PMQs!

This week saw the ‘battle of the deputies’ in Parliament during Prime Minister’s Questions, with Angela Eagle taking on George Osbourne. Most people gave eagle the win. How do you think they did? Missed it? Don't forget, we tweet all the live action from PMQs every week on @easypoliticsuk. In the meantime, here are our highlights on what to look out for in Parliament next week.

Welfare Reform and Work Bill
This is intended to encourage people into work but has been pretty controversial. It will create an annual benefits cap of £13,400 (£20,000 a couple - more in London).

It's being examined by the House of Lords – this is will continue on Monday.

Enterprise Bill

The plan is to set up a Small Business Conciliation service, where businesses can settle their differences. However, this may only be possible if they get on board in large numbers.

This Bill's journey through the Lords will finish on Tuesday. Commons next!
More details
Education and Adoption Bill

This will turn more schools into academies to improve school performance, and could also take adoption powers from local authorities to create more efficient adoption agencies.

It's almost there - this will be a completed law early in 2016.
