Despite it being Wednesday, the weekly PMQ session did not happen today due to a brief break, only lasting for about 2 weeks as from 20 May until 2 June. The session usually boasts a variety of questions directed towards the Prime Minister.
The weekly PMQ session usually takes place every Wednesday, members of congress gather to address the pressing issues, developments and societal happenings within the UK. The discussion centers the Prime Minister as the main person of interest who has the duty of providing valuable information on strategies to combat current issues within the nation.
The recess of the PMQ session comes during a time when the Prime Minister is facing multiple challenges all at once, specifically due to the on-going coronavirus pandemic and its effect on societal navigation’s, its contributions to an unprecedented shift in everyday mobility and overall complicates the Prime Ministers position.
In addition to the case of the coronavirus pandemic, the Prime Minister is also expected to give full attention to the question of his Chief Aide Dominic Cummings, who caused outrage amongst the public and political figures across the board after admitting to the accusations of him having breached lockdown restrictions.
If Mr Cummings remains in his position as Senior Adviser to the Prime Minister it is likely that the Prime Minister will be questioned about his reasons for not ‘sacking’ him, after multiple calls for Mr Cummings to be relieved of his duties as Senior Adviser.
Seeing as the weekly PMQ’s did not happen today, the weekly PMQ session is said to resume from June 2, with the Prime Minister in a difficult position that requires him to offer valuable solutions and answers to the issues and questions provided.
