Labour has reported two members of Sir Keir Starmer's leadership campaign team to the Information Commissioner, over a potential data breach of the party's member database. Sir Keir's team call the allegations 'utter, utter nonsense'. The Party insists it was their duty to report the issue.

Also on the programme, what is the Government's plan for the Supreme Court? We ask current Lord Chancellor Robert Buckland. Our pundits this week are Jason Groves from the Daily Mail, Kate Proctor from the Guardian, and the comedian Grace Campbell.
