The names of Smiths tracks make a rare appearance in Prime Minister's Questions as David Cameron is tested by Labour MP Kerry McCarthy.

She reminds him of press coverage claiming members of the Manchester band have banned the PM from being a fan.

Between them, the pair name check several tracks by the musicians - called the "archetypal student band" by the Bristol East MP - on the day when students fees dominated PMQs.
