Theresa May asked if Nigel Farage will get a peerage

Theresa May tried to laugh off a question over whether UKIP's Nigel Farage could be in line for a peerage.

She declined to give a firm answer one way or the other, saying protocol prevents any public discussion of the matter.

SNP member George Kerevan asked "Can the prime minister confirm or deny if there have been any official conversations at any level regarding giving Nigel Farage a peerage?"

There was laughter in the chamber and cries of "hear, hear" after his question.

Mrs May replied: Well, all I can say to the Honourable Gentleman I'm afraid is that such matters are normally never discussed in public."
