As the Father of the House - its longest serving Member - Sir Edward conducted the arduous procedure to elect the new Speaker. Despite his age, Sir Edward is a regular attender at the Commons, an occasional speaker - always without notes and invariably witty - and never misses an opportunity to proclaim his pro-European views.
