Prime minister's questions


Gordon Brown took questions from MPs following a morning press conference with President Obama, telling the Commons he was "proud that our country is holding the G20 meeting".

The prime minister shrugged off David Cameron's call for City Minister Lord Myners to quit after being held up to "public ridicule" over Sir Fred Goodwin's £700,000 pension.

Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg called for the G20 to take action on tackling tax havens, accusing Mr Brown of having presided over "industrial scale tax avoidance in British banks and British businesses".
