Welcome to our look at what the morning's newspapers will be

:00:21.:00:34.

bringing. Thank you for joining us. Time for a look at the front pages.

:00:35.:00:39.

GPs have been sent guidelines on how to deal with suspected cases of the

:00:40.:00:43.

Ebola virus following and outbreaks in West Africa `` following an

:00:44.:00:52.

outbreak. Allegations of child abuse linked to Westminster in the 1980s.

:00:53.:00:58.

The Telegraph has stories about naming and shaming GPs with poor

:00:59.:01:05.

referral rates. The Express says a heat wave is on the way. The

:01:06.:01:11.

Guardian says ministers are about to pass emergency laws to allow phone

:01:12.:01:20.

companies to track phone usage. New fears of a cover`up on the story of

:01:21.:01:24.

the allegations of child abuse linked to Westminster in the 1980s.

:01:25.:01:29.

The Independent has more on the child dossier, claiming an extra

:01:30.:01:35.

copy was passed on to the Director of Public Prosecutions at the time

:01:36.:01:38.

after it was compiled by the late MP Geoffrey Dickens. We will begin with

:01:39.:01:44.

the Times and their story on this child`abuse story, which is

:01:45.:01:49.

appearing in many different forms over the various pages. Home Office

:01:50.:01:55.

kept quiet on child sex cases. We must be careful with this story,

:01:56.:01:59.

James, but what is the main point of this article? There was a review

:02:00.:02:07.

last year and some of the details have come to light about what went

:02:08.:02:11.

on inside the Home Office. We heard over the weekend that 114 files had

:02:12.:02:16.

been lost or destroyed in relation to child`abuse and we have now seen

:02:17.:02:20.

that there were a number of allegations that were contained

:02:21.:02:26.

within Home Office files that have only just now been passed on to

:02:27.:02:29.

police. They could have been in the files for up to 35 years. They have

:02:30.:02:34.

been in there for at least 14 years. And it all comes on the day when

:02:35.:02:39.

Lord Tebbit makes some incendiary remarks about fears of an

:02:40.:02:43.

establishment cover`up. This is clearly a story that will run and

:02:44.:02:47.

run. Theresa May will be answering questions in the House of Commons

:02:48.:02:52.

tomorrow. After that, the most senior civil servants from the Home

:02:53.:02:57.

Office will be grilled by the Select Committee chaired by Keith Vaz. This

:02:58.:03:04.

story will dominate all week. We are now in a situation where we have a

:03:05.:03:09.

review of a review. Yes. It is complicated. The original review was

:03:10.:03:17.

by HMRC, published last week, reported somewhere else and we are

:03:18.:03:23.

now seeing familiar ideas going around in circles in the other

:03:24.:03:26.

papers as well, lots of facts being brought to the fore. And we will get

:03:27.:03:34.

more information when Theresa May speaks to MPs. The point is that

:03:35.:03:38.

HMRC did their review last year and now the QC will announce what

:03:39.:03:47.

happens next. I think this is the early stages of what we saw with

:03:48.:03:52.

phone hacking and the allegations about Jimmy Savile. Anger and

:03:53.:03:55.

concern will build a head of steam. 140 MPs have signed a petition

:03:56.:04:01.

calling for an overarching inquiry and we are approaching that point

:04:02.:04:06.

now, I think. Pay more or accept cuts. Patients will have to pay for

:04:07.:04:12.

the NHS, except higher taxes or seek treatment cutbacks. `` accept. The

:04:13.:04:22.

idea of introducing charges at point of use undermines the whole point of

:04:23.:04:30.

the NHS. James also that it does and others will say that it may not. Who

:04:31.:04:36.

would they be? Some conservatives would say that you cannot make

:04:37.:04:41.

everything free at point of use. That was the founding principle of

:04:42.:04:46.

the NHS. Everything free at point of use was the foundation of the NHS.

:04:47.:04:51.

If you introduce charges, it cannot be at the point of use. Ed Miliband

:04:52.:04:56.

will make the NHS a vital election issue. That is all he has to go on

:04:57.:05:03.

with the economy recovering. All he has to go on is a ?30 billion black

:05:04.:05:08.

hole in the NHS finances. That is all he has to go on? You were

:05:09.:05:12.

telling me how important health is to be leaders. It is very important.

:05:13.:05:18.

It will become a political issue going into the next election. One of

:05:19.:05:26.

the people behind this report abuse to advise the government says we

:05:27.:05:29.

keep hearing from ministers, that they will make these efficiency

:05:30.:05:32.

gains within the NHS and that this will fill this gap that is looming,

:05:33.:05:36.

but he makes the point that it would require a productivity gain more

:05:37.:05:41.

than that which was achieved during the whole of the Industrial

:05:42.:05:47.

Revolution to bridge that. Is it unrealistic to expect the NHS to

:05:48.:05:50.

keep doing what it has always done when there are more treatments that

:05:51.:05:56.

are more expensive. It is not about doing what it has always done.

:05:57.:06:02.

People are living longer and getting complicated long`term conditions

:06:03.:06:04.

like diabetes and things like that that required treatment. There was

:06:05.:06:09.

an interesting report that came out last week that said if you have one

:06:10.:06:14.

of those, you will cost the NHS ?1000 per year. If you have two of

:06:15.:06:19.

them, ?3000 per year. And an increasing number of people have

:06:20.:06:22.

these conditions, so part of the solution has to be getting people to

:06:23.:06:27.

lead healthier lives. Isn't it a bottomless pit that it will never be

:06:28.:06:32.

enough, no matter how much money you throw at it? This is trying to get

:06:33.:06:38.

to the bottom of how you keep paying. With more immigrants coming

:06:39.:06:42.

into the country, you cannot really have healthcare for everyone.

:06:43.:06:48.

Immigration is part of it, just like people getting older. As you are

:06:49.:06:52.

older, you are more likely to need more health careful top this is a

:06:53.:06:57.

major issue. They are trying to grapple with it. You might think it

:06:58.:07:01.

should last forever but it probably cannot. There it is. Declaring the

:07:02.:07:11.

end of the NHS. I'm not. Should we just accept the fact that we have to

:07:12.:07:15.

pay more tax to pay for it? I think so. Yes. Who will sell that to us on

:07:16.:07:25.

the next election? That will be difficult, yes. Maybe we should

:07:26.:07:37.

spend money less on something else. Like Trident. Business leaders and

:07:38.:07:43.

speeding up in favour of the union and against independence are finding

:07:44.:07:48.

life difficult. Isn't that an easy thing to threaten and something very

:07:49.:07:53.

difficult to follow through? How can you make life difficult for

:07:54.:07:58.

businesses? They have not said how they will make it difficult. The

:07:59.:08:03.

problem is that governments can withdraw support or not be as

:08:04.:08:14.

helpful with contracts. The concern here is that you can set aside the

:08:15.:08:18.

social media campaign that was against JK Rowling when she

:08:19.:08:22.

supported the yes campaign. This is about if companies having to have a

:08:23.:08:31.

political stance, that is not good. But many businesses are speaking out

:08:32.:08:35.

against staying in the union and speaking out in favour of

:08:36.:08:39.

independence. It's not like the whole of the business community in

:08:40.:08:44.

Scotland speaks with one voice. No, but companies feel much more free in

:08:45.:08:48.

Scotland to speak up for independence. And this place into a

:08:49.:08:52.

concern that many people have, which is that whatever the outcome of the

:08:53.:08:56.

referendum, there will be a lot of ill feeling for a long time to

:08:57.:09:03.

come. You talk to people out on the doorstep and the temperature is

:09:04.:09:08.

rising in Scotland. The opinion maybe shifting back towards the

:09:09.:09:13.

status quo but there is a real feeling north of the border and

:09:14.:09:17.

there are some really nasty emotions coming out. Alex Salmond accuses the

:09:18.:09:24.

PM of playing roulette with Scotland's future, opening up a new

:09:25.:09:31.

front here. He says that David Cameron is playing a game of

:09:32.:09:34.

European roulette with Scotland's future in the EU. The Tory

:09:35.:09:41.

referendum to put the UK on a fast track out of Europe, which is not

:09:42.:09:44.

how David Cameron will describe it, I'm sure, would also drive Scotland

:09:45.:09:49.

to the exit door unless voters backed independence. If Alex Salmond

:09:50.:09:54.

is confident of getting independence, it would be a concern

:09:55.:09:57.

because they will have to reapply anyway. It is a strange thing to

:09:58.:10:03.

say. It is struggling forward to the end of 2017 when there may be a

:10:04.:10:07.

referendum if the Conservatives win the election. Scotland may see

:10:08.:10:12.

itself as more European than parts of England have in the past. They

:10:13.:10:16.

have a connection with France going back centuries. This is an

:10:17.:10:21.

interesting, new take on a familiar debate. David Cameron and a fast

:10:22.:10:30.

track out of Europe. He says he will campaign on a reformed Europe.

:10:31.:10:35.

summit when the Prime Minister lost summit when the Prime Minister lost

:10:36.:10:39.

triumphantly, I came away from the first time genuinely convinced that

:10:40.:10:43.

if there is a Tory charity and the referendum, there is a good chance

:10:44.:10:47.

that the UK will leave. I don't think he knows the forces he is

:10:48.:10:50.

playing with and I do not think that he can control them. But I want to

:10:51.:10:54.

know who this is aimed at because we all know that the referendum will be

:10:55.:11:00.

decided in the Glasgow tenements and I'm not sure many of them read the

:11:01.:11:08.

Independent. That does not mean that they should not cover it, surely.

:11:09.:11:16.

Polls say that support for independence rises 10% when the

:11:17.:11:23.

question of leaving the EU is added. But that won't be on the valid

:11:24.:11:28.

paper. GPs in this country are being told `` ballot paper. GPs in this

:11:29.:11:33.

country are being told to look out for the symptoms of the killer Ebola

:11:34.:11:43.

virus. There will be a number of people coming from West Africa to

:11:44.:11:47.

Glasgow for the Commonwealth Games but I'm not sure how concerned we

:11:48.:11:54.

should be. You have to have been to the affected areas and they are

:11:55.:11:59.

throwing in a Commonwealth Games Hawks, which is a good way to spread

:12:00.:12:08.

disease in writing, in actual fact. In dollars cause death through

:12:09.:12:13.

multiple organ failure and internal bleeding and there is still no cure

:12:14.:12:22.

or vaccine. I don't know if I want to take the risk. Because there is

:12:23.:12:31.

an incubation of up to 21 days, there is a slight risk that people

:12:32.:12:34.

could develop it when they arrive here, but cases might turn up in the

:12:35.:12:40.

UK, but the risk is very low. All is well. The Express. US film bosses

:12:41.:12:48.

are fighting for space in our studios. We are overwhelmed with

:12:49.:12:51.

film companies wanting to come and make films in the UK, which is

:12:52.:12:57.

marvellous news, a big boost to the industry. We have fantastic

:12:58.:13:00.

facilities, but I'm not sure why they are coming here rather than

:13:01.:13:05.

staying at home. I'm concerned this may be the beginning of the end

:13:06.:13:08.

because Harrison Ford had an unfortunate incident with a four and

:13:09.:13:13.

I'm not sure that will encourage people to come here `` unfortunate

:13:14.:13:22.

incident with a door. The journalist does say at the end that it is all

:13:23.:13:26.

because of UK film tax relief brought in by Gordon Brown in 2007

:13:27.:13:31.

and, no doubt, made better by George Osborne. It does not say that last

:13:32.:13:37.

part. You might want to add in that last part. Some extraordinary skills

:13:38.:13:43.

we have in this country. The Express. 86 Fahrenheit. A heatwave

:13:44.:13:53.

on the way. My favourite part is this will not happen until the end

:13:54.:13:58.

of the week. That is all right. I have a picnic on Saturday. They say

:13:59.:14:04.

that the topsy`turvy conditions have sparked warnings of localised

:14:05.:14:08.

flooding in the north`east. They are covering all of their bases. They

:14:09.:14:14.

have not mentioned locusts or snowfall or cats falling from the

:14:15.:14:22.

sky. The issue is that if they look too far ahead, they will not be that

:14:23.:14:26.

accurate. We know that forecasts beyond five days... Never wrong for

:14:27.:14:36.

long. I would like it to be true because that is a more cheerful

:14:37.:14:40.

version of events. Thank you for joining us this evening. They don't

:14:41.:14:45.

get on, really. Thank you. Stay with us on BBC News because at midnight,

:14:46.:14:52.

we will have more on those allegations over the cover of

:14:53.:14:56.

relating to missing abuse files in the 1980s. Coming up next, it is

:14:57.:15:00.

time for World Cup Sportsday.
