Prime Minister's Question Time
Starting at midday, the Prime Minister answers questions from MPs in the Commons for half an hour every Wednesday. This week, First Secretary of State, William Hague will be representing the Government.
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, today led by the Deputy Leader of the Opposition, Harriet Harman. Normally, the opposition spokesperson is the only MP allowed to come back with further questions.
