Prime Minister's Questions

PMQs 4 Mar 2020 ©UK Parliament_Jessica Taylor

Although visits to the public galleries at Westminster have been stopped until further notice, you can still watch live feeds of debates and committee hearings on Parliament Live TV.

Normally Prime Minister's Questions (PMQs) in the Commons Chamber is a ticketed event which takes place every Wednesday at 12 noon. Tickets are free of charge and are available only to UK residents, who should contact their Member of Parliament or a Member of the House of Lords.

For PMQs, advance booking is essential to be sure of entry. MPs have a limited number of tickets so requests should be made as far in advance as possible.

Overseas visitors and those without a ticket can watch PMQs if there is space in the gallery. Those queuing on the day are likely to experience a 1 to 2 hour wait with no guarantee of entry, by which time PMQs may be over. Entry to the public gallery is free for all visitors.

Occasionally, other MPs may represent the Prime Minister or the Leader of the Opposition at PMQs when either or both cannot attend.
