Smith attacks Corbyn for 'not putting May under pressure' at PMQs

Owen Smith has criticised Jeremy Corbyn for putting Theresa May "under no pressure at all" at her first Prime Minister's Questions in July.

Ahead of the first clash between the two leaders since the summer recess, Mr Smith submitted a list of suggested questions to Mr Corbyn.

Mr Smith, who is challenging for the Labour leadership, criticised Mr Corbyn for not bringing up the EU in Mrs May's first appearance, saying continuing to do so would be a "dereliction of duty".

In an open letter, the Pontypridd MP wrote: "I'm sorry to say that in her first PMQs in July, you put Theresa May under no pressure at all.

"You moved from issue to issue with no follow-up for any of your six questions, so that the Prime Minister's answers were not challenged."

He added: "I hope you can improve on recent performances."

In a list of questions posted on his campaign Facebook page, Mr Smith suggested Mr Corbyn ask the Conservative leader if she regretted "not campaigning harder" for Britain to remain in the EU and about concerns surrounding the Brexit process.

He also proposed questions on the points-based immigration system.

Here is the full list of questions:
