article appears next to an advertisement saying do not switch, stay put. it is not a good time to work out which energy company is going to give you the next deal. the implication is they may not be in business and in a few weeks' time. one of the other problem is that the prime minister has a facing him. to quote for the mp for stevenage, the south of england, if we are going to level up the country, we have to help those on the lowest incomes, not pull the rug out from under them as they are getting back on their feet. just to tidy a line up on a treasury spreadsheet.- feet. just to tidy a line up on a treasury spreadsheet. well, i think it is re treasury spreadsheet. well, i think it is pretty dangerous _ treasury spreadsheet. well, i think it is pretty dangerous moment - treasury spreadsheet. well, i think it is pretty dangerous moment for i it is pretty dangerous moment for borisjohnson and his government. we are seeing £20 per week uplift to universal credit and that the same
9:45 am
week energy bills are rising come on top of that do not forget that at the end of next last week furlough ended, as well as reliefs businesses have enjoyed. we are heading into an autumn and winter where the cost of living crisis potentially looms. on top of that, we have seen problems with shortages at the petrol pumps, on supermarket shelves, concerns about deliveries of other products, including turkey and party foods in the run—up to christmas. i think the prime minister, he will want this conference to be a chance to reset, relaunches government as, touch wood, it comes out of the other side of the pandemic. he wants to pivot looking at the rest of the time will looking at the rest of the time will look like with the focus on levelling up. there are these external problems, that i have mentioned and some of the government plus my own making, the end of universal credit uplift. so far at the treasury has stood firm that it
9:46 am
is not going to move on that front, pointing out it is really expensive policy. it cost £6 billion per year. the treasury argues it was only introduced for the extraordinary circumstances of the pandemic. since living gusts are going up, i think there will be increasing pressure from tory mps, as you pointed out, notjust from tory mps, as you pointed out, not just from the from tory mps, as you pointed out, notjust from the north, but from the south—east and parts of the country, really worried about the impact on hard up families this autumn. �* , impact on hard up families this autumn. v . ~ impact on hard up families this autumn. �*, ., ~ ., , ., ., autumn. let's talk a bit about what boris johnson _ autumn. let's talk a bit about what boris johnson wants _ autumn. let's talk a bit about what boris johnson wants to _ autumn. let's talk a bit about what boris johnson wants to talk - autumn. let's talk a bit about what boris johnson wants to talk about | autumn. let's talk a bit about what| boris johnson wants to talk about at this conference. borisjohnson wants to talk about at this conference. big boris johnson wants to talk about at this conference. big bold borisjohnson wants to talk about at this conference. big bold decisions. what sort of things is he thinking of, do you think? t what sort of things is he thinking of, do you think?— what sort of things is he thinking of, do you think? i think he wants tot of, do you think? i think he wants to try and — of, do you think? i think he wants to try and probably _ of, do you think? i think he wants to try and probably pick— of, do you think? i think he wants to try and probably pick my - of, do you think? i think he wants to try and probably pick my flesh l of, do you think? i think he wants l to try and probably pick my flesh on the bones of levelling up, which as john said, critics have called an empty slogan. i think he will be wanting to talk about his vision for the country, infrastructure, upgrades, it is touted he is going to talk about important transport

9:54 am
and the government, to reassure women in the wake of the horrific murder, but also that of the schoolteacher in recent weeks. thank ou. pare schoolteacher in recent weeks. thank you- page two _ schoolteacher in recent weeks. thank you- page two of _ schoolteacher in recent weeks. thank you. page two of the _ schoolteacher in recent weeks. thank you. page two of the times, - schoolteacher in recent weeks. thank you. page two of the times, we - schoolteacher in recent weeks. thank you. page two of the times, we have done an interview on this, schools could open on saturdays. that is extraordinary. it may be controversial. 135 thousand pupils disappearfrom controversial. 135 thousand pupils disappear from the school roll. just a disappear from the school roll. tt,3t a horrifying statistic. so many children seem to have vanished from the classroom. the study shows that it is believed that some of these children have been picked up, groomed by gangs and have been sneered into crime, which is appalling to hear. others are thought to be suffering from anxiety and depression and that is the reason they have not returned to schools after they opened up again after the summer holidays. interesting that schools are dealing
9:55 am
with this, what the tory mp who chairs the education committee, an epidemic of ghost classrooms. some schools have been sending out mobile classrooms into the community. other schools are looking at ways of extending the day, as you say, moving on to a different element of this, looking at the education catch up. whether that should be extending the date monday to friday, or indeed saturday school for parents that are willing to agree to that for their children. there is obviously a lot to be done to make up on all the hours are lost during the pandemic. john? , ., ., , , hours are lost during the pandemic. john? , .,.,, , john? yes, scandalous. this could be a front-page — john? yes, scandalous. this could be a front-page story- — john? yes, scandalous. this could be a front-page story. up _ john? yes, scandalous. this could be a front-page story. up to _ john? yes, scandalous. this could be a front-page story. up to 135,000 i a front—page story. up to 135,000 children— a front—page story. up to 135,000 children may not have gone back to school _ children may not have gone back to school post—pandemic. one of the unintended consequences of this
