The government is facing another big Tory rebellion, this time over the cladding scandal which has seen people trapped in unsafe, unsellable flats after the Grenfell disaster, because their buildings are covered in unsafe material. Boris Johnson’s lockdown caution is also causing consternation on the backbenches, as the vaccine rollout continues to move along at pace.

Meanwhile, a week to forget for Keir Starmer adds to a sense of dissatisfaction at the party’s direction of travel in Labour.

Tory MP Stephen McPartland joins Arj Singh, Paul Waugh and Rachel Wearmouth to discuss his fight to help those caught up in the cladding scandal and what’s happening in Westminster this week.
