Prime Minister's Questions: 15 December 2010

15 December 2010

Prime Minister, David Cameron, answered questions from MPs in the House of Commons on subjects including unemployment, NHS spending and reorganisation, Educational Maintenance Allowance and children of asylum seekers held in detention centres in the UK.

Starting at 12pm, the Prime Minister answers questions from MPs in the Commons for half an hour every Wednesday.

In most cases, the session starts with a routine ‘open question’ from an MP about the Prime Minister's engagements. MPs can then ask supplementary questions, often on a subject of current political significance.

Opposition MPs follow up on this or another topic, usually led by the Leader of the Opposition, Ed Miliband. Normally, he is the only MP allowed to come back with further questions.
