Gordon Brown is to launch an online version of Prime Minister's Questions.

Mr Brown says he will respond to video clip questions submitted via Downing Street's YouTube website. The prime minister said he would make the web forum a "regular event".

In an introductory video on the Downing Street YouTube site, Mr Brown says he is happy to answer questions on globalisation, climate change, housing, jobs and public services.

"Politicians get a chance in prime minister's question time and other question times - I think it's time the public had a chance," he says.

Users are asked to file their questions for the Ask The PM sessions via the site by 21 June, 2008.
