    French investigators say it's likely the co-pilot in the Germanwings plane crash deliberately brought down the plane. But what checks are made on the mental state of pilots? As the most secret trial since the second world war aquits Erol Incedal on terror charges, we'll debate the rights and wrongs of judicial transparency. And, the former Cabinet Minister, Margaret Beckett, tells us about the letters - so-called 'black spider memos' - she received from Prince Charles as the Supreme Court rules that his correspondence can be released.

We debate what this means for the peace process and be speak to the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland. Was David Cameron's announcement that he'll step down after a second term a strategic gambit, or an unintentional mistake? One of his backbenchers tells us it will create a diversion.
