The next question comes from a Daily Express reporter who asks if the PM will rule out a summer election.

Sunak says he has addressed election rumours in the past – he previously hinted that it will be in the second half of this year.

He is then asked about Met Commissioner Sir Mark Rowley after a group campaigning against antisemitism called for him resign over the force’s handling of pro-Palestinian protests.

The Met apologised twice on Friday after an officer described Campaign Against Antisemitism boss Gideon Falter as “openly Jewish”.

Sunak says he shares the “shock and anger” when he saw the clips of a police treating a Jewish man during a pro-Palestinian demonstration in London.

Sunak says it was right the Met apologised, before he said Sir Mark Rowley and the Met “have a tough job” – but adds that he believes “what happened was wrong”.

He finishes by saying he does have confidence in Sir Mark, so long as he continues to rebuild confidence in the Met.
