The Conservative MP, who retained her seat in Fareham after last week's general election, delivered a "great speech" in favour of Boris Johnson's Brexit deal. But Ms Braverman, who returned to Parliament after six months of maternity leave, was heckled by SNP MPs who "disrespectfully" laughed at her words. She said: “When we take the first step through the enactment of this legislation, we will do so confidently and looking forward with optimism.
“We will do so in the knowledge that is what millions of people around the country want us to do.
“We will do so knowing that it’s born out of legitimacy and integrity.”
At this point, a Member of the opposition could be heard laughing first. But Ms Braverman continued: “It derives from a noble aspiration for sovereignty and out of a heartfelt call for freedom.
“Something that some of those members opposite who still live in denial about Brexit seek to deny.”

But the laughter only became louder when she added that “historically the UK has been viewed around the world as a beacon of justice, a symbol of fair play and a home of democracy.”
When contacted after her speech, the Tory MP confirmed it was SNP MPs sat on the opposition benches who could be heard laughing in the chamber.
Some attempted to identify one of the laughing MPs with Joanna Cherry. But when contacted, a spokesman for the SNP MP's office refused to confirm nor deny whether Ms Cherry was among those laughing.
Commenting on the incident, one Twitter user wrote: “So do we know who the MP was who laughed when Suella Braverman said that UK kingdom's Laws were held in high regard around the world. Should be named & called to account. Sounded like a female, & any bets she has never heard of Laws of Aethelberht, Edgar etc?”
And another: “I think it was truly disrespectful to a fellow woman and MP Suella Braverman should get a formal apology for such ignorant and rude behaviour. Sadly I am not surprised. Maybe Lindsay Hoyle might advise her as it was a poor example of behaviour in a new era.”
Another Twitter user wrote: “Excellent speech from Suella Braverman about the need for trust between politicians and the electorate. Just a shame someone from the opposition felt the need to cackle the entire way through.”
One Twitter user described it as "utter contempt".
They wrote: “Magnificent speech by tremendous Brexiteer Suella Braverman about trust, respecting Brexit and democracy. Liberals and leftie Remoaners laughing and mocking her.

Another Twitter user congratulated the Tory MP on becoming a mother and branded the SNP MPs "rude and disgusting".
They wrote: “Well said today in Parliament. Motherhood suits you - looking fab!! Whoever was laughing was disgusting and rude but that is not surprising sadly."
MPs will vote on Boris Johnson's Brexit deal later on Friday afternoon.
