Andrew Neil and Jo Coburn have live coverage of PMQs and political stories. Is the 50p tax rate holding back the recovery? A group of economists think so, but are they right?

Is the 50p tax rate holding back an already feeble recovery? A group of leading economists think so and are calling on the Chancellor to scrap it. The programme asks if they're right.

As the train arriving on platform two is set to be from Germany, MPs ask why the contract for Thameslink trains went abroad instead of to Derby. There are warnings that planes could go abroad too if the government doesn't do anything about airport expansion in south-east England. The programme hears from London First's Baroness Valentine.

Plus, could city TV be just what British viewers have been waiting for?

Discussing the issues and reviewing the first PMQs since July are Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt and the Shadow Environment Secretary Mary Creagh.
