Illegal Saudi arms deals, Cameron’s bunch of migrants & Does the law protect child abusers? (E300)

Afshin Rattansi goes underground on the illegal bombing of civilians in Yemen, institutional abuse at G4S & David Cameron attacking Jeremy Corbyn about his disgraceful predecessors. Amnesty International UK’s arms programme director Oliver Sprague asks whether Saudi Arabia is blackmailing the British government. And why is it not mandatory in the UK for people to report child abuse? Tom Perry, founder of Mandate Now, criticizes government cuts that have led to victims of abuse not having access to proper therapy. Plus Afshin discusses this week’s PMQs & the PM's outburst against refugees.

"Our Child Protection Policy was drawn up with the help of the NSPCC, the Lucy Faithful Organisation and Local Safeguarding Children Boards. We continue to work with these organisations where appropriate, when amending or updating the policy. Last year, an independent review of our safeguarding processes by Good Corporation tested and examined our child protection policies against a total of 49 criteria. We regularly review our policies and of course will learn any lessons from the DJS Review to ensure that they are as robust as they can be."
