What if a Labour Government Has No Money?

The government today announced a ban on zombie knives - but is this going to solve the problem entirely when youth centres and services have been cut. Labour have announced a £100million plan to bring together youth services under one hub which they'd implement when they get into the power. But, overshadowing all of this is the spring budget - the Institute for Fiscal studies published a report suggesting whoever wins the election will inherit the worst government finances in 70 years, especially if they Chancellor decides to cut taxes in the budget. So, what can Labour actually do? We speak to Yvette Cooper, the Shadow Home Secretary, LBC Political Editor Natasha Clark and the IFS Director Paul Johnson.

Playing Chicken With The ERG Over The Rwanda Bill

The European Research Group of Conservative MP's have spoken. They called on the Prime Minister to pull the Rwanda bill and work on new legislation instead because they think that in it's current form, it does not go far enough. As things stands, they may well vote against the government's bill during the second reading tomorrow. Another section of more centrist Conservative MPs - the One Nation Group - will also decide today whether to vote for the government's bill. They may well accept it in it's current form and their concerns are diametrically opposed to the ERG. The PM is going to have to upset one group, but the big question is who will blink first in this game of parliamentary chicken? And what would a defeat in the commons mean for Rishi Sunak's premiership?
