Rishi Sunak facing first PMQs since party conference break

MPs will field questions to the Prime Minister after a nearly month-long recess.

Rishi Sunak is taking questions at PMQs for the first time since parliament returned from its conference recess.

The House of Commons break started on September 16 and the chamber returned on Monday.

It follows the Conservative conference in Manchester where the Prime Minister announced the scrapping of the northern leg of the HS2 high-speed rail project.

Meanwhile, Labour held its conference in Liverpool where Keir Starmer described Scotland as the key to the party’s success at the next general election – expected sometime next year.

Its newest MP, Michael Shanks, gave a speech after winning the Rutherglen and Hamilton West by-election.

And the SNP held its conference in Aberdeen, where Humza Yousaf made several announcements including a freeze on council tax rises.
