PMQs Live – 287 MPs have been sanctioned by Russia – “badge of honour” says PM
That’s the end of this week’s Prime Minister’s Questions – catch up on all the action via a live stream on this page or read through the text updates. The cost of living crisis dominated this week’s PMQs – surprisingly no comments about partygate and no in-depth conversation regarding the Angela Rayner story.
Lib Dem’s Daisy Cooper asks if PM will apologise to the families of people who died in care homes and the care worker staff in light of today’s court ruling.
PM says he renews his apologies and sympathies to those who lost loved ones in care homes in the pandemic.
He goes on to add that the govt did not know much about Covid at that point and did not know how easy it was able to spread asymptomatically.
He said the govt will study today’s court judgement carefully.
Tory Ben Everitt says 287 MPs have been sanctioned by Russia and asks if the govt will maintain its support for Ukraine.
PM says yes and those sanctioned should see it as “a badge of honour.”
Labour’s Jeff Smith asks if PM will apologise for how the Tories refused to take seriously a complaint from one of the victims of the Imran Ahmad Khan – the MP found guilty of assault and for having him on a panel advising the govt on grooming.
PM says Home Offie has already put out a statement about this.
