    M241 - Motion on PMQs, The Rt. Hon. Cryptographic MP

    The House calls upon the Rt. Hon. Prime Minister to choose the day on which PMQs are answered and hold weekly sessions as per the MHoC Guidance document:

    1)The Prime Minister may choose the day of the week they answer Prime Minister's Questions. They should endeavour to be online as much as possible in the 24 hours after the update on that day.
    2) MPs can PM the Speaker questions to be put to the Prime Minister. These should, at least roughly, relate to government actions, policies, aims or ideals.
    3) By midnight two days before the chosen day, the Speaker should PM up to 8 questions to the Prime Minister. No more than one question should be from any single MP, except the Leader of the Opposition who may ask two. In the event of there being more than 8 questions for the Prime Minister, the Speaker should decide which 8 to send, but should aim to have questions from a range of parties and those from the Leader of the Opposition should take precedence.
    4) The Prime Minister should answer the questions by PM to the Speaker by 5pm on the chosen day, ready for the evening update, when the Speaker should post them in the House.
    5) The thread will stay open for follow-up questions to the Prime Minister until the update the next evening. All members may ask a single follow-up question, except the Leader of the Opposition who may ask two.
    6) If the Prime Minister is unavailable, the Deputy Prime Minister should stand in. If they are also unavailable the Chancellor should, if there is one. If none of these three are available Prime Minister's Questions does not happen.

    Aye. It's just a shame the proposer's party didn't implement this last term if it was that important.

    I fully support this. PMQs is a good way to boost activity and keep the government to account.

    Both i and Qwertish did hold PMQ's. I think it was just towards the end that it waned.

    Yeah, not very often though.

    I like PMQs, they're much more calm online. It's a shame they've not been very regular recently - I appreciate there's perhaps not enough new legislative activity to always warrant it, but I think there's always a development in the news somewhere that's worth bringing to attention.

    As long as there's realistic exemptions for exam times. (Let's not forget - people here have lives outside TSR) It's good to get PMQs up and going again.

    Aye. :yy:

    I would also welcome a limit on 'fun' or 'silly' questions, one as a maximum for each PMQ session.
