On the final Prime Minister's Questions before the Christmas recess, Prime Minister Theresa May answered MPs' questions on no-deal preparations, homelessness and more.

Leader of the Opposition, Jeremy Corbyn, asked about Brexit, the meaningful vote, the Northern Ireland backstop and no-deal preparations.

The Scottish National Party's Westminster Leader, Ian Blackford, asked about business preparations in case of no-deal and a vote of no confidence in the Government.

Prime Minister's Question Time, also referred to as PMQs, takes place every Wednesday that the House of Commons is sitting and gives MPs the chance to put questions to the Prime Minister.

In most cases, the session starts with a routine 'open question' from an MP about the Prime Minister's engagements. MPs can then ask supplementary questions on any subject, often one of current political significance.

The Leader of the Opposition, Jeremy Corbyn asks six questions and the leader of the second largest opposition party asks two.
