Conservative MP Philip Davies speaks to callers about his views that disabled people should work for less than minimum wage, to improve their chances of getting a job.

Plus the chief constable of Greater Manchester tells Stephen about the cuts to policing, and drunken behaviour at the Take That concerts.

More tickets have been released for the 2012 Olympics, but Stephen asks if the way they're being allocated is fair?

Chris Packham and John McCririck debate at the end of hour two whether cats should be subject to a curfew - something that's being tried in Sydney. The aim is to protect birds and wildlife.

And in the final hour the chief executive of a Leicester NHS Trust has sent an email warning that staff may not be paid in the coming months. Barbara McKenna from Unison gives her reaction.
