French Prime Minister Manuel Valls announces the government will invoke a constitutional article allowing it to push through a controversial labour bill without a vote, prompting conservative lawmakers to walk out of the lower house's chamber.
It is the second time the government will invoke constitutional article 49-3 for its labour reform project.
The article allows for the adoption of legislation without a parliamentary vote, unless the lower house passes a no-confidence motion against the government.
Dozens of lawmakers stand up and walk out of the chamber as Valls speaks.
