I'm Victoria Derbyshire, welcome to the programme.


There should be a crackdown on the cash-in-hand economy


according to the author of a Government-backed


He also wants to see far more rights for people in low


There are too many people treated at work like they are cogs in a


machine, rather than human beings, and there are too many people who do


not see a route from their current job to progress and do better and


earn more. Do you accept cash in


hand and pay tax on it? One of the richest women


in the world, Melinda Gates, joins us to explain why millions


more women in the poorest parts of the world need better


access to contraception. When you travel the world, you meet


so many women who will tell you that if they can space the births of


their children, they can feed and educate them, and that is what they


want to do. You can hear that full


interview after 10 o'clock. And for the first time


in more than 30 years, Great Britain will be represented


in the ladies Wimbledon Johanna Konta says she's just


focusing on winning the match. She is delighted she has got this


far. Cash jobs like window cleaning


and decorating are said to be worth up to ?6 billion a year,


so we want to hear from you this morning if you get paid in cash


of if you've paid for jobs in cash Do get in touch on all the stories


we're talking about this morning - And if you text, you will be charged


at the standard network rate. Ending cash-in-hand jobs


and changing the rules on the gig economy, where workers get paid


per task, are two of the recommendations in a major


report into the way we work. The Matthew Taylor review also says


there are too many people who are being treated like cogs


in a machine, rather Our economics correspondent,


Andy Verity, reports. In the last ten years,


the economy's generated record numbers of jobs and the lowest


unemployment rate in nearly But according to the man who led


a government-commissioned review, more jobs hasn't always


meant more good jobs. In my view, there's too much work,


particularly at the bottom end of the labour market,


that isn't of a high enough quality and there's too many people not


having their rights fully respected and there are too many people


treated at work like cogs in a machine rather than being human


beings and there are too many people who don't see a route


from their current job to progress The review will recommend that


if someone is controlled and supervised, then they're


classified as a worker, or dependent contractor,


rather than self-employed. Those workers may be entitled


to benefits like holiday pay and employers may have to pay


national insurance at 13.8%. That's broadly in line


with a landmark court ruling in a case brought by this former


Uber driver, Yaseen Aslam. I don't think it helps me


as a worker for what I've been fighting for in tribunal,


and that's what's concerning because the workers have not been


involved in the process The review also makes a bigger point


that self-employed work, from plumbers to painters, yields


far less tax for the Treasury, especially if the work


is cash in hand. For consumers, though,


the recommendations are likely to mean inexpensive services


will no longer be as cheap. Our political guru, Norman Smith,


is in Westminster this morning. This report could affect so many


people, but I wonder how much change it will really bring about? The mind


behind it thinks it will be the biggest step change in employment


rules in a generation. He certainly thinks it will be a very big deal


and what it is trying to do is address the grey area that gig


workers inhabit because they are not quite self-employed, they do not


have complete control over their working lives, often beholden to


these companies. At the same time, they are not really employees


either, not absolutely locked into companies like Uber. They are in a


twilight world. What Matthew Taylor is suggesting there ought to be a


new category of worker called independent contractor which would


enjoy some but not all the rights of employees. They would get holiday


pay, sickness benefits, potentially the minimum wage too. Two things


strike me. Will it happen? That seems to me a little bit vague


because although some people in government are saying, this is a


good report, we like it, there is no firm commitment to implement it, to


actually make it happen. When you look at the reaction of unions and


business, they are not terribly enthusiastic either. The real danger


is whether the report will end up like so many reports, there is a big


hoo-ha at the time but then it just gets pushed back down the agenda and


ends up not being implemented. She is, Norman. Thank you very much.


Joanna is in the BBC Newsroom with a summary


President Trump's eldest son is facing further allegations


about a meeting he held with a Russian lawyer


The New York Times says Donald Trump Junior was informed


in advance by email that the information offered


by the woman was part of a Russian government effort

Rescue teams searching for a missing 12-year-old boy have found a body in

they had found a body in the water. An American military aircraft has

of Jackson, the state capital. Officials say all 16 victims


were on the Marine Corps aircraft A man has been charged over an acid


attack on a woman and her cousin John Tomlin, who's 24,

declared victory in the battle to retake Mosul from so-called


Islamic State, hopes and worries about what happens next


are already forming. Members of a 72-nation coalition


are meeting in Washington later to work out how a stable future can


be secured and the US top general in Iraq has warned of the dangers


of allowing a new version So-called Islamic State appears


to be on the back foot. TRANSLATION: Our victory today


is a victory against darkness, against brutality,


and against terrorism. In Syria, US-backed forces


are closing in on Raqqa. But this is not


the end of the battle. Meetings are planned


in Washington this week to stop victories turning


to defeat and chaos. Even if IS do lose


cities, it doesn't mean The group could go underground,


which could create a One of the first questions


diplomats will want to know is, what will be done


to rebuild after IS? There is worry that


if power-sharing is handled badly, more people might


become IS converts. There is also concern that


as IS pulls out, Iran will be Iraq's government will need to take


action, according to the coalition's If we are to keep the next


Isis, Isis 2.0, from emerging, the Iraqi


government is going to have to do something pretty


significantly different. They are going to have to reach out,


reconcile with the Sunni population. Much of Mosul in ruins with no


water or electricity. Nearly 1 million of


its people have fled. As aid agencies call


out for money, the memories of Iraq in 2003 will be ringing


in many people's ears, but who will be paying for the peace


and what will be the price if no one A conference begins in London later


which aims to improve access to contraception for large numbers


of women in the world's It's thought that more


than 200 million women worldwide who want access to family planning


services still don't have it. We'll hear from the philanthropist


Melinda Gates and the Development Secretary, Priti Patel,


just after ten o'clock. Two new studies have found


that people who drink Scientists say they've uncovered


the clearest evidence yet that the beverage could be


beneficial to health, with those drinking more


than three cups a day seeing But others have urged caution,


as Sarah Smith reports. It's the news every coffee addict


will be delighted to hear. Their daily, or better still thrice


daily, brew might be a reason Previous research has suggested


drinking coffee can reduce the risk of heart disease,


diabetes and some cancers. Now two studies, one


American and one European, have both come up with results


that seem to show coffee The study of more than 500,000


people from ten European countries found men who downed at least three


cups of coffee a day were 18% less likely to die from any cause


than non-coffee drinkers. Women drinking the same amount


benefited less but still experienced What the study doesn't show


is what could be causing It's thought it could be


the antioxidants The results came out the same


for people who drank The figures don't prove that


drinking coffee will make you live longer, there's no cause


and effect shown, just a study of the life spans


of an awful lot of coffee drinkers. Plans to almost double


the number of Welsh speakers The Welsh Government wants


1 million people to be There will be more teaching


at an earlier age, and more Welsh-speaking teachers in primary


and secondary schools, as our Wales At Ysgol Glan Morfa, children's


lessons are taught through Welsh. Members of the Welsh Government came


here to spread the word about their new goal


for the language, supported We've laid down the gauntlet,


if you like, it's a big task, If we really want to do it


and we believe we can do it, then Expanding Welsh medium education


is at the heart of the strategy. It includes creating 150 Welsh


language nursery groups over the next decade and increasing


the number of Welsh speaking primary But it's recognised that there must


be opportunities to learn and use There's also a recognition


that they need support from parents. Some parents will say, you know,


if my kids go to a Welsh medium school, can I help them


with their homework? Will all the correspondence be


in Welsh from the school? So of course we want


to take parents with us. The Welsh language is


celebrated every year at the National Eisteddfod,


a cultural festival which welcomes The Welsh Government wants more


people to be able to communicate in Welsh, but the public's appetite


for change remains to be seen. Now take a look at this dashcam


footage of a driver who seems It's been released


by police in Norfolk. I wonder if he's going


to go through a red. He shouldn't even be driving


the rate that he has been driving. He's watching the


EXPLETIVE on his phone! He's watching the


football on his phone. Norfolk Police said


the driver concerned The force wants other people to send


in dashcam footage which shows That's a summary of


the latest BBC News. A warning letter? On the subject of


sextant which we will talk about in a moment, Becky says, if it is


children as young as five, it must be learnt behaviour. Parents need to


take responsibility. No child needs to see anything inappropriate for


their age. Shame on the parents. If you have a child who has sent or


received images, seminaked images, Snapchat images with tassles on your


private bits, we know what we are talking about, let us know how you


have handled it as a mum or dad. On the cash economy, why is paying cash


for jobs part of the report at all? The smell of a rat is strong. Steve


Young Twitter says, this report by the UK Government is nothing more


than a cash grab. Interesting. Cash in hand economy, suggestions today


from this report that will be cracked down upon because it means a


lot of tax goes unpaid. If you pay cash in hand, receive cash in hand,


let me know the reasons why. Somerdale says, I receive cash in


hand, the best way to work, cutting out the corrupt middle person. --


someone says. No time for the sport. Two British players


are through to the quarter-finals of the Wimbledon singles


for the first time in 44 years. So can Johanna Konta go one better


by reaching the last She takes on the number two seed


Simona Halep after a really tough three-set win over


Caroleen Garcia yesterday. Andy Murray isn't back


in action until tomorrow. But there'll be no third Wimbledon


title for Rafa Nadal. He was beaten in a near


five hour epic by Giles Striker Romelu Lukaku


is now a Manchester United player after officially


joining from Everton. He met up with his new


teammates for preseason And after a rest day, the Tour de


France starts again today Chris Froome holds the overall lead


but he'll be without team-mate Geraint Thomas who crashed out


on Sunday with a broken collarbone. It's where someone sends


naked or semi naked photo to someone else using a phone,


tablet or online. In the UK it's illegal to do it


if you are under 18 - yet the BBC has learned that more


than 4,000 children under the age of 17 have been investigated


for sexting since 2013. And nearly 500 of those children


were aged 12 or under. Our Newcastle BBC reporter has been


investigating. Tell us more? We found there were thousands of


under-17s that has been dealt with for sexting, including a number of


ten-year-olds and a few older teens that have ended up on the Sex


Offenders' Register for it. There are hundreds of primary school age


children. We put in Freedom of Information requests to all forces


in England and Wales. We found that Greater Manchester Police returned


the highest instances of children they dealt with for sexting. Norfolk


and Essex have provided us with quite high numbers. The Met police


weren't able to respond to our request, saying it would take too


long for a member of staff to go through all the records they had. We


got some context from some places such an an 11-year-old sending a


message via Snapchat to a 12-year-old or a messenger message


to an 11-year-old. You have been working on this story for months.


What is the most surprising thing you draw from it? I think it's that


it's not surprising - everybody I've spoken to when I've said sexting in


under-17s, they've rolled their eyes and said sort of, we know what you


are talking about. The most alarming thing, there is a five-year-old in


County Durham found to be sexting by police. They were using an iPad. A


five-year-old can use an iPad, you could give them an iPad for five


minutes to entertain themselves but in this case it's been there for a


bit longer. We learned the average age for sexting was 13-14-year-olds


soI visited a youth club in Sunderland to find out what they


knew about sexting. This is what they told me.


It's when someone asks you, like, sexual pictures of yourself, or


Is where you either like send like dirty


messages or, like, nude pictures of yourself.


Normally, like, your boobs, your bum.


And, like, your private areas which no one asks you to.


If it's like a girl it will be, like, your boots, or, like, your


If it's like a boy it will be, like, you're down belows.


I don't know if it's illegal but certainly


I think a lot of people do because that's what people


I think a few of my mates have done it.


I do know someone that had sent an inappropriate image and


basically there was just a lot of trouble in school.


Teachers had to get involved with things like that


that has happened and went on because it just got sent around


People at school were basically just, like, laughing about


it and saying like just like it's really like,


like, basically they called her a slag.


So it's just, like, really upsetting for her.


She didn't realise what consequences would actually come from it because


she didn't expect him to send it about.


She sent a picture to her boyfriend and they fell out and then


the pictures got around and she got badly bullied for it.


Sexting could lead to put in your name on the sex


It can go to the police and it can carry on and stop you from getting


It could like ruin your career because if you want


to be a teacher or something and if it goes, like,


or social media then people will remember


Let's talk to Kerry Smith who is from one of the world's


largest children's charities, Plan International UK.


And Natalie Smith who is the education director of ARC theatre.


Their shows tour primary and secondary schools and teach


pupils about the consequences of sexting.


Hello both of you. Thank you very much for coming on the programme.


Your reaction to the fact that so many under-17s have been


investigated by the police, including a five-year-old? I think


it's true that it's unsurprising that so many under-17s have been


investigated. The five-year-old is an extreme example. If you heard


your reporter, she was talking about 500 under the age of 12. It shows


that we really need to talk to our children at a very young age about


both sex and relationships education but also technology and what you do


about taking pictures and sharing those images. They're getting mixed


up and confused and we need to start the conversations early. There is a


real difference between a five-year-old potentially sending an


image of themselves naked presumably innocently and perhaps a 14-year-old


girlfriend sending it to her boyfriend or vice versa? But if a


child has the technology, there isn't a difference and young


children want to be like their peers, like the older teenagers so


although yes it's probably innocent, if it's got a come radio, video,


they're curious -- camera. They're curious about it. Something naughty


sets your adrenaline going so it's exciting, especially if you think


other people don't know or it might be something you have not done


before, it makes it exciting. There is a disconnect between it being


against the law and kids doing it. Send a pic in your bedroom, your


boyfriend or girlfriend receives it, they might send something back, why


would you think that is illegal, what do you say to children about


that when you take your show around? One thing that surprises me is that


people think their phone is their property, but it's the parent that


is liable because they're paying the bill. So we tell them very little is


private anyway especially when it comes to the Internet and anything


they share on their phone their parents could have access to it and


be able to see. That is enough toe make them think about what they're


doing but they haven't even twigged that yet. So thinking about this is


something they would want to... Anthony says a five-year-old having


access to a phone to take photos in the first place. As for


criminalising the act of sexting between children, I'm in two minds.


Potentially he could be in favour of that. The way the police approach


this at the moment is pretty sensible isn't it? Yes. It's a


criminal offence so it already is criminalised. He means taking it


further? Yes, I mean the police are being sensible. If it's not


malicious, the police are going, OK, a crime has been committed but we


are not going to take any action. Although some teenagers who've done


this "innocently "requests, yes they're breaking the law but they've


ended up on the Sex Offenders' Register. We have seen a change in


the way in which police are taking forward these cases because of the


prevalence of it and the rising number and I think that really


speaks to one critical issue which is the sex and relationships


education that we have in our schools, the guidance is being


reviewed in September this year to be introduced next year and we


really need to make sure that children are learning about consent,


what it means to get someone's agreement to do something with them


but also about technology, so sexting and pornography and there


was a survey done this year with parents and the British public.


Seven out of ten people said yes, we want our kids to know about sexting,


so people know that there is an issue, they want that knowledge


shared with children and we've really got to make sure that that is


what is happening in schools. Your charity did some work focussing on


sexual assaults in schools in this country. How did that come about and


is it relevant to the sexting debate? I do think it is. We did a


piece of research that showed that in four years, reports of sexual


offences doubled and we also did a Freedom of Information request from


the Mors, but what it shows to us because what we are hearing from the


young people we work with, especially girls, is that they're


being sexualised, girls are being pressured, sexting is a gendered


issue, more girls are being asked to share and there's double standards,


as we saw from the film. The girls are shamed, but not the boys who're


holding the phones, but just the girls being shamed. There is a an


issue about what is happening in the environments and the streets and how


do we educate our people and the communities around them. Parents


also need to be confident and understand what is happening with


their children and understand what their children are being taught in


schools and take that conversation home.


So let us talk about parents then because absolutely crucial in how


you bring your kids up and what technology you give them access to.


What is the advice to parents, Natalie? One question we ask


students we work with on our broadcast programme is hands up if


you think you know more about social media, mobile phone technology than


you parents and every hand went up. Even teachers that spend all their


days with these young people are sometimes shocked and horrified and


surprised at some of the answers that they're giving us. I think


technology's often used as a baby sitting tool, as a peace-keeper, but


I think in the ways that adults would use technology, children are


using it very similarly but also quiet differently, it gives


something different to a young person when they are so connected


amongst their friends. So what do we do? Do we make sure we have their


passwords for all their social media apps, do we restrict use of the


phone? I think we have to educate. Give me some practical tips then,


what does that mean? There is an app that parents with get where they can


monitor up to five phones. They can allow children access to the


Internet or not. They can allow children the ability to play games


or not, they can see what is happening on their social media so


they are connected. Parents have got to have an interest as well. A lot


of parents probably make assumptions about their child's online use that


is probably not very close to the truth. We hear especially from young


people in secondary schools that they have secret e-mail addresses so


they can sign up to them and get pornography accounts and parents


don't have a clue about that because they are not doing it themselves.


This is a the first generation that we have such a gap. When these


children become parents, they'll carry on with that technology and


the speed an the change. They share their passwords amongst each other


in a way parents don't, so one can carry on their streaks for them if


they get their phone taken off them - I'm not speaking from experience


here! What you have got to do is work in the school system, work as a


family to say what is appropriate behaviour, how do we talk about how


we act online and offline and parents actually, we need the kind


of information from schools, from providers about how do we talk about


sex and relationships and bring technology into that conversation


and we also need to create cultures in our families about asking your


child if it's OK to take a picture and share it.


Thank you both very much. Let me know your thoughts on this.


Get in touch. Still to come, Theresa May gives her first speech since the


general election. We'll look ahead to some of the things she's going to


say. And Jo can that plays in the quarter-finals of Wimbledon. Will


she make the semis and the final? More on that later. Time for the


latest news headlines with Joanna. An end to cash-in-hand jobs


and changing the rules on the minimum wage are just two


of the recommendations in a major review into the way we work.The


study - led by a former adviser to Tony Blair, Matthew Taylor -


recommends that people working in what's known as the "gig


economy", where workers get paid per task, should receive new legal


protections - and their employers should make national


insurance contributions. President Trump's eldest son


is facing further allegations about a meeting he held


with a Russian lawyer The New York Times says

just after ten o'clock. That's a summary of


the latest BBC News. Let's head to Wimbledon now


and talk to Sally Nugent. And we have yet another huge


match to look forward to, with Johanna Konta


in the quarterfinals. There are some impressive


statistics regarding British That is right. Sometimes sport


reporting can be all about the statistics and I try and keep them


out of it, but the statistics around this are brilliant. The first time


in 44 years we have had a British man and a British woman through to


the quarterfinals. We are used to it with Andy Murray, quite blase now.


He has made it through to the stage for the last ten years on the trot.


An incredible achievement. This time we can start to get a bit excited


about Jo Konta. She is playing brilliantly. She has always played


brilliantly. A few tweaks in her game she has been working on, her


serve, stance on the baseline, but what she has done which is fantastic


is she has conquered her nerves. She comes out very focused on court. In


interviews, she only talks about the match she has just played. She will


not look forward and think, am I going to make the semifinals? She


will never let herself think about that and she will need her wits


about her playing Simona Halep. She will need to keep calm and keep a


handle on the nerves. She has done it so well so far, she has a great


chance of top secret weapon, baking muffins every day. Every day? Only


one is left today. After her match, she bakes a batch for the coaching


team. White chocolate and raspberry, vanilla muffins, banana and


chocolate chip. She has had a request for peanut butter and


banana. I know too much about this! It is sad. She is baking and it


makes her feel, and the whole team love the cake. -- it makes her feel


calm. Are we done with Murray? He got through, did all right? I was a


bit blase. He plays tomorrow, he is moving brilliantly, better than we


thought. If you watch him in training, he is not. How he is


managing on court, I don't know. It must be adrenaline. I stayed up late


last night, it took 5 cents and almost five hours. Gilles Muller


knocked out Rafa Nadal. It was epic. I was shouting at the telly. Rafa


Nadal has played brilliantly, playing all of his shots, and yet he


was not winning the points. A mammoth match in the end. 15-13. It


was incredible to watch and you have to say, Gilles Muller played


fantastically. You might be able to hear a strange noise on centre


court. I can exclusively reveal that is the roof coming across. A little


bit colder today. Raid in the air. No plans to have the roof on when


they start but they tend to move the roof back and forward at certain


points in the fortnight. -- there is rain in the air. Live sporting


action at 9:30am from Wimbledon, courtesy of Sally Nugent! Thank you


very much. Sally every morning from Wimbledon live. Points from you


about the cash in hand economy, the review from Matthew Taylor, the way


we work in Britain in 2017. We will talk more about it. E-mail from


Clare, so many beauty bars on my street that only accept cash. They


are full of stuff that do not really speak English, I do not know how


they get away with it. It is commonplace throughout London. Roger


tweets, let us be realistic, it is not about employee rights, this


report, it is about taxes. Simon e-mails, I am a decorator and I


spent 18 months working for a very large construction company and I was


forced to work ten hours per day, weekends, or lose my job. Holiday


pay was taken from me, paying me through an umbrella company and


charging me ?1 50 per week simply to administer my wages. The


construction industry is ruled by corporate greed at the expense of


workers and their rights. The Government will not stop practices


like this while umbrella companies exist. Cash in hand is sometimes the


only way to make a living wage. Andrew says, I don't mind them going


after cash in hand builders, but only if they go after cash in hand


corporations -- go after tax avoiding corporations first.


One year after taking office, an embattled Theresa May


will make her first major speech since losing her majority


It's expected the Prime Minster will reaffirm her commitment


of governing for all and not just the 'privileged few'.


She's also expected to ask for greater cooperation


from opposition parties on some of the biggest issues


as a "fightback" by Mrs May, but will that convince anxious


This morning we're talking to three who say their confidence


in the party and Theresa May as PM has shifted since the election.


Let's take a look back at her eventful year in charge.


Brexit means Brexit and we're going to make a success of it.


I have just been to Buckingham Palace where Her


Majesty the Queen has asked me to form a new government


If you're just managing, I want to address you directly.


The Article 50 process is now under way


and in accordance with the wishes of the British people, the United


Kingdom is leaving the European Union.


The only way to guarantee certainty and stability for the


years ahead is to hold this election and seek your support for the


Nothing has changed. Nothing has changed.


The Conservative Party has won the most


seats and probably the most votes, then it will be encumbant on us


to ensure that we have that period of stability and that is


Lauren Foskett is a working mum of two who describes herself


She says although Theresa May's leadership has been


a disappointment, but she's still supporting her,


and Adam Fahn is a facilities manager, he's in Brighton,


and he says he'd still rather have Mrs May as PM than Jeremy Corbyn.


Welcome. Lauren, explain why you are an unhappy Conservative photo. The


campaign that Theresa May round was appalling. I think she lacks


charisma. As the campaign went on, I felt that she was not somebody who


deserved my vote, but I thought the alternative was too horrible to


contemplate so I still voted Tory. Appalling? Like a robot, kept


repeating the strong and stable mantra. Is this for real? Will she


continue to do this? She seemed to do that. She alienate it a lot of


core voters. Lorraine, have you been disappointed in her leadership? Yes,


I have. She had so much promise. The first woman PM for this century. She


came in strong. I liked her approach to Brexit. But it has been


undermined. She named a calculated risk which flew in the face of the


electorate -- she made. They said they would not be manipulated and


the younger votes came out and we are where we are now and she is in a


worse position than she was and it will go down in history as an


absolute nightmare, really. We will come back in a moment to what you


want to see from her in the coming months, let us bring in Adam. Hello.


How would you describe Theresa May as Prime Minister and the leader of


the Conservative Party? She deserves our support and she needs to stay


because the alternative does not bear thinking about for me but I do


not then she connected with people enough and explained the policies


enough to be able to appeal to more people and it allowed Jeremy Corbyn


to attack and win more votes. Is it about her, the way she is, or the


Conservative manifesto in the run-up to the general election? I think the


last election was more about individual leaders. Whether that is


right or wrong, that is what we were seeing. It was both. The way she put


it across. But there were things in the manifesto, things discussed in


the lead up to the election, that did not need to be discussed and it


lost us votes. I can hear you two agreeing. We were talking about it


and why did they bring fox hunting into it? Why did they think -- why


do you think? Presumably they thought people would be rallied by


it but it a near naked people. A lot of the policies seem to be picking


on people they know will vote for them and then they alienate them.


They did not talk about Brexit which was the thing she went to the


country for, Brexit. Lorraine, what do you think about Theresa May's


approach to Brexit? Do you know what it is? Yes, I am clear. But I liked


her original approach because as a negotiator, you have to go in


highly, hard, set out your stall. Then you have got wiggle room to


negotiate down. To go in softly, softly, it is not the way. At the


end of the day, we have to get the consensus of 26, 27 other countries,


that in itself will be a steep mountain to climb. It is about


negotiation. The now she is going softer, she recognises the


electorate are some of them, they were not quite clued up as to


exactly what Brexit meant and what they were giving up. The fact she


wants to have some consensus across the party lines, I think that is a


move. In the run-up to the election, it was talked about, though more


bipartisan approach to discussing what will be best for the country.


Forget party lines. Forget that you are Labour, liberal, whatever. Get


the best heads together to do what is best for the country. It is not


about her running out of ideas. It is about Labour four example has the


same ideas in certain quarters as the Conservatives. It is about let


us get consensus early on because, God knows, she has not got a


majority in the House, time is of the essence. Yes, her approach, I


think it is right. Do you like what we are told is going to be in the


speech today where she will say the opposition parties to contribute,


not just criticise? Yes, I do. She has not got much choice now. I


really do not like how adversarial our politics is and it is so


combative and it is about winning points and we really need to come


together as a country. I do not think she has any choice and I think


it would be nice to see the opposition coming on board. Adam,


William Hague, for a Tory Party leader, I do not what you thought of


him, writing any newspaper today has this warning to Conservative MPs,


any MP thinking it might be better to jeopardise the Government than to


swallow a compromise from time to time, he means about Brexit, should


get clear now that such thinking is naive and dangerous in the extreme.


What do you think about that? We voted for Brexit as a country. There


are a number of opportunities that will come out of it. We have to


negotiate. But we must remember what people voted for. We must deliver


that. But we have to negotiate. What do you think specifically people


voted for? I think different people voted for different things. There


was certainly some... I think people made a decision ultimately to leave


the EU, but not to stop trading, not to stop visiting, not to stop people


coming here and all of the other things we do together. It was just


not to have a political union. Yes. Agreed. The immigration was... To


others, it was a big issue. But to the centre, it is about control. We


already have a lot of our own control, we are not part of the


Schengen zone. That was the problem. We were not given enough information


and it was not there to give. There were lies and scaremongering,


blatant lies, how do you make a decision based on that? Let us not


rerun history. What do you want? Cross-party consensus on Brexit,


what else do you want? Mrs May says it is not just about Brexit, her


premiership. What else do you want from her as a conservative voter? I


want to look at other policies like housing. I think... Building more.


Affordable housing. Also landlords, section 24, I would like to have


that looked into because that supports local authorities, issues


about landlords over what the last Conservative administration did, and


in terms of making sure that we have a large pool of housing, if the


local authorities cannot support that, we need to help the landlords,


instead of taxing them. Are you a landlord? Sky yes, I am. I thought


you might be! Just to be transparent! What about you, Lauren?


I would like to see cross-party consensus about some sort of plan


for social care. Both of my parents went into a care home and their


house has to be sold to pay for that. My father unfortunately died


but my brother is in a care home now and as it stands there will be


nothing left wants the care is paid for. Some of the policies they


touched on in the election sounded like they might be fair but there


was not enough information and I would quite like to see that


discussed but it needs to be a broad discussion. Adam, final thought?


Keep going, you're our Prime Minister, a strong and stable


economy which will deliver us good, health care education, all the


things that I think we all want no matter who we voted for, so get on


and do it and you've got my support. Thank you very much. Thank you.


Likewise. Thank you. Thank you to all of my guests. Good luck and


thank you very much for coming on the programme.


Coming up, Melinda Gates and Secretary of State


for International Development Priti Patel joins us to explain why


millions more women in the poorest parts of the world need better


is going to make today, she's going to talk


More of us are self-employed than ever before and more of us


are taking up jobs in the so-called gig economy - people get paid


for individual jobs rather than getting a weekly wage.


According to one definition, that's "labour market characterised


by the prevalence of short-term contracts or freelance work,


But a lot of workers find their jobs are insecure and exploitative.


The person tasked by the government to review the country's working


practices, Matthew Taylor, will report back


Now we can speak to Megan Brown, a courier, working for Deliveroo,


Paula Ventura, a government cleaner campaigning for the London Living


Wage, which is ?9.75 an hour, Joeli Brearley,


from Pregnant Then Screwed, who was sacked when pregnant


and Diane Nicol, employment lawyer who helped with Matthew Taylor's


working for Deliveroo means you are technically an independent


contractor delivering food from restaurants


for them to customers, not an employee of theirs.


Do you feel like an independent contractor?


No, I don't think I'm an independent contractor, I don't think I'm


running my own business. This is complete nonsense. OK. Because you


are seen as an independent contractor, up until now, then you


don't get sick pay, minimum wage et cetera. Indeed. The review is going


to suggest that you are a dependent contractor because you are


controlled and supervised by your company, does that sound about


right? Yes. This is based on the worker status which already stands


in law which would entitle us to national minimum wage, holiday pay,


things like that. Diane, how would you define this? The difficulty


before has been the lack of clarity between someone who is truly


self-employed and workers that Megan's just referred to. The Taylor


review recommendations want a distinction between the two and they


want to make it clear to employers and workers alike that that status


exists because, quite often, more unscrupulous engagers and employers


deny worker status. Obviously it requires the rights that they don't


want to follow through on like holiday pay. One of the


recommendations is that there is clarity in law. They need to issue


them with a statement of terms and conditions just as employers are


entitled to so that they and their employers and engagers are really


clear on their rights and responsibilities too. Thank you for


coming on the programme. You clean offices in the Loos of a Government


department from 5 am to 11 am, is that right? Until 9 am. So each


morning? Yes. Are you paid the minimum wage? Yes. But it's not


enough? It's not enough because, I see my colleagues, we work so hard,


they are short staffed, they don't book anybody else to help us and the


staff are feeling tired and then last week we had a meeting and then


the company said we are talking with the owners of the building, then


they just decide they're not going to pay for the living wage. As we


knew, many buildings in the same road, Whitehall, they pay the living


wage, the same company. That is why my colleagues and me were talking


about this. We are ask ourselves why they don't pay us. Just to be clear,


the company that employs you is not paying you the London living wage


which is ?9.75 an hour, so that is above the minimum wage, but does pay


the London living wage to other employees? No. No it doesn't or it


does? No, they don't pay to us in our building but the same company


pay for like number 22 Whitehall, they pay to FCO, the London living


wage. Jo understood. They don't pay it to us. Why do you think that is?


They said they want to consult the owners of the building and they


decide that they cannot pay the living wage to us. What do you think


about that? I think it's wrong because we work hard from 5am and


then the company win money because it's business, yes, and then I think


they should look after the staff more. If we are feeling good, we


work better and then they're going to get profit as well. They should


pay the London living wage because my husband and me, we are


campaigning for five years now, my husband left the company now I'm


just working there for 12 years. I think it's unfair because I should


trust in a company that I'm working for a long time there, but I've just


concluded that they don't do anything to help employees, they


don't care about us. Then I feel really bad. Yes. Yes.


Is this review going to touch on the living wage, do you know? We don't


comment specifically on the living wage but a we do comment on


enforcement of living a minimum wage and enhancing enforcement so that


people like yourself and your husband will be able to complain


about the fact that there is nonpayment and then the Government


through the HMRC will be able to enforce those wages. Also I think I


heard you earlier talking to someone about agency workers and umbrella


companies and that is all going to be reviewed and looked at as well in


relation to providing much more clarity and transparency around what


agency workers and those who're A typical and perhaps more capable of


exploitation are paid. Let me bring in Joeeli. Hi there --


Joeli. You were sacked when you told your boss you were pregnant which is


shocking. What protections are you looking for from this Government


review? We'd like to see greater parity between self-employed people,


people on zero hour contracts, women who run own businesses and women in


precarious work because, at the moment, workers have very little


rights in terms of maternity so they have no right to time off for


antenatal appointments, paid work. Self-employed women have no rights


to maternity leave, yet the benefits are dependent on them taking


maternity leave. People who're self-employed don't get 90% of pay


for the first six weeks which employees are entitled to and men


have no right to paternity leave if they're self-employed. So we'd


really lake to see greater parity between those two types of


employees. Is that something that is covered?


Without giving too much away, I think the nature of the


self-employed rights to maternity and paternity is something that is


part of a recommendation and there is also a recommendation around


consolidation of the guidance on the rights that pregnant workers and


those on maternity leave have. There is a recommendation that the


legislation is looked at slightly longer term. Obviously what we are


trying to achieve here is a balance of rights and responsibilities


between the rights of the worker and the responsibilities of the


employers and engagers, so there are recommendations on those points. OK.


That sounds potentially hopeful, Joeli but Diane can't give much away


because the report isn't officially released until an hour or so. Claire


says, I have worked as a self-employed contractor being paid


per job. I think the company that provide this is can sometimes


exploit workers, giving them set schedules to work. So there is no


flexibility, putting pressure on me to take extra jobs and shifts but


still not giving sick pay, holiday pay or a pension or any kind of


benefit. I'm not saying that every company acts this way, but the one I


worked for did. I felt harassed and blackmailed to keep my job with


them, taking shifts I did not want and yet I was "self-employed". That


is the mischief that we are trying to address in the report which is


the honest approach to status and it sounds to me - I wouldn't obviously


give legal advice - but it sounds to me that in the new world that's been


recommended that person would fall into the category of dependent


worker and be entitled to holiday pay and so on. OK. Regarding what


you have told us, we have got a statement from the Cabinet Office,


they say: We outsource our cleaning services to a private company which


is responsible for setting pay. The Government is committed to tackling


low pay and we ensure all of our contractors comply with statutory


and legal obligations. With regards to yourself and Deliveroo, this


statement: Riders receive ?9. 50 across the UK, above the national


average. We want to offer high paid flexible work but want to offer the


riders benefits, they value the flexibility that self-employment


provides. If a recent poll, 82% of riders said flexible work is what


attracted them to Deliveroo. The report is out in an hour. We'll see


what it says then. Thank you all very much.

Let's get the latest weather update with Benhaz Akhgar.


We can look forward to some rain today, welcome news for gardeners


and growers after a dry few days. We have seen some rain this morning.


Also some sunshine. This was the scene in Troon in Scotland. The


reason for the rain, this weather front is bringing it, it's coming


west-to-east the rest of today and into this evening. We have a trough


bringing a few showers through Scotland but they're mainly light in


nature. Sunshine in-between the showers, the best of the drier


weather for Northern Ireland. The rain continuing to push its way east


across England and Wales through the afternoon. Northern parts are the


best areas today if you are looking for drier conditions.


Northern Ireland enjoying the best of the brightness as well. Into


England and Wales, a lot of cloud. The rain turning patchy for a time


but intensifying again into late afternoon. Essentially it's feeling


much fresher with temperatures below for this time of year. A bit breezy


along the coasts. If you are going to Wimbledon, a few showers likely.


Temperatures up to 18 Celsius, feeling fresher than the past few


days. The rain will continue to fall across England and waeltion. Further


north, they'll tend to clear away. It will be a chilly night. South and


east will hang on to the rain and it will be a little blustery as well.


Temperatures should be more comfortable for sleeping tonight,


ranging between seven to 14. Tomorrow we'll see the rain across


the south-east first thing. That will clear through and high pressure


is in charge of the weather. We can look forward to plenty of sunshine


with light winds. It will feel pleasant, it's a lovely looking day


with temperatures tomorrow ranging between 14 to about 22. We are


feeling much more comfortable and less humid. By the time we head into


Thursday, we have the risk of a few showers across parts of the north


and west. Equally sunny spells to look forward to. The best of the


drier and brighter weather across the south-east. Temperatures ranging


between 14 to about 23. Remaining cloudy as we head towards the end of


the week. Hello, it's Tuesday, it's 10


o'clock, I'm Victoria Derbyshire. In major report into the way we work


in Britain calls for sweeping changes. Quite often, more


unscrupulous employers deny the status of workers because it


requires a tier of rights but they do not want to follow through on. We


will talk more about the report. Do you accept cash in hand or do


you always pay cash in hand? Window painting, the decorating? Do


you take cash? Do you pay tax on it? Melinda Gates joins us to explain


why millions more women need better When you travel the world, you meet


so many women that will tell you that if they can space the births of


their children, they can feed and educate them and that is what they


want to do. The foundation is promising ?300 million to help pay


for the contraception. You can hear that full interview

recommends that people working in what's known as the gig economy,


where workers get paid per task, should receive


new legal protections to stop There is a problem about the quality


of work amongst lower paid, lower skilled workers. What we have to do


is tackle exploitation so there are too many people who suffer one-sided


flexibility, their employers have lots of flexibility but it is not


how it feels to them, they are insecure, they do not feel they have


a voice at work. President Trump's eldest son

Millions of women in some of the poorest parts of the world


Now one of the richest women in the world, Melinda Gates,


The issue is being discussed at a big international


When a similar event was held five years ago, a pledge was made


for contraception to reach 120 million extra women by 2020.


Today, both the UK Government and the Gates Foundation have


committed extra cash to help that target be met - but is it enough?


Earlier I spoke to Melinda Gates and to Priti Patel, who is


the Secretary of State for International Development.


Thank you both very much for talking to us.


Let me ask you, first of all, Melinda Gates, why contraception is


so important to women and girls in the poorest countries?


Well, when you travel the world, you meet so


many women that will tell you that if they can space the births of


their children, they can feed and educate them and that's


So if we allow them to have these tools, if we offer


them, and we teach them about their bodies,


they will readily take them up because they


know it makes a huge difference for lifting themselves and their


So there is a direct link, you are saying,


between contraception and education for women?


And women will tell you all over the world, many of them


know about their bodies, they know about


contraceptives, but they need to know more.


And then once they have that information, they readily take them


up because they want to space the births


of their children, because


they will say, if I can space the births of my


children, I can then feed my kids and I can educate them.


And for them their future is all about educating their kids.


155 million women in the developing world currently use no


We don't fund it and the supply chains are broken, and so


in places like Senegal in West Africa, contraceptives, until we


started this programme, had been stocked out 80% of the time.


So, women will tell you, I leave my field, I have to make


up a reason for my husband that I'm going into town,


and then I get to the clinic and what I want isn't there.


It's literally a life and death prices


You are, your foundation, the Bill and Melinda


Gates Foundation, is promising an extra $375 million.


That's an extraordinary sum of money, over the


next four years, for global family planning efforts.


What is driving you to focus the money


Because Bill and I see the difference it makes, see how


transformative it is in families' lives, and if women can take these


tools up, and we see this demographic bulge that's happening,


1.2 billion adolescents, it's the biggest population of adolescents


we've ever had in the history of the Earth


developing world and if we don't offer them contraceptives, you are


basically putting them into a life of destitute poverty.


Whereas if you can offer a girl contraceptives,


She will tell you, I want to stay in school,


I don't want to have that first baby until I'm ready.


And today, one in five girls in the developing world


under the age of 18 die because of a pregnancy.


So we know this is one of the most important things we can


do and we are offering this money to really go after


Priti Patel, the UK Government is pledging an extra 45


million a year, I think, for the next five years.


Because, as Melinda has said and explained, the


need, the demand is enormous in the world.


You know, there are still in excess of 214 million women and


girls who simply do not have access to modern methods of family planning


Just explain to our audience why it's the


responsibility of British taxpayers to fund that.


Well, we are world leaders, obviously, working with our


partners such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and


many others in this whole area because of the wider implications.


You know, in terms of poverty


in particular - that women and girls are trapped in


that vicious cycle of poverty if they come out of education.


If they live in rural and poorer parts of


the developing world, they have no access to modern methods of


That means that their families are just going to increase,


they don't get to space out the number of children that they have,


and they are trapped in that vicious cycle and that is not good for them.


It's certainly not good for their countries as well


when those young women and girls could get their


education and then become educated, and even go to work as well and


The great thing about the summit that we have


taking place today in London is that we have a range


of our partners who are attending, but also finance


ministers, health ministers and development ministers from many of


these countries who themselves know that they need to do more work in


this area and they want to work with us, the British Government,


and with the partners as well, to ensure that


we can deal with those supply issues.


Those really crunch supply issues and get in contraceptives to


You will know, there will be people watching you who will say, we have


poverty in this country, we don't need to be spending British


taxpayers' money funding contraception for women in the


Well, I would disagree with that pretty strongly,


because, of course, you know, we have to do our bit as well as a


world leader when it comes to not just leading the world on aid and


development, but also in this area as well.


We are working with UK firms, pharmaceutical companies as well, to


really lower the price of commodities, to really, you know,


get the commodities to the women and girls that need this.


But also, to tackle some of the big challenges


The population bulge in developing countries is just going


And of course that has big pressures on our resources,


it has an enormous pressure on migration,


on the lack of jobs that


are being created in poor countries, and we are trying to work to tackle


some of those major global challenges.


We do this not on our own, obviously, but with our partners


and the United Kingdom is stepping up in this area.


Melinda Gates, you are Catholic, the Catholic Church is


How much of an issue is that for you?


What I know and what I believe is, I'm in and out of these places, this


makes a difference in women's lives. Emboyered women transform societies.


The Pope probably knows that. He's described as an enlightened Pope.


Yet the view about contraception that it's banned in the eyes of the


Catholic Church hasn't shifted. Do you think it will? I don't know. I


can't predict what he will do, but what I know about this Pope is that


he's lived amongst the poor and seen women die. So I think if you believe


in women, you offer them the right tools and offer them ways to be able


to space the births of the children so their children don't die.


Do you think that could change over time? It just may take a long time?


There are different views on this in the Catholic Church.


I can't predict what he will do but what I know


about this Pope is that he has lived amongst the poor, he has lived with


So I think if you believe in women you


And you offer them ways to be able to space


the births of their children so that their children don't die.


Do you think that could change over time?


And there are different views on this in the


But that's to prevent disease, that's different.


But they also see the difference it makes in families'


lives, to not have six and seven children.


Donald Trump has blocked US funds going to any organisation


involved in family planning, abortion advice and care overseas.


I think that any time you block something


that is right for women you're not saying that you're really for women.

of women but I'll tell you that if you're for women you fund family


planning so Bill and I are working with Congress to make sure that this

Johanna Konta beat France's Caroline Garcia in a three hour match


on court one yesterday to become the first British woman to reach


Speaking after her victory, she said it was what she had dreamed


Meanwhile defending champion and top seed Andy Murray then saw off


Frenchman Benoit Paire on Centre Court.


Johanna Konta at the top of the screen


was up against Caroline Garcia in a match of small margins.


Garcia supporters saw her take the second


set and Garcia had served brilliantly but this was match point


and this was Wimbledon, and this is a critical mistake.


Give Johanna Konta on occasion, she'll rise to it.


It's those situations that I dreamt of when I was a little girl.


And even now to be a part of those battles on big stages.


You're now the first British woman into a


quarterfinal at Wimbledon since Jo Durie in 1984.


Andy Murray was playing Benoit Paire of


France, 46 in the world, at Wimbledon Murray had never lost


Tie-break in the first, 6-4 in the second, Murray was


COMMENTATOR: That's too big, too good.


In the third set Murray got heated with the umpire


No matter, Murray said it was the best he'd hit the ball


in the tournament so far and Paire ultimately couldn't match it.


UMPIRE: Game, set and match, Murray, 3-0.


So Murray plays again tomorrow, but Konta's quarter final


is first up today - she faces a tough match against


So is it possible for two Brits to go all the way?


And does this mark a new golden age in British tennis?


We can speak now to Amanda Owens, a former professional tennis player,


And Jo Durie, who was the last British woman to reach the Wimbledon


She was formerly ranked number five in the world.


And, Andy Murray's former coach also joins us. Jo, what do you think of


Jo's contest so far? Fantastic, it's great to see a British woman in the


second week. We have always known Andy Murray can get there but Jo for


the first time has played really tough tennis. I'm not at all


surprised because she looks very good in the top ten mix now and


believes in herself. Miles, what do you think of her achievement thus


far? Not only in this tournament but in the last couple of years, it's


been amazing. She's one of these players who has really turned


herself around. There were not many people marking her out for this kind


of success. When she burst on to the stage in the Aussie Open, often that


is not backed up but she's gone from strength-to-strength and is


definitely in the mix to win this tournament. You think so? No doubt


about it. I've been fortunate to work on a couple of her matches. One


of her opponents a couple of years ago was really high quality, she


could have panicked there and she absolutely stayed the course, played


really good tennis, she's got the weapons as well to play tennis on


her own terms. There is a lot of the girls in the mix who I think just


about everybody left in the drawer, there's a case for why they could


win the tournament but Jo Konta's been very, very impressive. Jo Durie


when Miles was say ing she could win it, I saw you nodding in agreement.


Look, any one of them could win it, the last eight, they're playing


fantastic tennis. I was surprised that Jo was the bookies' favourite.


You have got Venus Williams in there who's won five times soI would have


thought she would be the favourite, but when you get to this stage, you


are playing well, used to playing and used to the grass, so any one of


the eight could win so why not Jo. OK. Amanda Owens, you used to play


tennis yourself professionally. You were nodding in agreement when Miles


said over the last few years Jo's sort of strengthened mentally as


well. Wa kind of work has she been doing? Absolutely. I agree with


Miles and Jo and Jo hi it's nice to see you both, by the way and Jo


picked me out as a tennis player a long time ago. Jo Konta, has


incredible mental strength and is brilliant under pressure. We are


seeing a player who, for the first time in a long time since Jo Durie,


that we have a player that can cope with the pressure but who plays the


points. She has enormous self-belief but the composure in her last match


and yesterday was just immense. It shows that she will go all the way.


This time in this tournament? Yes, but she's got the capability to win


a Grand Slam. The way she played yesterday and her decision-making,


it was superb. Especially on the critical points. It will be


interesting to see what Jo and Miles think. Go on, Miles? Well, I didn't


see as much of yesterday's match because I was working on some of the


other matches but again that match and the amount of times she was in


sticky situations and hit the line with her serve. Jo's incredibly


disciplined with her game style which under pressure is huge. There


are no decisions to be made, she knows what she is goes to do and


generally executes it very well. If it comes down to the wire, that is a


massive help. Having said that, I do think that, for a British player, I


remember Andy winning it for the first time. Even talking about it


now I get goose bumps, so there is going to be a different level of


pressure but it's the same for all of the girls, mainly apart from


Venus who's been there numerous times, as Jo said. Let's talk about


Andy Murray. I was on Centre Court supporting him yesterday, only the


second time I've been and I'm amazed at how close you are to the players


and that just sort of fascinated me because he's a God when he's moving


during the points but in-between, he sort of hovels around like an old


man, I hope he won't mind me saying that but that is how it looked to


me. I'm not an expert, Miles, but is that fair? Yes, he moves like the


rest of us between points, let's be fair. Like me! But it's not uncommon


for him and it looks like that hip is very much protecting it. There


was a unique match yesterday, his opponent Benoit Paire, he was made


to change direction. A couple of drop shots he went for. With Andy,


it's like a burst of speed. I don't think that is an issue. Often you


see players, they all have niggles. Sometimes in a bizarre way it can be


helpful because it takes pressure off, maybe puts a bit of focus on a


different area of their game rather than everything being about winning


this title. Jo, what are your views on how far


Andy Murray can go trying to defend the title? I think as soon as he


gets to Wimbledon and gets on Centre Court then he becomes different and


of course he might have a sore hip - join the rest of us - but once the


points start, he does move just brilliantly, one of the fastest


movers on court and he knows how to move on grass court. Health and


Safety got that down. I expect him to be in the final and probably


playing Roger Federer. That will be interesting, hopefully. Yes. Amanda


Owens, in terms of Andy Murray, he's physically and mentally bulked up.


Yes. But to cope with a bit of a pain in the hip? No. He's got so


much experience and he's so resilient. As Miles pointed out,


it's about being able to focus on what you need to focus on at that


point, it's not a distraction for him, he's playing really well


considering he's been off and has had injury anythings. -- niggles.


He's playing really well and said yesterday he was pretty happy with


the way he played. Tell us briefly some of the tips you give to the


players, tennis, rugby players, that are utilised to cope with daily


life? It's about being in the present, focussing on minefulness


and the here and now. What does that mean? It's not focussing on the


mistake, the shot you have hit or missed and not focussing on an


injured hip or anything that can be a distraction. It's being able to


refocus and reset and focus on the ball, the point and what you are


going to do right now and your game strategy. It's really important,


especially for Jo, that she focuses on her game plan and what she needs


to do, not on expectation or the bigger picture. OK. Thank you all of


you very much. Amanda, Jo and Miles, thank you. Thank you for your


comments about the cash in hand economy. We are expecting this


report on the way we work in Britain in 2017 which is due I think at


about 10. 45-ish and one thing that will be talked about is the cash in


hand economy potentially clamping down on that. Kenneth said I lived


and worked in the USA, their tax office have a formula on the website


with a section where you reply to the end, they'll tell you whether


you are self-employed or employed. If they say you are employed, the


owner of the company can go to jail. Frank says at last someone wants to


do something about cash in hand, I've been saying this for years, the


Labour Party bang on about the drum of the 1% rich and more escape tax


at the lowernd time and again. Self-employed one man bands ask are


you paying by cash or cheque. That doesn't mean they are not paying tax


on the cash but potentially might not be. Julian as a supply teacher


working through an umbrella says, I pay both employees national


insurance and employers national insurance. This cannot be right. I


have taken this up with them in the past but I just get to bed off.


Thank you for those. Today is world population day.


The global population stood at a little over five billion in 1990,


it's now more than half that again, measuring 6.7 billion. So where is


it growing fastest and will it ever slow down. We have taken a look at


the numbers. That was a global look at the


numbers on world population though. Coming up... Should your child be

A row has broken out over the marking of this year's primary


school tests after teachers complained that pupils had been


unfairly marked down on technicalities, including the size


and shape of their commas and semi-colons.


Using the hashtag #SATsshambles, teachers pointed out multiple


examples of inconsistencies in marking of key stage 2 Sats tests


for 10 and 11-year-olds and urged all schools to go


through their pupils' marked papers in detail


Let us have a look at some examples. The answer is correct, but the M


comes slightly out of the box. Look at that. The pupil has been given no


marks. That seems very harsh to me. What do I know? Next example. Too


hide, semi-colon, even though it is in the correct place -- too high.


The semi-colon is... Wow. That pupil has been given zero marks. The third


example... The comma is low but it is in the correct place. No marks


awarded. That is really tight, isn't it?


We can speak now to Brian Walton, primary school head teacher


He's been a headteacher for 15 years and is deeply concerned


What do you think? It is not hard to say what I think. It is just... How


many adults at there can use semi-colons already? The children


are using them in the right place and they are being marked wrong


because it is too big or the dot is above the letters. Ridiculous,


absolutely... What kind of impact does it have on a child when they


are marked down, when they get zero, when they have got the correct


answer? How would anybody feel if they are getting the correct answer


but they are being told it is wrong? It is in just, it is wrong. Also,


this is very high stakes, accountable tests. The schools are


judged on how they do in these tests. I have been a leader, I


support schools up and down the country, headteachers lose their


jobs if the results are not good enough, it as that. High-stakes. Who


marks the ten one? Pearson. What, sorry? Pearson. The markers are


trained and given the role, but I think it goes through Pearson. I do


not know enough at this stage. I will. That is all right. The markers


have guidelines which suggests that if the letter is slightly out of the


box... Yeah, absolutely. This is the controversy going on under the hash


tag at the moment. The markers said none of the schools knew about it so


a lot of the guidance about the size and shape and the orientation and


how we form letters, we did not know that. Already, in year six, we are


narrowing the curriculum to make sure children get the standards


because the standards are such high stakes. At the same time, this


almost Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy marking is going on


behind-the-scenes. If you had the guidance that if the semi-colon is


too high, they might get a zero, you would have said, lower the


semi-colon? We would, but again, there has to be an ethic about if


the child can use the semi-colon... Use it technically. Remember, they


are putting written by semi-colons, we are getting pernickety when we


are getting to that level. We sure are. What do you want to be done


about it? First and foremost, there needs to be a review and we need to


really look at what has happened this year. We do not know the scale.


It has happened on Twitter at the moment. It is an echo Chamber of a


small group. I have 50, 60 heads who have contacted me who are outraged.


Everyone of them has examples of this, including myself. One of my


children has marked wrong. He has written the spelling correctly, but


there is too much of a gap between two letters. There needs to be a


review of this. I am going to gather their heads together and work with


other organisations, very positively. I believe in testing and


accountability, but when it is this high-stakes and people's jobs are on


the line, something has to change, so we need to review this, seriously


take a look at it. Re-marking, are you suggesting, for some of the


children marked down perhaps unfairly? What is the purpose of


Sats? If we are thinking about children in year six going into year


seven, we want the children to have the best knowledge and skills they


can for secondary school. They roughly get ?50 million a year, I do


not know how much they... How can we have an assessment system working


for children, parents, schools? At the moment, what is Sats about? It


is about the accountability of primary schools. Thank you very


much. Brian Walton, headteacher of a primary school. This statement from


Pearson, the company who has done the marking, marking quality is


extremely important and something we monitor continuously. In the unusual


circumstances that there is an error, there is a review process in


place which ensures a fair and transparent system and enables


Pearson to correct any discrepancies and ensure pupils receive a fair


mark. If you have any examples, do let me


know. One year after taking office, Theresa May will make her first


major speech since losing her majority at the general election.


Norman, how important is this for Mrs May? Welcome to relaunch


country, this is where Theresa May is going to try to kick-start her


premiership, get the fight but going after the duffing up she had at the


hands of the electorate which has left her pretty bruised and


battered, it has left the party wondering whether they want to carry


on. -- carry on with her. Today she will make her pitch for why she


should continue as Prime Minister. Her argument will be this. She is


not just focused on Brexit, but there are a whole load of other big


issues which successive governments have dodged. Things like social


care, an obvious one. Employment rights, we will be hearing a lot of


that today. A new industrial strategy. All of the big areas which


a lot of governments have looked at and said, I cannot deal with that.


She is going to face up to those problems and I want the help of the


opposition parties in trying to push through on these things after years


when successive governments have filed them in the two difficult


draw. The thinking is to say to the troublesome backbenchers who are


thinking, we have to get rid of her. Look, I have an agenda that goes on


four years, I am not just about Brexit, I am not just going to be


here for a few months, I have a serious, long-term agenda, and the


hope is it will give her a sense of momentum, purpose, and maybe the


backbenchers will think, OK, she clearly has a lot she wants to do,


she has energy, ideas. We will carry on with Theresa May. You have to


say, it is a big ask because whenever you find clusters of Tory


MPs together, they are invariably talking about, can Theresa May


survive? A lot of people take the view her authority has been so badly


dented by the miscalculation over the general election, the real


battle she faces ahead with Brexit, that actually, perhaps, they would


be better getting someone else. Today is a attempt to shore up the


premiership to try to ensure she stays Prime Minister. She is also


going to be addressing workers' rights and the gig economy, isn't


she? That is one of the big issues she wants to tackle because the


world of work has changed massively in the last five, ten years. We no


longer work nine to five, work for a company all your life. People flit


around, different jobs, people want more flexibility. We have seen an


explosion in the so-called gig economy. The difficulty is, it is a


sort of twilight area. People who work for companies like Uber, they


are not quite self-employed, they do not have complete control, but they


are not really employees. They do not have to turn up at 9am and leave


at five. They have a rather vague area. Today we will hear this plan


from the man who used to be Tony Blair's big brains, Matthew Taylor,


who has come up with is this idea of a new category of worker called


dependent contractor and what that will mean is for those people who


work for people like Uber, they will gain some of the rights, not all, of


employees. They would in future be able to get sick display, holiday


pay, potentially the minimum wage. After a year or so, if they had been


on is there a contract, they would be able to ask the company to give


them a proper full-time contract -- if they had been on a zero hour


contract. It is trying to give those more protections. The big snout, I


think, is this. Will it actually happen? I say that because looking


at the advanced transcripts of Mrs May's speech, a lot of it seems to


be about setting benchmarks for companies and I am not entirely sure


that there will be legislation to actually make this happen. But we


will find out when she speaks. Thank you.


Plans to almost double the number of Welsh speakers are being


announced with the country's First minister urging the nation to "take


The aim is to get a million people speaking Welsh by 2050.


In the last Census there were 562,000 Welsh speakers.


Under the new proposals there will be an expansion


of Welsh speaking nurseries, and an increase in the number


of teachers for primary and secondary schools.


At the moment there are 391 Welsh speaking primary schools and 23


secondary schools The hope is that 70 percent of children leaving


So how important is it that the Welsh language


Meri Huws is the Welsh Language Commissioner and Ragsy is a singer


who who has appeared on the TV programme The Voice,


Freddie Greaves is a dad whose kids are in the Welsh-speaking stream.


Mari, tell us why you think this is important? We are a by Lang wall


country. Bilingual country. In Wales, the use of the language is


enhanced in public service, in business, and we really need to


enable young people to respond to that channel, to be there, to be


part of the workforce -- part of that challenge. To be part of this


fascinating journey we are on, creating a bling wall country where


the Welsh language is part of everyone's lives in the community in


Wales, across Wales and I think that's such a wonderful challenge.


This strategy is setting that journey very, very clearly for us.


So you are saying there are economic benefits as well as cultural? There


are cultural benefits and economic benefits. I speak regularly to


employers who're looking for bibilingual workers who could


contribute to their companies and we should celebrate the fact that it's


very much part of our iedification in Wales and we should be


celebrating that and using that economically to exhibition benefit


to cultural and social benefit. Hello, Ragsi, how are you? I'm good


thank you very much, how are you? Yes, I'm good thank you. Why are you


learning to speak Welsh and can you answer in Welsh? I'm trying to. I've


only just started in the last couple of weeks learning Welsh so...


Skaps he speaks Welsh. Skaps I'm a very passionate Welshman. It's


one of those things I've thought about and thought it's never too


late in life to learn. I wanted to perform in my native tongue being a


Welshman to and to sing with a choir so I ended up releasing a song on St


David's Day called Fields at Home. It spurred me on and I became even


more passionate to learn the language and hopefully perform more


in Welsh as well. Do you mind me asking how old you are? I'm 38. It's


interesting that you say you are never too old to learn. Let me bring


in Freddie. Two of your children are in the Welsh stream at your school.


It's much easier to learn a language when you are young isn't it because


your brain is absorbing much more, but how is it going for your


children, Freddie? Great. My six-year-old was showing off to me


this week that he knows more Welsh than me now so that's great. I was


brought up in a part of Wales where there wasn't access to Welsh


education so I always felt I missed out on some of the cultural heritage


and access. Is that the motivation for you? Was it your kids who wanted


to learn Welsh or were you saying I missed out and partly want to live


my life through you? They started in the nursery setting and at that


point they hadn't formed any opinions on the benefits of


bilingualism, but they enjoy it and my daughter enjoys singing in Welsh.


I am going to ask Ragsi to sing in Welsh in a moment. Mari, how worried


are you about potentially the Welsh language dying out, in Welsh,


please? I'm not worried. I'm seeing a new


confidence. I think we have just heard that in the two other


speakers. Those young people, those children learning Welsh today will


be our workforce of the future, our doctors, nurses, and that's going to


be a wonderful opportunity for them. It's not only the culture but


they'll contribute to Wales and a Wales which will be bilingual.


Ragsi, take it away. I don't know how you can hold your phone because


you are on face time and I don't know if you have your guitar with


you? I haven't but I would like to thank the guys at the university for


helping me in learning this language as well with the Welsh school and if


anybody wants to check him out go on www. Learn welsh. Cymru. This is the


song I released on St David's Day. I will give you a burst of that.


That was absolutely gorgeous, thank you so much. That was an unexpected


pleasure at 10. 45 on a Tuesday morning! Thank you!


We haven't talked about the sort of musicality, I don't mean the music


there, but actually the Welsh language is sort of, I don't know,


lyrical a bit, is that fair, Mari, what would you say? The Welsh


language is amazing, it's a very old language and yes, that musicality


and that was a wonderful performance, thank you very, very


much, and if you understood the words you would realise how


important the words were and how relevant to what is being announced


today. We sing, we celebrate and I think what we need to do more and


more is celebrate our Welshness and be proud of it. Ragsi, what is the


message of what you have just sung to us in Welsh? The song is all


about it feels like home and Wales is such a warm, friendly nation and


no matter where you go in Wales, it always feels like home so yes,


that's the kind of message that I wrote about in that song.


Lovely. Thank you so much all of you. Thank you. Freddie good luck to


the children, Ragsi thank you for singing and mari, good luck. Thank


you. We were talking about school children being marked down in their


SATs. We have a statement. They were being marked down for tiny things


like putting a letter outside the box that you are supposed to put it


in and a semi colon being in the right place but being a bit too


high. The Department of Education says: There are a number of measures


in place to ensure schools, Key Stage two, teacher assessment


judgments are robust and accurate. Teachers have a statutory duty to


ensure the school's judgments are an accurate assessment of pupil


attainment. They are encouraged to moderate their judgments with other


schools. The testing agency takes any issues with accuracy of schools,


teacher assessment judgment seriously. Any concerns about


particular schools should be reported to the board so they may be


properly investigated. Lots of you have been getting in touch with us


about this major review into the way we work in Britain today which we


talked about earlier on the programme. One key recommendation is


tond the so-called cash in hand economy. The report's author claims


cash jobs like window cleaning and decorating with worth up to ?6


billion a year, much of it untaxed. Brian says every week there seems to


be a new car wash opening around here where I live. They charge


around ?5 per wash and have cars queueing during the dry days, none


of them offer a receipt so the money taken is lost from the economy, many


of the car washes are manned by non-speaking Europeans. Christine


says, I do believe self-employment is being abused by employers or


agencies. However, it is an impossible task to assume it could


be wiped out at every level. Many start up businesses with limited


funds and have started this way such as retaining, not employing salesmen


and contractors and it would be interesting how say knocking the vat


off for cash for a customer who often insists on this will be


tackled. Let us talk to Liz Mayall, chair of


Turf Mark, a scheme that signposts people to local reputable firms and


trades people. Hi there. Reputable meaning what? These are uniquely


firms that have been tested for and checked for three things; they have


obviously been checked for their business practices, good customer


references but critically, they have been checked for technical


competence and Turf Mark is the only scheme of this sort set up by the


Government just over ten years ago, it's the only scheme that does all


three of the checks. . -- Trust maencht So you don't mind if your


tradesmen get paid cash or not? I prefer they don't. You have no way


of what happens when a plumber walks into a customer's house and the


conversation that goes on, so how do you know? Trust Mark is about


professionalism and the trades people we give the badge to, they


earn that badge, they don't buy it and they earn it through their


professionalism. A key part of professionalism is about having a


really good business practice. It's good for the customer, very good for


the businesses as well. What about when the customer says, OK, thanks


for your quote, how much for cash, meaning, you know, I'll give you the


cash, you don't have to bay the VAT and we won't tell anybody? Well,


good tradesmen generally will say I'm sorry that's not the way we


operate. We will give you a very good quote, we'll be as competitive


as we can, we'll give you the benefits of our expertise and we'll


invoice you at the end of the process. There are also other


payment options available that if people don't want to do it by


cheque, an old-fashioned way of doing thicks, you know, but there


are other payment options available. OK, and the other payment options,


for example include? Well, if you've got a big project, I would certainly


say look at ESCRO schemes, Trust Mark has one, that works where the


customer puts in the money, you agree a deal between you and the


person, you put the money into a scheme and then that money is


released at agreed stages when work is done. If the work is not


completed, you get the money back for the work that's not been done.


Thank you very much Liz. BBC newsroom live is next. Thanks for


your company.
