The gaggle of Europhilic MPs were immediately shut up, with Mr Hoyle explaining that he did not want other groups to start singing.
He told the SNP MPs: “I personally don’t mind singing but I certainly can’t allow it in the chamber.
“Because before we know it, we could be hearing other tunes and I don’t want to get into that.”
