Prime Minister's Questions: 16 June 2010

16 June 2010

The Prime Minister, David Cameron MP, answered questions from MPs on subjects including umeployment figures, the NHS, education and higher education funding.

The Prime Minister answers question's from MPs in the Commons for half an hour every Wednesday from 12pm.

The session usually starts with a routine question from an MP about the Prime Minister's engagements. This is known as an 'open question' and means that the MP can then ask a supplementary question on any subject, often one of current political significance.

The Leader of the Opposition then follows up on this or another topic. The Leader of the Opposition, currently Harriet Harman, is the only MP allowed to come back with further questions.
