Not one but two unguarded comments filmed at


Undiplomatic day at Buck House yesterday as the Queen called


Chinese officials "very rude", just hours after David Cameron


told her that Nigeria and Afghanistan are


The two sides in the EU referendum wheel out their big guns today.


Boris kicks off a Vote Leave battle bus campaign in Cornwall


and Gordon Brown set out the "positive" arguments


And what will Jeremy Corbyn choose to ask David Cameron


at Prime Minister's Questions today?


We'll have full coverage live at midday.


And Brexit is getting the red carpet treatment tonight with a glitzy


world premiere of 'Brexit: The Movie'.


It is the single most important political decision any of us will


make in our lifetime. Every continent is outgrowing Europe. It


is not with in our economic interests to remain in the European


Union. Why did we not get invited? We have.


Oh! Have you looked out your frock? Yes. All that is coming up in the


next hour and. With us for the duration,


and the Shadow Foreign Secretary Hilary Benn.


So, not one but two moments of candour caught on camera


First, the Queen was filmed at a garden party saying Chinese


officials were "very rude" to the British


Her comments came just hours after the Prime Minister


was recorded at an event to mark her 90th birthday talking


about this week's anti-corruption summit in London.


He said that Afghanistan and Nigeria were "fantastically corrupt".


David Cameron there. Hillary Benn, as the President of Nigeria and


Afghanistan are attending the summer, how awkward is that


conversation going to be when David Cameron greet them? I think it will


be a bit awkward. If you listen to what the relatively new Nigerian


President is trying to do, he's trying to tackle corruption in


Nigeria. If you look at the Transparency International


Nigeria. If you look at the you will find that they are quite


high up the list. I suppose it you will find that they are quite


is almost no such thing as a private conversation. It


is almost no such thing as a private They knew that Cameron was there but


perhaps they didn't think They knew that Cameron was there but


was full stop a diplomatic disaster or a hiccup? As Hillary said, if you


look at what they or a hiccup? As Hillary said, if you


Nigeria says that his country had become one of the most corrupt


countries and he is tackling it. It is said he was shocked and


embarrassed. Yes, but that is what he said about his own country. It is


not the same as someone else saying it. That is fair, but these


countries come because they know we have to do better. As a world


community, we have to cooperate to do the mac -- cooperate to deal with


some of the big issues around money-laundering and corruption. It


is more significant in the end than the comments themselves. Do you


think David Cameron was showing off? I think Hillary is right that there


is no such thing as a private conversation. We all say things,


is no such thing as a private don't we? Do we? Tell me. Don't we?


I don't we? Do we? Tell me. Don't we?


every single conversation they have... But when you have the Queen


every single conversation they informal situations. The reality is,


we know there are corruption problems in


we know there are corruption the world. There is an index of


these things, some the world. There is an index of


further to go, and we are determined to achieve more. Which bit of the


sentence was not true? David Cameron is right, isn't he? There is a


problem. There is grand corruption, where people take large amounts of


money and stuff it in their pockets or spirit it abroad, and that is why


action against money laundering is important. But the result is a petty


corruption. You have state officials and teachers who say, I will teach


your child but I am not paid enough of a salary to look after my family


and myself, so would you make a contribution? Is it happens in some


countries in the world. Not here? Of course, not here. Public sector


salaries are really low. There are two mac problems. You need good


governance, to collect your taxes effectively. Why are we giving aid


to Nigeria? Is our view is that in order to tackle some of the endemic


problems, you need all sorts of things. We have been giving it over


for a long time and he says they are still fantastically corrupt. You


would hardly take the view that every country that does not breach


our standards should not be a recipient of aid. Is it improving


Rabi throwing money down the drain? -- improving or are we throwing


money down the drinkers like do you stand by and do nothing, let people


suffer? Public policies have to be in place to address those problems.


Let's turn to the Queen and her comments about Chinese officials,


because there was obviously an incident. In terms of revealing our


true feelings towards Chinese official, it shows how tense that


situation is between us and the Chinese on these formal state


visits, doesn't it? I wasn't aware of those tensions. The Queen in


particular is entitled to private conversation. I don't propose to


comment on what she said. What about you, John Hayes, will you comment?


Does this our things with China? It would be unpatriotic to comment on


what the sovereign says. Do you want every one of your private


conversations recorded? Certainly not. In those situations, if I were


there and had said something untoward, what impact do you think


it would have on relations? I think Her Majesty is widely respected


across the world. She has a lifetime of service, recognised here and


abroad, and that is what really counts. Why shouldn't she just


express our opinion? She was obviously irritated by what


happened. She is the sovereign, why shouldn't she say what she thinks?


Because she has a particular role which she has carried out with


extraordinary skill, diligence, dedication and grace over the years.


Maybe she would take the view that there should not be a directional


mike pointing at me while I am having a private conversation. It is


the first time that I have noticed private conversations being picked


up. The cameraman for Buckingham Palace is paid for by the


broadcaster, but I don't know about the sound. It is interesting that


you raise that. I am working on a bill in the House, the investigatory


Powers Bill, which deals with these issues was not at what point and in


which way should privacy be protected? It is an important


discussion in our free society. We have always taken it as read that


there is a public space and a private space. This is a public


space. There is a camera and a microphone. It is a public event.


The Queen has done these for years. She knows the score. It was her


camera that was there. She knows about the sound. The Prime Minister


knew it as well. They knew exactly what they were doing. There is a


difference between a conversation, and this was a conversational


matter, and a public statement, a pronouncement, a speech, a meeting


or discussion of a formal kind. That is the difference here. So are you


are not -- so you are not calling for these to be switched off? I


won't discuss what the Queen does and doesn't say. This is public, and


there is a microphone, so beware. And we know that the Queen watches


us every day when she can. Now the elections of last


week are out of the way, the EU referendum campaign has


intensified on both sides. The focus is now


the vote on June 23rd. Both sides have wheeled


out their big guns today. Boris Johnson launched a Vote Leave


battlebus tour in Cornwall and Gordon Brown made the patriotic


case for Britain to remain But they are just the latest


in a series of high Here's JoCo to bring


us up to speed. National security took centre stage


on Sunday as two former spy chiefs Jonathan Evans and John Sawers,


formerly of MI5 and MI6, said counter-terrorism was a "team


game" and that it was easier for countries to share


data within the EU. But the Justice Secretary


Michael Gove hit back, accusing the spy bosses


of being "flat wrong". And the Prime Minister raised


the stakes on Monday, arguing that He said Britain had brought together


countries that had been "at each other's throats for decades"


and that leaving the EU would risk But Boris Johnson hit back,


saying it was preposterous to suggest that leaving the EU


could trigger World War III. Smith tried to get the focus back


on to social justice, arguing that the EU was "a friend


of the haves rather morning, Gordon Brown described


leaving the EU as not British and not in keeping with the spirit of


Churchill. Britain is not a position only to be


a member of the European Britain is in a position and should


be a leader in the European This referendum if it's


about anything is about what kind of Britain we are and what kind


of Britain we aspire to become. We should be a leader in Europe,


not just a member. We should not be fully out


and we should not be half We should recognise that the world


has changed since the first referendum, and we should be


the advocates of cooperation in an Gordon Brown, speaking at the London


School of economic. Hilary Benn, Gordon Brown took Labour to one of


its worst defeats in modern times. He is distinctly less popular south


of the border than he is north of the border. Is he an asset for the


Remain camping? He certainly is. Look at the KC has made. This notion


that we are having to listen to from the League campaign that somehow we


put upon in Europe, that we have no influence, is nonsense. I think


everybody knows it. In the three years that he was Prime Minister, in


what way did the lead Europe? We have always played a leading part in


Europe. In his time in Chancellor and the part that Europe played in


making new commitments to aid and debt relief, that is leadership that


helps unlock change. When he was Minister, in what way... On climate


change. Everyone was in favour of that. Britain was the first country


to put climate change legislation on the statute book. We did that as an


individual country, not as a member of the EU. You are asking about the


influence we had. The leadership that Britain gave, including during


the time that Gordon was Prime Minister, on climate


the time that Gordon was Prime have an impact. You are seeing the


fruit of that. The have an impact. You are seeing the


agreed to climate change if it hadn't been for Britain? I'm not


saying that. I am saying that we are in


saying that. I am saying that we are the European Union helps us to


manage face in the world, whether it be


climate change, the refugee face in the world, whether it be


would be to deny us that shouldn't be turning our face away


from an important partnership with our immediate


from an important partnership with way have we lead on the refugee


crisis? Europe has had a difficult time on that. The Conservative


crisis? Europe has had a difficult the crisis,


crisis? Europe has had a difficult Minister has had to be pushed at


every stage. Minister has had to be pushed at


picture of the child appeared on the front pages, he said, we have done


enough for Syria. How should we have led?


How should we have lead? It is European countries working together.


He should not have had to be battered into agreeing to take


unaccompanied, child refugees who have made their way into Europe. At


least we have an institution that is trying to grapple with what you


would recognise as trying to grapple with what you


difficult issue. Are you worried that given Jeremy Corbyn's lukewarm


attitude to him that there is a problem getting the Labour vote out


for remain and that is why Mr brown could be important? We are all now


making the argument. The local elections are out of the way and the


Labour Party is focused on one thing only, which is winning the


referendum on the 23rd of June. We have a very distinct message we are


bringing because Europe has helped support workers' writes,


improvements in the environment. As Gordon said today, the idea that the


British way is somehow to turn our back on the European Union, the fact


is we are an influential and powerful nation. I was asking you


about the Labour vote because the Remain Campaign cannot win without


the Labour vote coming out in substantial numbers. It looks like


the conservative vote is going to split 55-45 to leave. So you need


that Labour vote, agree? Yes, indeed. The vast majority of the


Shadow Cabinet and the major unions, we are taking a distinct message as


to why it is good for growth investment and security. We have now


had two former head of MI5, one former head of MI6, 13 former


leading figures in the white House, former secretaries of State, all


warning about the UK leaving, all saying it would be bad about our


security. What bit of that message are you not getting? Europol is


taking the opposite view. There are all kinds of people who share my


view. That is two. The overwhelming weight of expertise is against you.


Of course Hillary is right, that many of the problems we face are pan


national. And of course Gordon brown is right, the world has changed


since 1975. But it means it has changed so we have to reach out well


beyond Europe. I have just come from a meeting with the head of Interpol.


They have reached to 190 countries. We have that whether we are in or


out. Precisely, that is my point. In what way are we more secure by


leaving? Two ways. There are issues about how we determine our security


policy and there is a creeping attempt by the European Union to


have more say over that and we have resisted that the government. Why


would that make us less secure? I believe our security and


intelligence services and successive governments have got security policy


right. I think we do have the skills and confidence. So we have got it


right as members of the EU, so why change? We do not have control. Are


you seriously telling me French intelligence is going to allow


Brussels of all places, after what has happened, Brussels to take


control of French intelligence? The European Union has a creeping desire


to take more control of security. We are resisting the government. Give


me an example. They are developing a pan-European policy view about how


security policy should be gauged and implemented. That is job. No, it is


the fact that we want to do things at our national level. We need to


share intelligence. Yes, that is operational, of course we need to


share information. Were we to leave the European Union, where it is in


the mutual interest of countries they will not continue to share


information? Will the French and the Germans do that? Of course not. Your


argument is undermined by the voices of experience, people whose job it


has been to keep the nation and the country safe and to protect us and


they said this would be bad for our security. We are not part of the


Schengen passport free arrangement which shows we are able to exercise


our own judgment on things like that, just as we are not in the


euro. But we participate in sharing information through the Schengen


information system. As you know, that is important to our security.


Why would you want to walk away from arrangements that help to protect us


when the voices of people whose day-to-day job it is, and has been,


to protect as I saying that would not be a good idea. Contrary to the


picture that the income paying want to paint, what I am saying is can


anyone seriously believe that countries would cease to want to


cooperate and share information like you describe if we were outside the


EU? Of course they would not because they want to keep their people say.


Let's assume we can continue to share bilaterally whether we are in


or out, but, Hillary and, what intelligence would we no longer


enjoy if we were not in the EU? A lot of it would depend on what


happens if the nation were to vote to leave. The honest answer is we do


not know. What exists among EU intelligence arrangements that we


would not enjoy if we left? Would we have access to the Schengen


information system. Can you explain what information Schengen shares.


Where there are warning notices and other information, there has been a


big step forward... Interpol do that. Hang on, the Parliament has


recently agreed arrangements on sharing of data which is helping to


make passenger names... We can do that already. If you filled in


advance to go to the United States, that happens in America, we could do


that to any country if we wanted to. We could, but you asked me what


would change? And the answer is we do not know and that is the weakness


of the Leave Campaign's argument. Let's take this passenger database.


You have had to share passenger data to go to the US for some time and


vice versa. There has been a push to get that done in Europe as well and


the European institutions, the European Parliament, have stopped


it. Where does that help us? It is only now they have finally agreed.


As you have just answered the question, the European Parliament


has now agreed to rules that would enable that data to be shared and


that is a practical example of how cooperation work. It took ten years.


It helps our security. We need cooperation work. It took ten years.


doing things in other parts... The idea that there is some kind of


competition that either we cooperate in Europe or globally, we need to do


both. We need to move on. We need to move on. We have got another several


weeks of this, there is no need to rush.


How many days? It says 42.

What are the exact six questions that Jeremy Corbyn is going to ask


today? No questions about rogue marking or leaking of anything


before the real test comes. A couple of suggestions have made their way


to meet this morning. One is housing because the laws and the commons are


locked in because of the housing bill. Although it has not been


ringing bells all over the place because politics is so busy, one


minister described to me recently it is the most ideological


controversial thing that the government is trying to do. I was


struck by that. That would fit with Jeremy Corbyn's passions. There was


another suggestion he might start to talk about the EU referendum, which


is something he has not done until now. If he does, it is hard to see


where he could go on it. What is the question? This morning I am not


going to make a crystal clear prediction. I have made a couple of


suggestions, but no leaks in the Daily Politics studio. Is there any


chance you think that given the Prime Minister's quite strident


attack last week on the kind of platforms that Mr Sadiq Khan was


sharing, and he has no comfortably won the City Hall, more so than Mr


Livingstone or Mr Johnson, is there any chance that Jeremy Corbyn may


ask for our retraction or an apology or a withdrawal? That could be quite


controversial. Yes, it would and it would be difficult for the Prime


Minister as well. Whatever has happened in the campaign committee


is now one of the most powerful politicians in the country. And he


has reached out. And he has reached out in a very pointed way in


contrast to Jeremy Corbyn's leadership. It would be tricky for


the Prime Minister, given that last week's Prime Minister 's questions


was more like Jeremy Corbyn's camp Corbyn. The Prime Minister used it


as a robust defence of that Goldsmith. You never know, it would


make for a very interesting positioning challenge for the Prime


Minister. Is problem is when he goes on something like housing, which is


hugely important, it should have been the most important subject in


the London election campaign, it was not important enough for last year's


general election, and it is not already up there in the headlines,


unless there is some major breakthrough or development, it


struggles to make its way into the news tomorrow unless there is


something that PMQs. It could end up being like a paper aeroplane and end


up on the floor, not hitting any of the targets. You are right,


grappling with the platform you get at PMQs, like it or not, it is the


best opportunity that any opposition leader has got to try to get into


the mainstream debate. Because of that they tend to have the best


chances of success of getting their agenda across when they choose to go


on the issues that are already running at 100 miles an hour, the


issues already preoccupying Westminster, those that we know the


public are very concerned about. You are right, that is a problem Jeremy


Corbyn has come up against, whether or not it is housing or mental


health. Other issues like that are of huge importance to the country.


But we should say last week, like the previous week, Labour very


successfully and Lucy Powell has pushed education again and again.


Nicky Morgan, the Education Secretary, has had a very difficult


time. Jeremy Corbyn at PMQs was part of that campaign. The Prime Minister


still tried to deny things and Innocenti won that argument and the


test in which they won it is they sneaked it out on Friday when


everyone was trying to digests the election results. Talk about burying


bad news. I think Nicky Morgan has not got off scot-free because since


then she has had a very torrid session in the House of Commond,


struggling to explain precisely what the government's policy now is. The


government is trying to have it both ways on academy schools. They are


saying it is our intention that every school should be an academy.


That was always the case. Why don't they get it when you have got such a


small majority? You have got to do what used to be done, you produce a


Green paper first of all to get the reactions, take into account the


criticism and then go to the policy. Or do what the government used to


do. In coalition they had a chord. They had a huge majority when the


Lib Dems and Tories got together, 80 or so. Your viewers might say it was


79. One minister said to me that all that used to have to happen was that


George Osborne used to have to get Nick Clegg to agree. They used to


have robust argument inside that quartet. They were tested. That


internal challenge was there. Now, because they take a rather dim view


of the effectiveness of the opposition, the conversation about


where will the opposition pickles has gone. We go straight over.


This morning, I had meetings with ministers and colleagues and I will


have further meetings today. Even fantastically corrupt Nigeria


is asking Britain to clean up its act and introduce beneficial


ownership registers in the overseas territories. We'll be Prime Minister


achieve this tomorrow at the anti-corruption Summit? -- will be


Prime Minister? I want to check the microphone is on before speaking. I


thank him for his question. The answer is yes. We have asked three


things of the overseas territories and Crown dependencies - automatic


exchange of tax information, a common reporting standard for


multinational companies, and for central beneficial ownership


registry so that UK enforcement can know who owns companies based there.


They have delivered on the first two, and they will be following and


delivering on the third. That is what he asked for and what he is


getting. Mr Speaker, in my constituency there is unprecedented


housing growth. Does the Prime Minister agree that we must build


sufficient starter homes so that the dream of home ownership becomes


something that everybody really can aspire to? I want to thank my


constituency neighbour and honourable friend for raising that


question. The fact is, we are building more houses right across


England. We are building more affordable homes, and the


legislation going through this House and the other place will make sure


we deliver our pledge of 200,000 starter homes. Those are the ones we


want to see, affordable for people to buy. I hope that even at this


late stage, the Labour Party in the House of Lords. Blocking this bill.


Jeremy Corbyn. -- the Labour Party in the house of lords will stop


blocking this bill. Thank you, Mr Speaker. Since we


often celebrate great national event in this House, would be Prime


Minister join me in wishing Sir David Attenborough a very happy 90th


birthday and thank him for the way he has presented nature programmes


on television and awakened the ideas of so many people to the fragility


of our ecosystem and educated a whole generation? Mr Speaker, on


this side of the House, we are fully aware... I haven't asked the


question yet, it's OK! We are fully aware that the European Union has


strength the rights of workers in many ways. In March, while the Prime


Minister was trying to undermine workers' writes with his trade union


Bill, the European Commission put forward proposals to close loopholes


in the posting of workers directive which would stop employers


exploiting foreign workers and undercutting national rates of pay.


We'll be Prime Minister confirm that his Government will protect workers


and will back these reforms to stop this undercutting and grotesque


exploitation of workers across this continent? First, I join the right


Honourable gentleman in wishing a very happy birthday to David


Attenborough. Many of us in this House feel that we grew up with him


as our teacher about the natural world and the environment. He is


remarkable. I am proud to say that the Royals survey ship, the Arctic


ship, will be named after David Attenborough. There was strong


support for Boaty McBoatface, and I think the submarine, or the life


raft, on the boat will be named that. On the workers directive, we


are looking closely, working with our partners. We see some merit in


what is being proposed. I can say that the yellow card procedure has


been invoked by national parliaments, demonstrating the


importance of these safeguards, much of which we reacted -- achieved in


my re-negotiation does not the best thing we can do for workers' writes


in this country is celebrate the national living wage introduced by


this Government. The national minimum wage was a Labour


introduction. The living wage proposed by the Chancellor is a


corruption of the very idea of it. It is not, in reality, a proper


living wage. But, Mr Speaker, my question was about the posting of


workers directive which would prevent the grotesque exploitation


by unscrupulous employers of workers being moved from one nation to


another in order to undercut the wages of the second nation. We'll be


Prime Minister be absolutely clear? Will be British Government support


this very important reform to stop this exploitation? As I said, we are


working with the Dutch presidency. We think there is merit in a lot of


the proposals, but we want to make sure we get the details right. Let


me pull them up on something - he has described the national living


wage as a corruption. It is ?7.20 per hour, a ?20 per week pay writers


of the poorest in our country. I really think he ought to get up and


say he supports the national living wage and thanks the Government for


introducing it. I support a wage rise, obviously does not the point I


am making is that it is not a living wage. It is not a living wage as is


generally understood. Mr Speaker, saying yes seems to be one of the


hardest word for the Prime Minister. For radar time, could he say whether


he does or does not support the posting of workers directive? He


might be aware that Patrick Minford, a former economic adviser to


Margaret Thatcher, has said that the European Union has a negative effect


on the City of London, and he would want the shackles European


regulation removed. Does the Prime Minister believed that membership


hurts the City of London, or does he believe that European Union


regulation of the finance sector in Britain and British- administered


tax havens would help the sort of bad practice exposed by the Panama


papers or underlined by my friend in his earlier question today? This is


an area where we basically agree about the European Union, so I will


try to identify a question and answer as positively as I can. On


Patrick Minford, I completely disagree with the Economist Patrick


Minford. He wants to see manufacturing industry in our


country obliterate it, and I think it would be disastrous to follow his


advice. In terms of the City of London, we need the right regulation


for the City of London to continue its massive rate of job creation and


wealth creation in our country, but we also need to remain members of


the single market because it is absolutely vital for this important


sector of our economy. I hope that on that, as on the national living


wage, we can find some agreement. The question I also put the Prime


Minister, which perhaps he wasn't listening to, was what he was going


to do... What I asked was what he's going to do about the UK-


administered tax havens which receive large sums of money from


dodgy sources which should and must be closed down, as should any tax


evasion in the City of London. We need a British Government that is


prepared to chase down this level of corruption. This Government has done


more than any previous Government to deal with this issue, making sure


that our overseas territories and Crown dependencies are not tax


behave -- tax havens but behave in a responsible way. We are now taking


part in the automatic exchange of tax information, which didn't happen


before. We have signed up to a common reporting standard for


multinational companies, which didn't happen before. And there will


be central registry so we can find out who owns the companies. All of


these things are real progress. Of course, we would like to go further


in her public registry is beneficial ownership, as we are introducing in


this country, not because of the Labour Government but because of a


decision by a Conservative Prime Minister, but where I would urge him


to be fair is that many of the Crown dependencies have gone much further


than many developed countries. Indeed, you actually get more


information now out of some of our Crown dependencies and overseas


territories than you would out of the United States in terms of


Delaware. Let's be fair on these, for which we have a responsibility,


we are making them improve their record and he should acknowledge it.


we are making them improve their Mr Speaker, a month ago, the Prime


Minister informed the House that he welcomed the European Union


proposals on country by country taxed transparency reporting. We


agreed with that. Yet, on the 26th of April, Conservative MEPs voted


against these proposals. Did they not received the memo of what?


People expect that people pay their tax in this country. Tomorrow, the


European Parliament will be voting again on country by country


reporting. Can he assure the House that Conservative members of the


European Parliament will support these measures as he told us they


European Parliament will support thing is that we support these


measures. The Government supports these measures. Indeed, these


measures have only come forward because it has been a Conservative


Government in the United Kingdom proposing them. The only area of


disagreement, I would suspect, between himself and myself is, I


don't think we between himself and myself is, I


has always been a position of Labour Government and previous Conservative


governments, that while we want to make sure that these territories


behave properly, we don't actually make them set a minimum tax rate.


That is the difference between us. If he wants to swap voting records


of Labour and Tory MEPs, let's have a whole session, because I have


plenty of material in here. That was a very long answer... When he could


have quite simply said whether or not he supports these proposals, and


if his Conservative MEPs will vote for them. Mr Speaker, the Prime


Minister will be very well aware of the concern across the whole country


about the question of unaccompanied child refugees across Europe. They


are in a desperate plight and a dangerous situation. Everyone's


heart reaches out to them, but we have to do more than that and be


practical in our help for them. I got a letter this week from a


voluntary worker with child refugees called Hannah. She wrote about these


children, some of whom have family members in this country. Can the


Prime Minister confirm that in respect of the response to Lord dubs


amendment, there will be no delay whatsoever in accepting 3000


unaccompanied child refugees into this country to give them the


support they need and allow them to enjoy the childhood they and all our


children deserve? All I can say is that we will follow his amendment.


That is now the law the land. The amendment says we have to consult


very carefully with local authorities to make sure that as we


take these children in we are able to house them, clothe them and feed


them, make sure the properly looked after. So we need to look at the


capacity of our care system. If you look at some councils, particularly


in Kent and southern England, they are already struggling because of


the number unaccompanied children who come in. Two figures, last year,


3000 unaccompanied children arrived and claimed asylum in the UK even


before the scheme that is being introduced. Second, under Dublin,


children with a connection to the UK can already claim asylum in France


or Italy then come to the UK. We have accepted 30 such transfers


since February. What I can say is, there will be no delay, we will get


on with it as fast as we can, but in order to follow the law we have to


talk to local authorities first. During President Obama's recent


visit, was the Prime Minister able to talk to him about the Chinese


dumping of steel and the robust action he has taken in the United


States to address it, including increasing tariffs to 288%? Will he


increased the tariffs and tell the Chinese to go to the back of the


line? I did discuss this with President Obama and both the


European Union and the US have taken action against Chinese dumping. The


excess steel capacity in China is 25 times higher than the UK's entire


production. The anti-dumping tariffs we have produced in the EU have been


very effective and in some areas have reduced Chinese exports to as


much as 98%. EU action does work and if we were outside the EU, we might


be subject to those tariffs ourselves. The Prime Minister's


government was elected with 37% of the vote, so I am sure he would


acknowledge the success of Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP in being


returned victoriously for a third time with 46%, the highest of any


political party in national elections anywhere currently in


Western Europe. Mr Speaker, on the anti-corruption Summit, has the


Prime Minister read the appeals from Nigerian campaigners who say, our


efforts are sadly undermined if countries such as your own are


welcoming our corrupt to hide their ill gotten gains in your luxury


homes, department stores, car dealerships and private schools and


anywhere else that will accept their cash with no questions asked? The


role of London's property as vessels to hide this money, what is the


Prime Minister going to do about this? I am delighted to congratulate


Nicola Sturgeon on her victory, as I want to congratulate Ruth Davidson


on Harris. We have something in common, the SNP have gone from a


majority to a minority, while the Conservatives have gone from


coalition to a majority. Next week he can get on with asking me how we


are getting on with ordering some more pandas for Edinburgh zoo. The


question he asks about the corruption Summit is right. The


whole point about holding this summit is to say that the action is


necessary by developed countries as well as developing countries. One of


the steps we are making is that foreign companies have to declare


with the beneficial owner is to make sure that plundered money from


African countries cannot be hidden in London. It would be helpful if he


could confirm that that list would be publicly available and not just


accessible to the police. Seeing as the Prime Minister is prepared to


lecture other countries on corruption, could he explain why


seven police forces in the UK have launched criminal investigations


into Conservative MPs for potential electoral fraud? Mr Speaker, it is


very serious, so how is it that a Conservative crime and policing


commissioner can serve in such a role when being under police


investigation? First of all, let's be clear about this anti-corruption


Summit. Nobody is lecturing anybody. One of the reasons this issue does


not get addressed is because countries and politicians are too


worried about addressing it, knowing that no country is perfect, nor is


any politician. It is right for Britain to take this lead, not least


because we meet our contribution on aid, but we are entitled to raise


this issue. As for the electoral commission, the whole point is it is


independent and when it comes to operation on decisions by a police


force they are independent as well. That is the hallmark of a


non-corrupt country. I know my right honourable friend will want to join


with me in congratulating Katie born who was re-elected as the Police and


Crime Commissioner, topping the poll in Crawley, significantly for her


work in helping victims. In that respect, will the Prime Minister


introduce a British bill of rights as soon as possible? I am happy to


make that commitment and let me join him in congratulating all the


candidates who were successful. In a minute. What we saw in the Police


and Crime Commissioner elections was a very large increase in turnout,


sometimes as much as 25% point increase in turnout. This new role


in our country is bedding in well. I am happy to congratulate Carwyn


Jones, Arlene Foster, who will be First Minister of Northern Ireland.


I spoke to her and the Deputy First Minister yesterday. I also


congratulate Sadiq Khan who won a victory in London and we look


forward to working with him for the benefit of Londoners. When Hall was


left out of the government's plans for rail electrification for the


North, whole business got for rail electrification for the


and produce a privately financed scheme to do the work for the


and produce a privately financed of Culture, 2017. It has been with


the Department for Transport for two years. Does the Prime Minister think


their attitude shows years. Does the Prime Minister think


indifference to the scheme years. Does the Prime Minister think


been put forward with private money? The honourable lady is being unfair


on the department, not least because passengers will benefit from 500


brand-new carriages and the passengers will benefit from 500


of outdated trains. ?1.4 million of investment is going into the station


to be delivered before it becomes the UK City of Culture. The


Department for Transport is the UK City of Culture. The


considering the case to complete electrification


considering the case to complete how. We make these investments


because we are investing in our infrastructure and have a strong


economy. I recently visited Silent Night, will the Prime Minister join


me in congratulating them on the success of this scheme which has


allowed them to award all of their 1000 employees with a ?250 thank you


bonus? I am happy to join my honourable friend in congratulating


them. I remember visiting them in 2014. They employed 800 people.


They're now employ 1100 people and that is a good example of a business


expanding under this government. They are big backers of


apprenticeships and our target is 3 million apprenticeships under this


Parliament. Already in 2016, at least 46 women have been murdered in


the UK. This number would be much higher if not for specialist


refuges. I am standing to bake the Prime Minister to exempt refuge


accommodation from the changes to housing benefit. This will certainly


close services. I do not want to hear a stock answer about the 40


million over the next few years. He knows that that will not stop


refuges setting. Will he choose to save lives? Please. The honourable


lady raises an important point and that is why we delayed the


introduction of this change so we could look at all of the possible


consequences and make sure we get it right so that we can help vulnerable


people. HIV infection rates in the UK are on the rise. My right


honourable friend will be aware that NHS England have refused to fund


pre-exposure prophylactic treatment. Will my right honourable friend meet


with me and leading aids charities so that we can review this


unacceptable decision? My understanding is that NHS England


are considering their commissioning responsibility. I want them to reach


a decision on this quickly this month if possible. There is a rising


rate of infection that these treatments can help and make a


difference too. We are planning trial sites. They are already under


way and we are investing ?2 million to support this. I will make sure he


gets the meetings he needs to make progress with this. In my first year


as an MP every person in my constituency advice surgery has been


an anxious council tenant, usually mother, father and two children


living in a one-bedroom flat and they are often in tears. They cannot


afford to rent in the private market and they cannot afford to buy their


council flat and they cannot afford a starter home. With the Prime


Minister explain that I can read to them from Hansard White in his view


the Housing Bill will not make their intolerable situation worse I see


Mark what I would say is there are a series of things that will help


them. First of all, making sure the right to buy is therefore a housing


association tenants as well as council tenants with the full


discount makes a difference. Because you have got help to buy, which


means people need a smaller amount of equity to buy their house, that


helps as well. Starter homes will make a difference because they will


be more affordable. Added to that, shared accommodation homes means


that where you previously needed a deposit of ?30,000, you may be able


to buy a house for just a few thousand pounds deposit. All of


those things make a difference and for those in estate that need


regeneration we are backing the regeneration that never happened


under a Labour government. I am proud this government has delivered


a record low unemployment levels in my constituency of 6%. This


government delivered the Cardiff city deal, and investment into


infrastructure. Does the Prime Minister share my eagerness to see


electrification of the city and Valley lines delivered in Wales? My


honourable friend is right to raise these issues because the money is


there and now, frankly, with a new Welsh government in place we need


the action, particularly on the M4. We have given the Welsh government


500 million increased borrowing powers, the delay in upgrading the


motorway is damaging business in South Wales and it is high time the


Welsh government got on with it. Mr Speaker, a report claims it is money


rather than religious fervour that attracts recruitment to Isis, while


the Syrian army pays less money and Isis can pay more money due to its


funding and sophistication. Does the Prime Minister need much more needs


to be done to offer alternative economic avenues for Syrians and to


undermine the brains behind Isis? I agree with what he says about


development and aid and that is why we have a serious aid budget. Right


now in Syria it is difficult to get aid and benefit through. If we truly


see this as them recruiting people because they are paying them, we


would miss the point. The cancer of Islamist extremist violence is


damaging our world and our country and not just in Syria and we have to


understand the nature of that extremism if we are to defeat it. A


business park in my constituency will create 300,000 new jobs. Will


the Prime Minister join me in congratulating its first new talent,


Fat Face? I think the claimant count in his constituency has fallen by a


staggering 52% since 2010, and we need to keep on with this by making


sure we are expanding the training and the apprentice that make sure


that young people get the jobs. The Prime Minister said that the UK was


becoming a surveillance state and he promised to sweep the whole edifice


away. That he has made a U-turn and his investigative Powers Bill


proposes to retain a record of everybody in the UK. Why is he


championing ineffective mass surveillance in government? I


disagree with the honourable gentleman and I hope he will follow


and listen to the debates that take place on this vital bill. The fact


is if you want to make sure that we can keep our country safe, just as


we have been able to see the Communications data when two people


talk to each other on a mobile phone or a fixed phone, so if that


conversation is taking place on an Internet site, is he happy for plots


to be hatched, terrorism to be planned,


murderers to be arranged, because people are using an Internet site


rather than a telephone? My answer is no. We have to modernise our


capabilities to keep our country safe and that is what this bill is


about. My right honourable friend said in 2015 that access to the


Internet should not be a luxury, but right. The press release said that


every home and business would have access to fast broadband by the hand


this Parliament. With my right honourable friend say today that


this Parliament. With my right this commitment will be honoured? My


right honourable friend will have to wait for the Queen's speech when we


set out how we are going to make this access available to our


citizens. Will the Prime Minister this access available to our


work with the Scottish Government to blood delivery of funding for the


Tay area, Dundee and the surrounding area? I


Tay area, Dundee and the surrounding commitment. I think city deals are


working. They are working in Scotland


working. They are working in for the Aberdeen city deal. City


working. They are working in deals can only work if we are all


part of one happy United Kingdom. Respected journalist Laura


Kuenssberg has been subjected to an online hate campaign which appears


to be a sexist witchhunt to silence her. Increasingly this is a tool


used against people in public life by those who take an opposing view.


Will my right honourable friend condemned this kind of harassment


and will he work with condemned this kind of harassment


social media platforms to reserve the right to speak freely without


intimidation or hate? We must be able to speak freely and we must


have a robust and lively democracy, but some of the things people say on


twitter, knowing that they are in some way anonymous, are frankly


appalling and people should be ashamed of the sort of sexist


bullying that often takes place. Last week London elected the new


Mayor... With an overwhelming mandate to tackle London's housing


crisis, a crisis many of us fear the Housing Bill will make worse. Last


April the Prime Minister launched a manifesto promising to replace


council houses with affordable homes in the same area. Why is he


proposing an amendment to the Housing Bill this afternoon which


implements last year's manifesto commitments? Let me again


congratulate Sadiq Khan for his victory and we look forward to


working with him on issues that matter to Londoners. I would put the


question back to the honourable lady. Our Housing Bill means that


every high-value properties sold will mean two new affordable homes


in London. Why is it the Labour Party and the other plays are


opposing what will mean more houses, more affordable housing and more


home ownership? They talk a good game, but at the end of the day they


are the enemies of aspiration. During military operations in


Afghanistan, British forces were reliant on local interpreters who


constantly put themselvess in harm's way. I saw with my own eyes how


brave these interpreters work. Does he agree it is a stain on our


honoured that we have abandoned a large number of them to be


threatened by the Taliban. Some have been murdered and others have had to


flee in fear of their lives. We owe them a huge debt of gratitude and


honour and we must provide safety and sanctuary for them here. We


debated and discussed around the National Security Council table in


the Coalition Government and announced in the House of commons a


scheme to make sure that those people who had helped our forces in


terms of translation and other services were given the opportunity


of coming here. We set up one scheme to encourage that and another


generous scheme to try and encourage those who wanted to stay, or who had


not been translated for a long period, to stay in Afghanistan and


help rebuild that country. It is important to have both schemes in


place, rather than to say that everyone can come to the UK. Let's


back Afghans to rebuild their own country. The Prime Minister has


confirmed to me that should we leave the EU, then the European funding


for the very poorest parts of Wales will cease. Will he confirm that in


such a case the UK Government would make up such a difference? The point


I would make to the honourable gentleman, as I would to anyone


asking what would happen if we were to leave, is I do not think we could


give a guarantee. I want to go on making sure that poor regions and


part of our country are properly supported. If, as I think it is the


case, that we would find our economy hit by leaving and our tax receipts,


that will impact the amount of funding we can put into agriculture,


research and poor are part of our country. The right option is boat to


remain in. Can I support the Prime Minister in his comments about


Nigeria and Afghanistan? I want to ask him if he will stop pouring


hundreds of millions of pounds of taxpayers' money into those


countries until they have cleaned up their act. Can he tell us where he


has the European Union in his leak of corruption? I thank my honourable


friend for his help and support and his tips on diplomacy as well. They


are useful. Countries like Nigeria and Afghanistan, their leaders are


battling hard against very corrupt systems and countries. In both cases


they have made remarkable steps forward and I am keen to welcome


them to the anti-corruption conference in London. But I do not


think it would be right to withdraw the aid that we give because the


problems in those countries come back and haunt us here, whether it


is problems of migration or terrorism and all the rest of it. We


are a country involved in a dangerous, global world and I our


aid budget, 0.7%, alongside our defence budget, 2%, a way of keeping


us safe in a dangerous world as well as fulfilling our moral


responsibilities. The noise makes it necessary to outdo the Barclays


Premier League matches in terms of injury time. It is a pleasure to


recall Jill Furniss. 22 years ago we saw in the country's biggest


sporting disaster. It is true we will not have the truth. Will the


Prime Minister initiate an enquiry? The Home Secretary has met with that


group and is considering the point is that they have put forward and


they will come to their conclusions in the right time. Business leaders


in Cornwall and up and down the country are awaiting news on airport


expansion in the South East. Following this morning's


announcement by Heathrow airport that they are accepting all the


recommendations, and can the Prime Minister update the House and does


he agree that the third runway at Heathrow offers the best for


prosperity for our country? With my many unforced errors in the last 24


hours, can I apologise to the honourable lady because I should


have welcomed her to the House of commons and congratulated her on her


by-election victory. She has already lost no time in speaking up for her


constituents in a very powerful way. As we announced earlier this year,


there are issues of air quality that need to be resolved. We are on our


way to working out how to resolve them and when we do we welcome back


to the House and announce happens next. My constituent's mother was


killed in 1981 and at the time it was covered up as a suicide pact.


But 18 years later it was discovered she was murdered by her father and


his mistress. No one can imagine that the pain and suffering that her


and her family have had to endure. But they now have had to relive this


pain because ITV are dramatising their whole ordeal completely


against their wishes, using not only their real names, but also her own.


I have raised this with ITV and Ofcom and no rules have been broken,


but does the Prime Minister not agree that victims' voices should


have a far greater role? Will he meet with me and my constituent to


discuss what more could have been done in this situation and how we


can strengthen the regulation in future to protect victims? I was not


aware of the case the honourable lady rightly raises. I remember my


time working in the TV industry when there are times when these decisions


are made that can cause a huge amount of hurt and upset to


families. I will discuss this case to the culture Secretary and bring


it to his attention and see if there is anything else that can be done.


it to his attention and see if there Yesterday the local lord prior... I


am happy to look at this issue closely. It is necessary to


differentiate between smoking and e-cigarette because they have very


different health effects. That is what is being achieved, but I will


look carefully into this. Mr Tim Farron. Order! Order! However


irritating the honourable gentleman... May be to government


backbenchers, he has a right to be heard and he will be heard. Mr Tim


Farron. I am grateful to you Mr Speaker. I heard the Prime Minister


on two occasions this afternoon congratulate the new Mayor of


London, Sadiq Khan, and I would like to repeat that myself. He did not


apologise for the disgraceful racist campaign the Party chose to run in


that campaign. Will he apologise for deliberately dividing communities in


order to win cheap votes? It is a great way to end the session,


getting a lesson in clean campaigning from the Liberal


Democrats! That was probably the longest PMQs,


apart from last week, which was also long. On current trends, PMQs will


go one to 1pm. And by my cultivation, till mid October. We


may need an extension on the Daily Politics to take us through to


1:30pm. For the second week in a row, it was a strange PMQs. Last


week was strange because the Prime Minister kept asking questions of


the Leader of the Opposition. This week, it was strange because, much


as we pride ourselves on new -- knowing the details of political


discourse and issues, because we are anoraks to such thing, we frankly at


the beginning had no idea what Jeremy Corbyn was talking about. It


turns out, because we do our research, that it is a posted


workers directive, issued by the European Commission will stop a


posted worker is not a postal worker, that is different. A posted


worker is defined by European law as an employee who is sent by his or


her employer to carry out a service in another member state for a


temporary period. What the directive is trying to do is to say, if these


workers are posted from, say, to Poland -- from Poland to France by


their employer to do a particular job, they should be paid the same


money as they are the people they are working with in that particular


factory or whatever. The interesting thing, which is why it is not


entirely a matter for the British, is that the 11 EU member states have


shown a yellow card to this proposal. Estonia, Hungary,


Slovakia, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech parliament, Latvia, Lithuania


and Romania have all put a yellow card. They don't like this. They are


likely worried it would be nuts of these workers would not then be


posted to these jobs. I know you are sitting on the edge of your chair on


this. There are almost 2 million posted workers in the EU,


representing 0.7% of EU employment and almost 40 -- 50%, 44% to be


exact, are in the construction business. There you go. Ask me


anything you want to know about posted workers. I think you have


told us. What did have your say? The viewers agree with you - they


weren't quite up to scratch on what Martin from Stockport calls that


posting workers directive stop. -- workers directive. Why can't he ask


about things we understand and care about? Michael in Lincolnshire says,


he has to stop focusing on menu sure when asking questions and learn to


use sound bites. Until he does, David Cameron will run rings random


stop. -- run rings round him. A huge mandate the labour, says one viewer,


the greatest city on the planet and doesn't it deserve a mention?


Another viewer says, dancing round menu sure on the EU. Someone else


commented on the name of the Arctic survey ship. Lots of tweets


congratulating Angus Robertson for asking questions about Tory election


fraud. Well, it was an obscure issue to go


on, but it is not often that I can see I am a net receiver of


information on this issue, thanks to Mr Corbyn, because I now know more


about posted workers directive is than I did before. That is helpful


to me. In what way is it helpful to the Leader of the Opposition?


Perhaps because this issue has been important to some of the unions,


particularly the GMB, who had been a big whack of Jeremy Corbyn. If we


think of the role that unions have played in his leadership, they have


been campaigning for some time on this issue. The European countries


are in the process of making a decision about moving forward on it,


so it is a live issue or parts of the Labour Party and the unions.


Some people might remember one of the controversies in this area in


2009 was a big strike at an oil refinery where workers were brought


in directly from Italy, and they were being paid less than the people


who had been working there who were British. So, it is a niche issue,


but important to some strands of the Labour Party and I think that is why


he raised it. It is not really to do with free movement, it can only


happen because of free movement. It doesn't cover the vast majority of


workers crossing European boundaries in search of work. You have to be


posted by your employer to a facility that that employer needs to


provide labour to in another country. And you can see why the


unions want to make sure that there is not what is referred to as social


dumping, not a nice phrase, but you dump cheap labour into that area and


undercut. I have no idea, in Britain, how widespread this is. I


have to say, I am not sure either. We do know it is a matter of concern


to parts of the union movement, and it is the kind of thing that Jeremy


Corbyn cares about in the context of the EU referendum campaign. When we


have heard him talking about standing up for a more social Europe


that protects workers' rights and the strength we can get from being


inside the EU, the kind of campaign he will run in the next six weeks or


so, these are the kinds of issues that he may well be promoting in the


campaign. The problem might be, how does that translate to most ordinary


voters? I suspect that probably a good number of people were not


familiar with what he was talking about. And he has 11 parliaments


against it. If Kate Hoey were here, I'm sure she would say, if we left


the EU, we could stop them coming in. Job done. It was a strange PMQs,


not least because you had the Lib leader calling for an apology for


the new Labour Mayor of London. You had the Conservative leader


congratulating the new Labour leader of London, and the Labour leader


saying happy birthday to David Attenborough. It was quite a strange


session or run. We need a diagram. Hillary Benn, why did Jeremy Corbyn,


instead of congratulating David Attenborough on his birthday, not


congratulate Sadiq Attenborough on his birthday, not


more votes personally than any Labour politician in history and now


being the single biggest elected leader in Europe. Why did he not


congratulate him leader in Europe. Why did he not


like to apologise for what was said leader in Europe. Why did he not


campaign? Mr Corbyn has already congratulated city can on his


fantastic victory. I think the Prime Minister should have given Sadiq


Khan an apology. to by the Leader of the Opposition.


There are conservatives who have finally admitted to


There are conservatives who have reservations they have. They have


done themselves a huge amount of damage. That may well be true, but


you are just widening the open goal for Mr Corbyn to kick


you are just widening the open goal through. He should do so. Tim Farron


didn't win London, your party did. People know that this was a grave


error that has done the Conservative Party enormous damage with the


ethnic minority community in London. They are going to rue the campaign


they ran. That is not the question. I know you are good at


filibustering, because I can see you are embarrassed. Why did your leader


not stick it to the Prime Minister on this? Because he did so last


week, Andrew. At PMQs? But he hadn't won. He did, he raised the issue and


give him a hard time. John Hayes, I have a tough question for you. Is


Government policy for or against the posted workers directive? I am a


receiver of information and the net beneficiary from Mr Cobb and, as


argued. So you don't know? The prime ministers said we understand the


argument and approve of what the unions are saying, but I have come


to this as fresh as you have. I quite often criticise politicians


for not knowing the answer. In this case, I wouldn't dare. It would seem


quite sensible that you can stop companies, say, based in Eastern


Europe from sending over a tonne of workers to a facility in the UK,


which is that that we would care about, and paying them half of what


the British workers are getting there. That would seem only fair


that if you're going to do that, they have to meet British standards.


It is different from a sole plumber coming from Poland to work as a sole


trader. It would seem fair that you would make sure that any employer in


Poland or Latvia who does this would meet the standards here in the UK.


Yes, that would seem fair. Let me say this - my dad was a shop


steward, I am a member of the trade union. We make sure that we stand up


for workers rights, it is a core part of my politics. A really good


argument for staying in the European Union. They haven't got the director


through. The directive is already in place. But it has been yellow


carded. It was agreed by the legislative process of the European


Union. There have been a number of court judgments, and this proposal


has been made. The right to paid holidays comes because of the


working Time directive. We're running of time. You can blame the


speaker when you get back. I would not trust the Government with


workers' rights in Britain if we vote to leave. When I say we have


run out of time, we have. I want just to leave the next 15 minutes to


Laura, who is going to go through the details of the posted workers


directive. I think we can all consider ourselves net receivers of


information after today. I can't resist saying, or was the person who


said over the weekend who said that Labour had to stop missing own


goals? Sadiq Khan. I didn't realise I was echoing him! Laura, good to


see you. I will send you the link to the workers directive.


It was a heated debate, so don't do it down.


Now, it's the film the world has been waiting for.


Forget the new X-Men, forget Captain America,


today London's Leceister Square will play host to the world premiere


In this film, I want to spell out our choice, do we want to live under


a Europe-wide Government, a vast state machine which few of us


understand and by people we don't know with the powers to impose laws


we have debated and have little or no power to overturn? You cannot be


a self-governing democratic nation and a member of the EU. That is


impossible. We now seem to talk about going on holiday with a single


currency as if that were the highest aspiration of mankind, but surely


one of the Isner aspirations is to have the dignity of self-government.


-- one of the highest aspirations. And the man behind the moving,


director Martin Durkin, joins us now. Hello. Hello. The Premier is in


Leicester Square. Celebrities will be attending, and you've got some


massive names - Nigel for a rash, David Davies, Kate Hoey, a North Sea


fishermen. You haven't invited Andrew. I


thought he was coming. Will it be packed tonight? We have sold out,


I'm told. I must say, I'm staggered. Nevertheless... What will it tell us


that we don't know already? You asked me that last time. I'm so


repetitive. It is all about how highly we value our freedom, and I


think that people don't fully appreciate what the implications are


of handing over the rights to determine our own laws and shape our


own future. Last night I was thinking, why have I made this film?


It was a pain to make it. It is the BBC. It was the BB 's -- if the BBC


One the propaganda arm of the EU, I would not have had to go to the


bother. Thanks for joining the Daily Politics! What bit of our


coverage... Hold on, what bit of our coverage has been propaganda? You


are worried about losing your charter, so you have scalawags on.


You portray Eurosceptics as narrow-minded and cranks. In the


film, you realise what it is about, and it is class struggle. It is


ordinary taxpayers having a go at the tax concealing, publicly funded


establishment. I don't associate Nigel Lawson, because I did look at


the trailer, with the class struggle. It seems like a conspiracy


movie from the 1970s - the EU is the source of all our ills, and that


isn't the case. No, no. The BBC is. It is the political pass, of which


you are apart, that once to... It would be like going to remedial


camp. Good luck with the movie. Press that button, Hilary Benn, to


find out which year it was. It was 1962, who has won?


The one o'clock news is starting, part of our propaganda arm, is


starting on the BC one. Joe and I will be back with more political


propaganda tomorrow. And again on Friday and Sunday.


Drinking small amounts of alcohol isn't without risk.
