New SNP MPs make maiden House of Commons speeches

Three of the SNP's new MPs have made their first contributions in the House of Commons.

Argyll and Bute MP Brendan O'Hara and the North East Fife MP Stephen Gethins made their maiden speeches.

Hannah Bardell, the new MP for Livingtson, intervened in an adjournment debate on zero hours contracts.

In a sparsely-occupied chamber, the SNP benches were packed until the session ended late into the evening.

The SNP won 56 of Scotland's 59 seats in the general election.
