PMQs: PM and Robertson on BAE shipyard job losses

The SNP's Angus Robertson attacked David Cameron and Ed Miliband for not raising the 1,800 job losses at shipbuilding bases in England and Scotland, during their exchanges at PMQs.

He said he hoped their thoughts were with the families of those set to lose their jobs.

David Cameron said it was a "vitally important issue" and he was "frankly surprised" the Labour leader had not raised the issue, as he spoke about what jobs would remain.

And he rounded off his answer with a sting to those backing independence by saying that if Scotland became independent, there would be no warships at all.
