Footage appears to show moment MPs learn news of the Queen mid-session
This is the moment Liz Truss was handed a note telling her about concerns around the Queen's health.
Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster Nadhim Zahawi handed the prime minister a note during a debate in the House of Commons over energy prices.
Footage on Parliament TV showed Mr Zahawi speaking quietly to Ms Truss while Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer was making a statement across the chamber.
Video also showed Mr Zahawi appearing to walk back from the speaker's chair after apparently handing a note with the news to Lindsay Hoyle MP.
Minutes later Labour deputy leader Angela Rayner appears to be handed a note from along the front bench.
Ms Rayner and Sir Keir later exited the Commons.
