Description

The government starts the week on a positive note, announcing that it's offering millions more people the coronavirus vaccine.

But trouble may be brewing in Parliament, where MPs face a vote on the planned cut to Universal Credit. Simon Hoare, Conservative MP for North Dorset, tells Bloomberg Westminster's Roger Hearing and Sebastian Salek he's considering supporting Labour's motion to keep the £20 increase.

Plus, how much difference does that boost mean for recipients? Emma Revie, chief executive of the Trussell Trust, joins to discuss that and free school meals.
