Sunak at PMQs after inflation drops to 2.3%

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer gives a personal welcome back to South Thanet MP Craig Mackinlay saying he is grateful for meeting him and his family this morning.

“Sometimes this house comes together as one and we do so to pay tribute to your courage and determination,” Starmer says as he praises Mackinlay’s “deep sense of service”.

“It is an example for all of us,” he says.

Turning to the infected blood scandal, Starmer says the House of Commons “was united on the compensation announcement” – which came after the final report of the Infected Blood Inquiry was published on Monday.

But, he says there are “many hard yards to go” and asks the PM if progress can only be made if “we tackle the lack of openness and candour which prolonged victim’s suffering for decades?”.
