Prime minister David Cameron called for better diagnosis, knowledge and information to beat prostate cancer, while also admitting in a more light-hearted exchange that he would not be 'fully capable' of growing a moustache.

In prime minister's question time today he was quizzed by Norfolk MP George Freeman on the prostate cancer fundraising initiative, Movember - where people growth facial hair during the month of November to raise funds for the charity.

Mr Cameron told the House of Commons that everyone wanted to see 'more research and better outcomes' for prostate cancer, adding: 'Can I personally praise him (George Freeman) for that magnificent growth on his top lip.'

Mr Freeman has been leading the Westminster Movember campaign, persuading a number of MPs and other people who work in parliament to raise cash.

His question on Movember created much mirth in the House of Commons after his Tory colleague Michael Fabricant taped on an ostentatious moustache.

He continued: 'I think it is important better diagnosis, better knowledge, better information are all vital to beat prostate cancer.'
