The problem with Chris Skidmore’s resignation

12 min listen

Chris Skidmore has formally announced his resignation today, triggering another by-election in the process. His departure from the Commons is in protest against the government’s bill on new oil and gas licenses, which is set to be debated later this evening. What’s the reaction been in Westminster?

James Heale speaks to Katy Balls and Fraser Nelson.
