Jonathan Isaby's verdict: "Another incredibly pedestrian and repetitive performance by Harriet Harman deputising for Brown. William Hague asked her the crucial question of the day - would she agree with Mervyn King on fiscal stimulus - no fewer than three times and she utterly failed to give an adequate answer".
12.25 Is Gordon Brown trying to upstage Harriet Harman?! He is now live on the BBC News Channel addressing an audience in New York!
12.23 Philip Dunne asks why it is the armed forced do not know if they will be getting a pay rise next week. Harman says that the Defence Secretary will doubtless address the issue in a forthcoming Commons debate.
12.22 Tory MP Julian Brazier asks how many foreign terror suspects have been deported; 150, Harman says.
12.17 Cable asks for a tax cut for the lowest paid, but Harman fails to address that point in her answer.
12.16 Harman speaks about the need to work together internationally and decides to mention that Labour made the BoE independent.
12.13 Harman again refuses to answer and talks about Brown meeting with world leaders as the Tories go to the fringes of European politics (a reference to the EPP withdrawal) and accuse the party of having a "millionaire's manifesto".
12.12 Hague gives her a third opportunity to agree with Mervyn King - else the public will conclude that the Government are in open disagreement with him.
12.11 Hague accuses here of dodging the question but says it was understandable that "inheritance may preoccupy the niece of the Countess of Longford" He asks for a yes or no answer on whether she agress with Mervyn King. She declines to do so.
12.09 Harman says the defining moment has been how the Conservatives said they would press ahead with a tax cut for 3,000 millionaires.
12.08 Harman prays in aid the "global unprecedented crisis" line again. Hague quotes Mervyn King verbatim and says his intervention was "extraordinary" and a "defining moment". Does Harman agree with the BoE governor?
12.06 Harman says the Tories would make the recession worse and longer.. Hague makes fun of the fact that several senior cabinet ministers are busy travelling the world rather than getting on with the job. He asks Harman about Mervyn King's comments on fiscal stimulus.
12.05 Harman say £5 billion will be released to businesses; she say 93 businesses and corrects herself to say 93,000. Hague retaliates with a succession of inaction on the Government's part. He quotes Geoffrey Robinson as saying the Government is "behind the game".
12.03 Harriet Harman explains Gordon Brown is in New York ahead of the G20 summit.
12.02 Again the Speaker's watch is slow; we're still on DfID questions...
