Prime Minister, David Cameron, answered questions from MPs in the House of Commons on subjects including charities and the voluntary sector, Sure Start children’s centres and the replacement of Trident nuclear weapons.

Prime Minister's Question Time

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.
