Iain Duncan Smith MP, Conservative Party leader

In the run up to this week's local elections, Sir David Frost was joined this morning by the Conservative leader, Iain Duncan Smith and the Liberal Democrat leader, Charles Kennedy. Both had criticism of the government's proposals to remove child benefit from the parents of persistent young offenders and truants. Mr Duncan Smith condemned the plans as a "gimmick" and "cynical". Mr Kennedy expected the idea to "die a death".

Sir David also spoke to Dianne Thompson, chief executive of the lottery operator Camelot who announced that the main prize draw is to be rebranded as Lotto. She outlined how the national lottery will receive a 72 million overall while admitting that the game had become a "bit boring".

There was an interview with Cliff Richard who has had hits for more than 40 years and this month released his 129th single - called "Let me be the One".

And as always there was a review of the papers - this week with the columnist and broadcaster Jane Moore and Deputy Chairman of the London Assembly, Trevor Phillips.
