PM challenged on European pressure on prisoner votes

Prime Minister David Cameron has been challenged over European pressure to give prisoners the right to vote.

He was asked by Philip Hollobone, who is a member of the Better Off Out group of MPs campaigning for a referendum on Britain's membership of the European Union, if the government would stand up to the European Court of Human Rights which has insisted that all inmates should be given the right to vote.
