Swarbrick on Sunday | Watch in full

Tom Swarbrick was joined by figures across the world of business and politics for Swarbrick On Sunday. You can watch this week's instalment in full here.

With Wales moving into local lockdown this week, concerns over UK borrowing reaching a staggering £1 billion-a-day grow. Tom Swarbrick speaks to business leaders about what the implications of such high borrowing could be.

Shadow Mental Health Minister Dr Rosena Allin-Khan told Tom that the Government is 'turning a blind eye' to mental health during the pandemic

Business leaders Theo Paphitis and Sir Martin Sorrell branded the Welsh Government's current clamp down on non-essential items amid their coronavirus lockdown the actions of a nanny state.

The chief of the Welsh Police Federation insisted that 'practical solutions' need to be found for the public to support and live with the non-essentials ban.

Former head of the Civil Service Lord Sedwill told Tom that political decisions restricted the UK's pandemic preparedness, leading to a poor response to Covid-19.

Swarbrick on Sunday is live from LBC's Westminster studio every Sunday from 10am on Global Player, Facebook, Twitter and Youtube.
