What can you expect from Prime Minister’s Question?
PMQs today is set to be dominated by domestic issues, Labour is likely to focus on the cost of living crisis, in particular inflation which has reached its highest point in 40 years.
There have been widespread calls for chancellor Rishi Sunak to do more for ordinary people during the cost of living crisis.
PM Boris Johnson is likely set to focus on Beergate – which has had several updates since the last PMQs on 27 April.
Starmer maintains he did not breach covid rules but given the tone Starmer adopted when confronting the PM over the Partygate scandal, he’s likely to be called a hypocrite in the Commons today.
