Prime Minister, David Cameron, answered questions from MPs on subjects including phone hacking and a public inquiry, drought affecting the Horn of Africa, knife crime, sentencing for drink drivers and NHS reform, in the House of Commons on Wednesday 6 July.

Watch and read the questions asked by MPs on Parliament TV and in Commons Hansard.

An emergency debate on phone hacking followed shortly after Prime Minister's Questions on 6 July 2011.

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 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, Edward Miliband. Normally, he is the only MP allowed to come back with further questions.
