Jeremy Corbyn and Theresa May are clashing at Prime Minister's Questions for the first time since the shock general election result.

The latest updates are:

MPs to vote on emergency services cuts
Government's fire inspectors warned in cladding
May urged to give free vote on NI abortions
Tory grammar school plan scrapped
Sturgeon backtracks on second Scottish referendum

The two leaders will face-off ahead of a vote on the Queen's Speech. Labour has proposed an amendment that would stop cuts to emergency services – fire and police.

The Conservatives last night rejected the proposal, arguing that to fully fund emergency services would require a strong economy.

The clash comes as the National Social Attitudes Survey shows a sharp swing in public opinion against austerity and spending cuts.

Theresa May is up. She starts by saying the prosecution of people in relation to the Hillsborough disaster will leave some with "mixed emotions" but that she cannot comment further.
