Lawmakers stage walkout in Britain's House of Commons

Members of Britain's opposition Liberal Democrat party have staged a rare walkout in the House of Commons.
It happened Tuesday after Deputy Speaker Michael Lord ordered Liberal Democrat legislator Ed Davey to leave the building for repeatedly demanding a debate about his party's bid for a referendum on Britain's European Union membership.
Lord called Davey's behavior unacceptable and banned him from the chamber for the day. That prompted the walkout by Davey's colleagues.
