Prime Minister's Questions: 1 December 2010

01 December 2010

Prime Minister, David Cameron, answered questions from MPs in the House of Commons on subjects including the Office for Budget Responsibility forecasts for employment, funding of higher education and tuition fees, compensation for victims of terrorist attacks abroad and England's 2018 World Cup bid.

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.
