PMQs live: Theresa May fails to guarantee all police jobs following anger at pay proposal

Theresa May is facing Jeremy Corbyn across the Despatch Box for the last time before Parliament rises for the conference season recess.

Brexit is likely to once again dominate the debate, after the Commons voted to pass the Government's EU Withdrawal Bill.

Mr Corbyn is also likely to ask the Prime Minister about plans for lifting the public sector pay cap next year. It was announced this week that police officers and prison officers will receive a 1 per cent pay rise - a move that received criticism because it is less than the rate of inflation, meaning it is, in effect, a pay cut.
