Prime Minister's Question Time

EDM number 839 in 2014-15, proposed by Paul Flynn on 04/03/2015.
Categorised under the topics of House of Commons and Parliamentary procedure.

That this House is appalled at the demeaning spectacle of Prime Minister's Questions, where the Leader of the Opposition's questions are not answered by the Prime Minister, who uses the occasions as a bully pulpit for his own chosen issues; notes the widely expressed public revulsion at this ill-mannered, pointless spectacle; and calls for its replacement by meetings where the Prime Minister will answer questions from 20 randomly-selected backbenchers in a committee room in an atmosphere of calm and dignity.

This motion has been signed by a total of 9 MPs.
