Prime Ministers' Questions 16 September 15
Interesting PMQs today. I am however, hoping that in future we will not hear mini speeches by the Leader of the Opposition and that we will be able to devote the time to questioning the PM on behalf of our constituents. For the first time since I was elected we did not complete the order paper of tabled questions let alone enable others to ask on the day.

I like many others tried throughout the session – bobbing to be picked. The purpose of the session is to allow Members to hold our Prime Minister to account by representing our local residents and ensuring that key issues are heard and addressed. So let’s hope that our democratic process is reinstated with PMQs that focus on questions to the PM on behalf of those that elected us.
