  6. Analysis: Is this the endgame for the PM?

    Laura Kuenssberg

    BBC political editor

    BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg says the question on the lips of everyone in Westminster is how long Theresa May’s premiership can go on for.

    Speaking on BBC Two’s Politics Live, she says people involved in cross-party talks are “very aware” that it is “one of the big dynamics” of any deal that could be struck between the Conservatives and Labour.

    “It is such a fragile administration [that] there is a real question,” she says.

    “Is it worth Labour agreeing anything when there is a target on the prime minister’s back?”

    Tory MPs are talking through all the ways Mrs May could be ousted – such as changing the rules of the 1922 Committee of backbenchers to get rid of her in light of an expected wipe-out at the upcoming European elections, or forcing her from office if the Withdrawal Agreement Bill fails.

    But, Laura says, “never say never”.

    She adds: “Theresa May’s sticking power has been absolutely astonishing and the organisation of those who have wanted her out has failed on several occasions.

    “But it really does feel like the endgame now.”

  7. PMQs finishes

    House of Commons

    Parliament

    This week's Prime Minister's Questions have now finished.

    MPs have moved on to discussing points of order.

  8. Tory Brexiteer says activists want May to go

    PMQs

    House of Commons

    Parliament

    Peter Bone

    Conservative MP and Brexiteer Peter Bone says that Conservatives he has worked with in his constituency of Wellingborough want Theresa May to resign.

    They view the deal that Mrs May has reached with the EU as "worse than staying in the European Union", he says.

    The PM thanks local campaigners for volunteering their time for Conservatism and says the government is continuing to work on delivering Brexit.

  9. MP raises concerns over child welfare

    House of Commons

    Parliament

    Labour MP Louise Haigh, the shadow policing and crime minister, says research by the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire show has revealed that four children have been killed by a parent in the last five years after a family court granted access.

    More than 120 MPs have written to the government asking for an inquiry into how family courts in England and Wales treat victims of domestic violence.

    "Does the prime minister agree that there is something wrong with the system," she says.

    A child’s welfare should be "paramount" in decisions, Mrs May responds.

    She says there are new family court guidelines and no evidence yet to suggest a public inquiry is needed.

    But the justice minister will meet with Ms Haigh to discuss the issue, Mrs May adds.

  10. MP interrupted by tannoy

    House of Commons

    Parliament

    Conservative MP Antoinette Sandbach is interrupted by a tannoy announcement.

    "May I have your attention please - the test is now complete," it says.

    "The honourable lady has passed the test," Speaker John Bercow jokes when it stops.

  11. Should the PM take Brexit decision to the people?

    House of Commons

    Parliament

    Labour MP Thangam Debbonaire asks Mrs May if she will go back to the people over Brexit.

    Mrs May says the people have already voted and they gave their decision in the 2016 referendum.

    "It's up to House to respect that decision," she says.

  12. Conservative MP welcomes 'Lucy's Law'

    PMQs

    House of Commons

    Parliament

    Scottish Conservative Ross Thomson welcomes the new "Lucy's Law" to outlaw puppy farming in England.

    He raises concerns that this may only apply to England, so Scotland may get "left behind".

    Mrs May replies that it is "time the SNP government got on with the day job" and "started legislating for the things that matter to the people of Scotland".

  13. SNP MP calls for May's resignation

    House of Commons

    Parliament

    SNP MP Peter Wishart says the UK is an "international laughing stock".

    Now she is "bringing her agreement back" a further time, "has the road now just run out?", he asks.

    "Will she please just go and let Scotland go to?", he adds.

    Mrs May says it is in the interest of Scotland that it stays in the UK.
