The candidates for the leadership of the UK Labour Party have both

:00:09.:00:12.

ruled out forming any deals with the SNP at Westminster.

:00:13.:00:16.

Jeremy Corbyn and Owen Smith were taking part

:00:17.:00:18.

Our political correspondent Nick Eardley was there.

:00:19.:00:31.

Tonight's debate was one of a number around the UK but the first in

:00:32.:00:38.

Scotland and the first chance to set their pitch to Scottish voters.

:00:39.:00:46.

We also need to take to task the SNP who are underfunding college places

:00:47.:00:51.

and there is a deficit in the Scottish Government's accounts. I

:00:52.:00:55.

have come to say that the Scottish air of the new Deal, the ?200

:00:56.:01:00.

billion that I would spend across the UK on infrastructure and skills,

:01:01.:01:04.

20 billion of that would go to the Scottish Government to spend as they

:01:05.:01:10.

see fit within Scotland. It comes after a torrid time for the Scottish

:01:11.:01:14.

all bar one Westminster seat that Ms all bar one Westminster seat that Ms

:01:15.:01:21.

-- one Westminster state to the SNP. Both candidates had a say as to what

:01:22.:01:27.

they thought I'd gone wrong. In the last year, with Jamie as the leader

:01:28.:01:33.

of the Labour Party, we have gone from second to third behind the

:01:34.:01:38.

Tories. Under his leadership, we have gone backwards in Scotland. I

:01:39.:01:42.

think Kezia Dugdale is doing a brilliant job, she is a fantastic

:01:43.:01:51.

role model. I have worked with her since she was a candidate and I

:01:52.:01:55.

campaigned with her in elections and on the European referendum and I

:01:56.:01:59.

will work with her again straight this election... The SNP are very

:02:00.:02:06.

good at pretending to adopt the close of the Labour Party in

:02:07.:02:10.

Scotland. The reality is very different on what they actually do.

:02:11.:02:15.

Both men also ruled out any electoral pacts with the SNP. The

:02:16.:02:18.

Both men also ruled out any most fiery exchanges of the night

:02:19.:02:22.

came about Europe and what should happen now. I'm not sure that Jeremy

:02:23.:02:33.

did vote in. Owen, I thought we had grown up and we were not going to

:02:34.:02:36.

use those kind of questions or remarks. Scottish Labour voters and

Labour voters across the UK will get to say which vision they prefer next

month. An investigation by BBC Scotland has

:02:44.:02:46.

found that exploitation of workers is commonplace in the heart

:02:47.:02:50.

of Govanhill in Glasgow. In the second of her special

:02:51.:02:52.

reports, our political correspondent, Lucy Adams,

:02:53.:02:54.

also found that exceptional levels of poverty in the area

:02:55.:02:56.

were being exacerbated In the south side of Glasgow,

:02:57.:02:58.

we find two women taking food from bins and filling an empty pram

:02:59.:03:02.

with bags of clothes The company which looks

after the banks says that these incidents are so commonplace

:03:05.:03:08.

they have had to make They actually dropped a child

:03:09.:03:10.

inside the clothing bank to pass the stuff out and when someone came

:03:11.:03:15.

to chase them away, the child was left there

:03:16.:03:18.

and the police had to rescue it. A study obtained by the BBC found

of 300 Roma people and Govanhill, -- that of 300 Roma people in

:03:24.:03:36.

Govanhill, most were working but almost a third

:03:37.:03:43.

earned less than the minimum wage. These people say low wages were one

reason why women steal Some do not have money

for food for baby. Too many ladies are not going

:03:49.:03:52.

working, only husband goes working. They need the money to buy

:03:53.:03:54.

everything for the child. Volunteers say the

:03:55.:03:57.

solution is education. If their English is not good enough,

:03:58.:03:59.

they don't know their rights, they're working for less

:04:00.:04:03.

than the minimum wage. The solution would be more English

:04:04.:04:06.

classes in the area, so if their English

is getting better and better, I am teaching English in Govanhill

:04:12.:04:13.

because we have people from 42 These English lessons in the Church

the minimum wage? The poverty here

:04:49.:05:00.

echoes Glasgow's past. What we saw was a community

:05:01.:05:04.

which reminded me of growing up in the 1960s

:05:05.:05:09.

in the East End of Glasgow. You had workless men

:05:10.:05:14.

standing on street corners. They by and large tend to have large

:05:15.:05:18.

families, so the men are standing out to get away

:05:19.:05:21.

from the wife and children. You have flats where there

:05:22.:05:25.

are infestations we have not seen in this country for many generations

:05:26.:05:29.

- bedbugs, cockroaches, Figures obtained by the BBC show

:05:30.:05:34.

in Govanhill in the past four years, there have been 1,500 instances

:05:35.:05:41.

of mites, bedbugs and fleas and almost 2,000 cases

:05:42.:05:46.

of cockroaches, although recent Quite often your clients have red

they will be transferred support agencies believe the

:06:06.:06:10.

problems could worsen. There is an increase in migrants

:06:11.:06:27.

after the referendum in May. We have definitely seen

:06:28.:06:30.

an influx of migrants. They see it perhaps is the last

:06:31.:06:32.

chance and they are coming here. It is new migrants which have made

Govanhill what it is. All of the things that people

:06:36.:06:39.

see as the bad things Being so busy means there

is always something going on. The low rents also bring

in artists and students. There are lots of things

:06:52.:06:56.

happening in Govanhill. There are lots of people doing

:06:57.:06:59.

things to address problems It is events like this world music

night which really reflect the diversity

:07:02.:07:16.

and vibrancy of the area. The group of young people I work

with just want to work. They want to express themselves,

:07:22.:07:33.

some want to be famous, they want to rap and perform,

:07:34.:07:37.

they just want to make They are not here to leech,

or to rob or harm anyone, This diverse community

:07:41.:07:46.

has its fair share of problems. But talk to people here,

:07:47.:07:55.

they tell you they Scotland's colleges have been

:07:56.:07:58.

through a massive shake-up, with several mergers and a cut

:07:59.:08:08.

in the number of part-time students. But according to the public spending

:08:09.:08:12.

watchdog, more work is needed to understand what impact

:08:13.:08:15.

the changes are having. Our education correspondent

:08:16.:08:18.

Jamie McIvor reports. Stephan is getting

:08:19.:08:23.

ready for college. He is about to begin a two-year HND

:08:24.:08:25.

course in mechanical engineering. After college I will go

:08:26.:08:30.

to university and get a job Colleges now focus

:08:31.:08:36.

on full-time courses More school-leavers and young adults

:08:37.:08:42.

are getting full-time places. It is the result of a deliberate

:08:43.:08:51.

policy move. But there is another

:08:52.:08:55.

side to the coin. Overall budgets were cut

:08:56.:08:57.

by nearly a fifth in real Jobs have gone and the number

:08:58.:08:59.

of part-time students is down dramatically,

:09:00.:09:04.

nearly half in eight years. One of the issues

:09:05.:09:09.

remains about funding. A number of colleges are facing

:09:10.:09:11.

significant financial The sector is one which does not

:09:12.:09:15.

have problems to sue. One big change is the

:09:16.:09:28.

merger of colleges. City of Glasgow College

:09:29.:09:42.

is hailed as a good example. Nationally, the public spending

:09:43.:09:44.

watchdog says it needs to be easier to show if reforms

:09:45.:09:47.

are getting results. It is not possible for

:09:48.:09:48.

the government to report on the costs and benefits

:09:49.:09:51.

of the reforms they It is not clear if they have been

:09:52.:09:53.

fully achieved or what the cost was. The shake-up has sometimes

:09:54.:09:57.

seen difficulties. This year saw a national pay strike,

:09:58.:09:59.

but colleges claim overall It is only right the government puts

:10:00.:10:03.

the funding in and wants to see good If that means we have to do

:10:04.:10:10.

more data collection, that is fine as long as it does not

:10:11.:10:13.

detract from the impact Some working in colleges have real

:10:14.:10:16.

worries about their futures. The former Education Secretary,

:10:17.:10:30.

Mike Russell, has been appointed to a new post as minister for Brexit

:10:31.:10:32.

in the Scottish Government. He'll lead discussions with the UK

if they're to progress. The Glasgow side will face

Barcelona, Manchester City and German side Borussia Monchengladbach

:10:56.:10:59.

in Group C. The first fixtures will take place

:11:00.:11:05.

on the 13th or 14th September. Now the weather outlook for tonight

:11:06.:11:10.

and tomorrow from Christopher. Good evening. Fairly cloudy, murky

:11:11.:11:23.

conditions for some today but the north coast of Sutherland looked

:11:24.:11:28.

like this. Our weather watchers captured it. Tonight, all eyes on

:11:29.:11:32.

foundry downpours pushing through the north of England. This band

:11:33.:11:36.

pushing through Northern Ireland and heading through the Hebrides over

:11:37.:11:40.

the next few hours and marching northwards. Most of the mainland

:11:41.:11:44.

reasonably dry. Some rain around the east coast and misty and murky but

:11:45.:11:49.

by tomorrow morning set fair for most of central, southern and

:11:50.:11:55.

eastern Scotland. Lovely spells of morning sunshine. With the winds

:11:56.:11:59.

backing more south-westerly, that should push the low cloud back

:12:00.:12:04.

towards the east coast, if not sure. Some showers in parts of Argyll, the

:12:05.:12:08.

Highlands and Islands, heavy for a time but heading northwards. In the

:12:09.:12:16.

daytime, the showers become lighter in nature. The heavy sell-through

:12:17.:12:20.

Orkney and Shetland. For most of the north-east, central belt, bright

:12:21.:12:26.

with some sunshine. In England and Wales, plenty of sunshine and

:12:27.:12:30.

temperatures in the south-east towards the mid-20s. Similar

:12:31.:12:36.

conditions in Northern Ireland to what we will see in the north and

:12:37.:12:41.

north-west of Scotland. Elsewhere, sunshine and temperatures in the

:12:42.:12:48.

20s. At the weekend, there's been a few headaches weather-wise, but we

:12:49.:12:51.

are more confident that the heavier rain should stay to the south of us.

:12:52.:12:58.

We are told it looks fairly dry, reasonably dry on Saturday. One or

:12:59.:13:01.

two microlight showers around but dry spells. Looking ahead towards

:13:02.:13:07.

the second half of the weekend, a cooler, fresher feel with winds from

:13:08.:13:13.

the north. That heavy rain pushing off towards Scandinavia. One or two

:13:14.:13:15.

showers around but it will be cooler.

:13:16.:13:17.

Our next update is during Breakfast at 6:25am tomorrow.

:13:18.:13:22.

But, from everyone here in Glasgow and around
