Prime Minister Boris Johnson faces his first PMQs of the new parliamentary session, with the questions now underway.

  • Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer starts his questioning of Johnson on the exam results fiasco, which has caused another U-turn by Johnson's gov't on upgrading exam results for A-level pupils.
  • Johnson, despite being only nine months into his first full term as PM and holding a parliamentary majority of 80 seats, is facing increasing pressure due to the number of policy reversals the gov't has engaged in. Many of his new cohort of MPs elected in 2019 in the north of England are proving difficult to whip and have, without divulging their names, criticised the gov'ts seeming lack of grasp on events.
