New Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has defended the make-up of his shadow cabinet, arguing that those who criticised him for not putting women in senior roles were "living in the 18th century".
Speaking after he announced the full line-up, Mr Corbyn said he felt they had put together a "great team" which spanned all areas of policy.
For the first time ever, there's a majority of women in the shadow cabinet - 16 to 15.
Who decides on senior roles? Is health more important? You're living in the 18th century if I may say so.
That's when the great offices of state were decided. We have a shadow cabinet of a majority of women, covering all areas of policy and public life, and I think it's a great team we've got together.
He went on to dismiss questions over the differences in political beliefs between himself and some of his new team, saying he would tackle problems when they arose.
He also confirmed he would be attending Prime Minister's Questions on Wednesday, and said he wanted to ensure it would be "a bit less theatre and a bit more fact".
