PMQs: Sarwar and Cameron on oil price and Scottish jobs

Labour MP Anas Sarwar said the price of oil falling to $50 (£33) a barrel was bad news for the Scottish oil industry and called on the prime minister to lead a cross-party delegation to meet industry leaders.

David Cameron said the changing price "makes the case for the United Kingdom" with North Sea Oil better offer under the "broad shoulders" of the UK.

And he said it showed the "utter-misguided nature of the SNP" to base a budget on a high oil price.
