Prime Minister Rishi Sunak will face the leader of the opposition, Sir Keir Starmer, in his second session of Prime Minister’s Questions at midday today. The Labour leader looks set to take aim at former Health Secretary Matt Hancock for announcing he is traveling to Australia for the reality show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! The announcement drew harsh criticism on Tuesday from the opposition and from within his own party. The news comes in a difficult period for the newly appointed Prime Minister who is also facing backlash for his reappointment of Suella Braverman to Home Secretary after security breaches.
