THERESA May's government has "completely failed" to take action to tackle "burning injustices" in the UK, according to Jeremy Corbyn.

The two two main parties at Westminster may be in the midst of negotiations on the Prime Minister's Brexit deal, however the Labour leader began PMQs by highlighting a Social Mobility Commission report.

The report warned inequality will remain entrenched in Britain "from birth to work" without urgent government action.

Touching on tomorrow's local elections, Corbyn added: "For many people this government has delivered nothing but failure."

He recalled May's pledge to fight against "burning social injustices" on her first day in office, but then flagged the commission's report.

Corbyn asked: "Can the Prime Minister now admit that her government has completely failed to take action to tackle the burning injustices?"

Labour MP Chris Bryant tweeted: "I have never seen the Commons so empty for #PMQs. An empty chamber, a vacant political agenda, a vacuous government."

May said the commission's chairwoman, Dame Martina Milburn, had highlighted a "real commitment in government to try to make a difference in this area" before telling MPs: "I want everyone to have the opportunity to reach their potential, whatever their background.

"And that's why we're improving education, helping to create higher paid jobs, we're boosting home ownership."

Corbyn said the reality is "things are getting worse" under the Government, adding: "Life expectancy in Britain is falling for the first time since 1945.

"Where does the Prime Minister think this government has gone wrong when we've reached the point where people now expect to live shorter lives than they did in the past?"

May replied: "It is not the case that people now are expecting to live shorter lives than they have done."

Corbyn said that a "record 1.6 million food parcels were given out last year alone", attacking the Government's policies for creating a situation where "in one of the richest countries on this earth food banks are now handing out 14 millions meals a year to people, some of whom are in work, who simply haven't got enough to eat".

May began her response by saying the "best route out of poverty..." before she was roundly heckled by Labour MPs, with Speaker John Bercow forced to intervene.

She then continued to say that the best route was through work, and that her government had seen "record numbers of people in employment" and was helping people "keep more money in their pockets" with tax cuts and wage increases.

But Corbyn said: "Many of those people receiving food parcels, which has increased by 600,000 in four years, are actually people in work because of the low wages that they are on."

He added that even the PM's "own Secretary of State admitted that Universal Credit has caused people to rely on food banks".
