In what should have been a big final week of term at Westminster, Boris Johnson had to abandon plans for a big announcement on social care reform.

Plus, how a new front has opened in the ongoing war of attrition with the EU over the Northern Ireland protocol.

Presented by George Parker, with Sarah Neville, Peter Foster, Jim Pickard and Lord Gavin Barwell. Produced by Howie Shannon. The sound engineer was Breen Turner.
