Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has criticised Andrea Leadsom's controversial motherhood comments about Theresa May.
"She [Leadsom] shouldn't be raising it as a way of criticism, it shouldn't raised as a matter of public debate," he said in an interview with ITV News.
"A man would never be asked those questions - why should a woman be asked those questions?"
They are both putting themselves forward for leadership of their party, it's up to them to have what I hope will be a serious, intelligent and mature debate about the policies each would wish to follow as leader, not reduce it to this sort of level of personal criticism, it's unfair and it's wrong.
