.

“What I can say is what I can see is what I will be looking at.

“I don’t want to see anything else I assure you.”

MPs will take part in a virtual Parliament today due to the social distancing measures imposed to deal with the coronavirus outbreak.
