David Cameron talks to BBC WM during West Midlands visit
Prime Minister David Cameron and Ed Doolan
David Cameron MP answered questions on a variety of issues

Prime Minister David Cameron has been taking calls from radio listeners on BBC WM during a visit to the West Midlands on Tuesday, 3 August 2010.

He was a guest on Lunch with Ed Doolan and spent 25 minutes answering questions about issues in the news and on listeners' minds.

Ed Doolan started by asking Mr Cameron about comments he had made that have caused upset in Pakistan.

The impact of public spending cuts was also under the spotlight.

Economy and schools

Unemployment in the West Midlands was also discussed as were manufacturing and the government's 'Building Schools for the Future' programme.

Ed Doolan asked the Prime Minister about Sandwell where a number of schools had thought that their building projects would go ahead, only to find out the next day that they would not.

David Cameron has led the new coalition government for nearly three months and this was a chance for West Midlands listeners to also put some of their questions to him.
