Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the last Prime Minister's Questions session before the summer recess.
If you're wondering about the recess - Parliament breaks up next week and will not sit again until 3 September, although MPs say they will not be on holiday all that time, with constituency business to look after.
There's only one subject being talked about in Westminster today, and that's the large rebellion by Conservative MPs during the vote on House of Lords reform last night. Senior Lib Dems have been warning of "consequences" for the coalition if the Conservative leadership cannot deliver this part of the coalition package.
There might also be reference to the reports from MPs who were nearby that David Cameron angrily confronted one of his 2010 intake of MPs, Jesse Norman, in the Commons after he rebelled in the Lords vote.
Another issue which might get raised is how to sort out the issue of social care in England - ahead of the publication of the latest in a long-running series of political attempts to find a better way of meeting the cost of care in old age.
Health Secretary Andrew Lansley will be setting out his social care plans in a statement to MPs straight after PM's questions - you'll be able to watch the statement and all the exchanges with MPs which follow on the live stream from the Commons on this page.
Giving their views to Daily Politics on the PM's questions clashes are due to be Labour's former Olympics champion Tessa Jowell and Constitutional Affairs minister Mark Harper. However Ms Jowell is stuck in traffic and hasn't yet made it to the studio. Could the Olympic Route Network be to blame....?
Eleanor Laing, a Conservative MP who rebelled in last night's Lords reform vote, talking about threats from Lib Dems tells the Daily Politics fundamental constitutional reform shouldn't be used as a "bargaining chip".
The minister responsible for House of Lords refom Mark Harper says he will work with colleagues over the summer on the bill, but won't say whether the government will work with Labour to get agreement on its timetabling.
