In the first show of 2022, Tom Swarbrick was joined by leading political figures to break down the week's biggest stories.

The Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi confirmed that the government will keep lateral flow tests free for now, amid confusion over whether they will have to be paid for in future.

Mr Zahawi also said that 'the best way' government can help Brits pay skyrocketing energy bills is 'to make sure there's a job available for them'.

Shadow Chancellor Rachel Reeves hit out at the government's lack of support for families struggling amid skyrocketing energy costs.

Swarbrick on Sunday is live from LBC's Westminster studio every Sunday from 10am and you can watch live on Global Player.
