PMQs: MPs' laughter as Corbyn reads out email from 'Rosie'

The Commons descended into laughter at Prime Minister's Questions as Jeremy Corbyn read out a question on housing from "Rosie, in her 20s" - coincidentally, the name of Labour's chief whip.

Rosie Winterton looked suitably amused as the Labour leader paused to point her out on his party's front bench.

The "Rosie" who wrote to Mr Corbyn wanted to know what the government was doing to help young people get their own accommodation, Mr Corbyn explained.

"When you get a letter from the chief whip that normally spells trouble," quipped David Cameron - before responding to the question.
