PMQs gets underway at 12pm today

Prime minister  Rishi Sunak faces his first PMQs today just 24 hours after becoming prime minister . In what has been a turbulent few weeks for the Conservatives, Mr Sunak will be hoping to hit the ground running and at least last longer in the job than his predecessor Liz Truss.

Mr Sunak will face off with Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer with his new cabinet behind and around him. Amongst those returning to the front benches are Suella Braverman, Dominic Raab and Therese Coffey.

PMQs is an opportunity for MPs to scrutinise the prime minister and the government.. With pressure firmly on Mr Sunak with the large lead for Labour in the polls, today’s questions look set to be another defining chapter for the Conservatives.
