The PM left for Madrid from the G7 in Germany. He is under pressure to announce an increase to the UK’s military spending after he called on fellow Nato members to meet their own defence targets.

What’s on the agenda for this week’s PMQs? 

This week’s PMQs is set to be dominated by the controversial Northern Ireland Bill. 

MPs voted 295 to 221 on Monday to give the bill a second reading, but there was a significant Tory rebellion led by former prime minister Theresa May.

The proposed legislation will hand the Government sweeping new powers to overrule an international treaty it signed with the EU in 2019.

Deputy Labour leader Rayner is likely to bring up the “summer of strikes” which has led to travel chaos across the country. 

She supported the rail workers’ strike, tweeting: “No one takes strike action lightly. Workers have been left with no choice. I will always defend their absolute right to do so for fairness at work. The PM needs to do his own job. His Government caused this. Now they must solve it.”
