Question Time in the House of Commons is an opportunity for MPs to question government ministers about matters for which they are responsible.

Prime Minister's Question Time, also referred to as PMQs, takes place every Wednesday that the House of Commons is sitting and gives MPs the chance to put questions to the Prime Minister.

In most cases, the session starts with a routine 'open question' from an MP about the Prime Minister's engagements. MPs can then ask supplementary questions on any subject, often one of current political significance.

The Leader of the Opposition, Jeremy Corbyn, asks six questions and the leader of the second largest opposition party asks two.

About BREXIT - The leave campaign was based on lies, and current polls r showing that more people want to remain - so why dont u have a 2nd refferendum

Theresa May - About Climate Change - it doesnt matter if u r doing better than the other g4 countries - it matters when climate change will not happen - the uk IS NOT doing enough. If it was - why do I see animals choking and eating plastic - litter more common than ever in my area, thousands of people dying of air pollution related deaths - the expense of electric cars and renewable energy.
Also about SATS - ABOLISH IT. I went through it and it was the most stressful period of my life and I have done other tests as well. SATS do not help children but pressurise them.

If just too much immigrants from EU was the issue, can we negotiate just a fair criteria for issuing a visa to talented EU citizens and keep everything else same. Can this help our country to grow economically?
