Prime Minister's Questions: 8 December 2010

08 December 2010

Prime Minister, David Cameron, answered questions from MPs in the House of Commons on subjects including higher education funding and student finance, regional economic development, knife crime, Afghanistan and the severe winter weather in Scotland.

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 on any subject, often one 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.
