Political reporter, BBC News
That concludes our coverage of PMQs for this week, a session where the future of the NHS in England dominated proceedings once again. You can follow the NHS debate in the House of Commons live
on the BBC's Democracy Live site,
and the full 37 minute session of PM's questions will be added to this page shortly. Please join us again next week.
Following Labour's Frank Field's question earlier, party colleague Caroline Flint says there are aspects of Scottish devolution which have to be discussed in England, if the process goes further.
BBC Political Editor Nick Robinson says Ed Miliband is "mining a rich seam" by asking about the NHS three weeks in a row.
Labour's Caroline Flint says the government's NHS changes will increase waiting times.
Tory Nick Herbert says the choice is between letting the NHS stand still or dealing with the future.
BBC political editor Nick Robinson tells Daily Politics the government has given itself a "most extraordinary self-inflicted wound" over the NHS.
That ends an unusually long PMQs, stretched out by Speaker John Bercow as a result of the many interruptions caused by noise.
The PM promises to work to improve nutrition in the developing world.
Another NHS question, Mr Cameron says the government is ensuring investment continues.
The PM says Edinburgh is one of the locations being looked at as a potential HQ for the Green Investment Bank.
Labour's Adrian Bailey says the relationship between pubs and the companies which own them must be looked at. The PM promises to get back on the issue.
Tory Jo Johnson says the UK-US extradition treaty is unfair and should be changed. Mr Cameron says the home secretary is looking at the issue.
Labour's Jim McGovern says the Ministry of Defence has not given a definitive answer on the closure of the Dundee Royal Marine Reserves HQ. Mr Cameron urges everyone to respect the work of the reserve forces.
Tory Stephen Metcalfe urges the PM to keep racism out of football. Mr Cameron says the UK has led the world on the issue.
Tory Peter Bone says his wife thinks the government blocked the deportation of Abu Qatada. He says his son asked him if Nick Clegg was a goodie or a baddie. Mr Cameron says the deputy PM also backs the deportation.
Labour's Graham Jones calls for a meeting on the future of BAE's operations in the UK. Mr Cameron says he is absolutely committed to helping with the Eurofighter Typhoon project.
Tory Priti Patel praises the government's work experience scheme. Mr Cameron says the "overwhelming majority" will back it.

The SNP's Angus MacNeil asks about devolution. Mr Cameron says a third option on a referendum on independence for Scotland should be opposed by the SNP, which wants independence.
The PM says he wants a "vibrant" press to continue after the Leveson inquiry into media standards reports its recommendations.
Tory Charlotte Leslie praises moves towards elected mayors in major English cities. Mr Cameron says "great city figures" of the past had allowed them to flourish in the first place.
Labour's Frank Field says English people feel grievances over the proposed Scottish devolution, asking what measures England needs to gain parity with other parts of the UK. Mr Cameron says the United Kingdom has been very successful and that he wants to tell English people that it works.
Tory Tony Baldry says tomorrow's London conference on Somalia should show criminals and terrorists a determination to restore order to the country. The PM agrees that the "building blocks" should be put in place.
On to other questions now. Mr Cameron says fostering figures should be published to see which local authorities are doing best.
Mr Cameron signs off the party leaders' exchanges by referring to the fact Labour's leader did not mention the topic of the debate which follows PMQs - he says Mr Miliband is "not a leader".
Mr Cameron calls Labour a "bunch of rank opportunists". Mr Miliband says the last government cut waiting lists and offers to match the coalition's record on the NHS "any day of the week". He accuses the PM of "arrogance" and says the bill will become "his poll tax". But Mr Cameron says Mr Miliband is showing an "absence of leadership".
The Labour leader calls for a "straight answer" on the NHS. Mr Cameron says the NHS bill is about integrating health and social care services.
Mr Cameron stands up before Mr Miliband has finished his question, but has to sit down again to much cheering on the Labour benches.
Mr Miliband urges the PM to listen to NHS workers, who he says say the changes will damage HIV treatment. But the PM says the Labour leader would be opposed to the expert groups like the Terrence Higgins Trust providing more services because he opposed other organisations taking part in the NHS.
John Bercow asks the House to preserve "parliamentary manners", adding that he is "not frightened of anything".
Speaker John Bercow calls for a "tranquil" atmosphere. Mr Miliband continues on the Downing Street meeting. He asks if the PM is planning changes to the NHS bill. Mr Cameron says the bill will boost patient choice.
The Labour leader mocks the PM's "ridiculous summit". He says the coalition has lost the confidence of NHS staff. Mr Cameron replies that Labour used to support many of the proposed reforms. The atmosphere builds.
Mr Miliband mocks the PM's Downing Street health conference on Monday, which "excluded the vast majority" of groups representing NHS workers. Mr Cameron says the government will meet the challenges facing the health service.
Ed Miliband echoes Mr Cameron's tributes.
On the coach crash in France in which UK teacher Peter Rippington was killed, the PM says it is a "desperately sad case".
Labour's Clive Betts asks about police cuts. The PM says recorded crime is down under this government.
We are under way. David Cameron pays tribute to senior aircraftman Ryan Tomlin, killed in Afghanistan, and to the journalist Marie Colvin, who has died in Syria.
Nick Robinson says he'll be amazed if Ed Miliband doesn't lead on the NHS.
Daily Politics presenter Andrew Neil, who hired Marie Colvin when he edited the Sunday Times, calls her the "foremost foreign correspondent of her generation".
BBC political editor Nick Robinson reveals that the PM will pay tribute to Marie Colvin at PMQs.
Foreign Secretary William Hague has tweeted on the news of the death of journalist Marie Colvin in Syria. He writes: "Saddened by terrible news about Marie Colvin. She died helping people of Syria share their plight with the world. A great loss for us all."
Labour's Caroline Flint questions, on Daily Politics, whether the work experience schemes will lead to permanent jobs.
On Daily Politics, Tory Nick Herbert says the campaign against the government's work experience programme for young people on Jobseeker's Allowance is misleading.
Justice Secretary Ken Clarke has arrived in the Commons, looking jolly.
It's Scotland Questions in the Commons at the moment. The chamber is about a half to two-thirds full.
Away from the political world, there's been the sad news this morning that the Sunday Times journalist Marie Colvin has been killed in the Syrian city of Homs. Politicians have been paying tribute to her and we expect more during PMQs.
In the Daily Politics studio, Home Office minister Nick Herbert says changes to the NHS are vital. Labour has called a debate on the issue, which will take place this afternoon in the Commons.
The nation is still reeling after the singer Adele was cut short during her acceptance speech for the best album award at last night's Brits. Will Speaker John Bercow be similarly restrictive with any waffling contributions today?
Drum roll. The winners in this week's draw to see which MP gets to ask David Cameron questions are... in first place, Labour's Clive Betts. In second his party colleague Mary Glindon. After that the Conservatives Tony Baldry and Charlotte Leslie.
So what will come up? The economy might, for once, not be mentioned by Ed Miliband, as this week's government borrowing figures were better than many had expected. The NHS bill is still causing problems for ministers, so that could be a likely contender.
The studio guests on Daily Politics are Conservative Nick Herbert and Labour's Caroline Flint.
