Mark D'Arcy talks to The Guardian's Chief Political Correspondent Nick Watt about the big political stories.

He previews the Westminster week with two newly-elected MPs, the Conservative Harriet Baldwin and Labour's Lisa Nandy.

The Liberal Democrat peer and Deputy Leader of the Lords, Tom McNally, discusses the bill which will allow a referendum on changing the voting system and cut the number of Parliamentary constituencies.

And Professor Philip Cowley talks to us about the book he's co-authored on this year's general election. He tells us about the impact of the televised leader debates, the performance of the main parties and why we may be entering an era of hung Parliaments.

Programme editor: Terry Dignan.
