Angela Rayner reminded Damian Green that she was a woman today, after the first secretary of state referred to her as a Labour “spokesman”,

Green, who was standing in for Theresa May at prime minister’s questions, took aim at Rayner as he dismissed a Labour MP’s call for tuition fees to be scrapped.

“The very slight problem with her argument is her own education spokesman has admitted that the tuition policy has a £100bn hole black hole in Labour’s student fees policy,” he said.

Rayner, apparently noting she had been referred to as a “spokesman”, shouted across the chamber: “I’m a woman, not a man.”
