The Prime Minister faces questions every Wednesday
Prime minister Rishi Sunak faces another round of PMQs today in what will be just his third since becoming prime minister. Mr Sunak heads to the House of Commons for the weekly event following a visit to the COP27 summit in Egypt where he met other world leaders for the first time since becoming PM.
Mr Sunak will face off with Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer in PMQs for what is sure to be a lively exchange across the benches. Mr Sunak will be surrounded by his cabinet ministers, including Dominic Raab and Suella Braverman.
In the past week, the biggest event within the government was the resignation of Gavin Williamson as minister of state without portfolio following claims of ‘unethical and immoral’ behaviour.
