Prime Minister David Cameron began by highlighting today's announcement of a drop of nearly 30,000 in unemployed people.
Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour leader, took the tack of questioning Cameron on the issues of clean air and clean energy for his six questions.
Cameron promises "progress" on air quality, after Corbyn says half a million deaths by 2025 will be due to pollution #PMQs— Westminster Advisers (@WA_Comms) March 16, 2016
PM did not know figures. Corbyn states air pollution affects half a million people. #PMQs— Bellenden (@BellendenLtd) March 16, 2016
Corbyn made light work of Cameron's comeback on air quality that it was his party that had introduced the Clean Air Act of 1956.
Corbyn goes on air pollution, attacking Cameron's recall of the 1956 Clean Air Act saying "things have moved on a bit since then" #PMQs— BM Public Affairs (@BMPubAffairs) March 16, 2016
Quick, witty comeback from Jeremy Corbyn, who states that things have moved on since Clean Air Act 1956 #PMQs— Bellenden (@BellendenLtd) March 16, 2016
But witty responses were not enough for some commentators, who said Cameron had shrugged off Corbyn's lines of attack, yet again, this time on the issue of clean energy.

Despite this, Burson-Marsteller's Hugo Legh said it was Corbyn's best performance to date in PMQs.
To be fair to Corbyn, one of his best performances - both visually and verbally #PMQs— Hugo Legh (@hugolegh) March 16, 2016
The media have made much of the Labour leader's sartorial choices since he took office and some commentators made note of Corbyn's smart attire for Budget day.
SNP leader Angus Robertson then used his questions to lambast the Government's record in Libya and to extract a commitment from Cameron that he would not commit regular forces on the ground before seeking the approval of Parliament.
SNP scrutinises Cameron over Libya - Cameron defends govt's track record #PMQs— Westminster Advisers (@WA_Comms) March 16, 2016
PM answered that Parliament would be informed if there were any plans to send troops to Libya #PMQs— Portcullis (@Portcullis_says) March 16, 2016
According to Brandwatch, there were 7,000 tweets mentioning PMQs with the key topics including air pollution, clean energy and the Budget.
Sentiment towards Cameron was 86 per cent positive and 14 per cent negative while for Corbyn sentiment was only 24 per cent positive, a similar score to Robertson.
