Parliament Question Time LIVE Over – watch again public sector pay debate

Debate Key Brexit Bill 2nd Reading - Day 2

Parliament Question Time Live OVER – watch again MPs debating public sector pay.

There was a lot going on in PMQs. North Korea and its long-range missiles, Public Sector pay, Brexit and of course Grenfell Tower fire.

However, it was Public sector pay that dominated the session with no changes announced with regard to earnings. Theresa May emphasised the government would carefully consider any pay review recommendations.

Reaction was not good.  There were demands for an improvement in wages for works across the country.

It is a subject that is likely to return to Parliament and debated in the Commons.  Politicians now their constituents won’t want them to remain silent for too long.

Summer break is coming up and the issue will have to wait until parliament returns. In the meantime any increase in pay will have to be put on hold

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.
