Rolling coverage of all the days political developments, including the launch of the northern high-speed rail report and David Cameron facing MPs to explain the EUs demand for £1.7bn
Welcome to Politics Live on Monday 27 October. Im standing in for Andrew Sparrow today, as hes taking a well-earned rest after the non-stop action of the Scottish referendum, party conferences and Clacton byelection. The schedule is looking fairly busy already:
10.30 George Osborne and David Cameron are in Leeds for the launch of a report on another high-speed rail line in the north. Overnight, the newspapers have been briefed about the governments backing for a new HS3 line connecting Liverpool to Hull via Manchester, Leeds and Sheffield.
