Jackie Ashley of The Guardian looks behind the scenes at Westminster.

It's hard to manage a crisis and keep ahead of the game when your adversary is the force of nature. So how has the government been handling the havoc wreaked by floods and storms? Bernard Jenkin, chair of the Public Administration Committee, and Baroness Sally Morgan, a former Downing St adviser to Tony Blair, on keeping control of events.

Plus at Westminster MPs discuss the ban on smoking in cars carrying children, safer cycling and Ed Miliband's big new idea on people powered public services.

The editor is Marie Jessel.
