Tabloid journalism is in the dock amid more damaging allegations over phone hacking at the News of the World, with claims that former editor Andy Coulson, once David Cameron's right-hand man, authorised payments to police officers. MPs debate the affair in the afternoon and the programme has the latest, talking to the BBC's Nick Robinson and former Conservative Party chairman Norman Fowler.

Who wants to take on David Cameron at PMQs? Last week it was the Speaker. This week, will Ed make more of a mark? The live action begins at midday. Tony Blair's former director of communications Alastair Campbell and the former Shadow Home Secretary David Davis join the programme to give a view on PMQs, phone hacking and the other news of the day.

The programme celebrates the achievements of the House of Commons backbench business committee. It's not as boring as it sounds, as a film tells why. And what do the French do best? PY Gerbeau tells the programme why Britain should not be following suit with more strikes.
