Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: Drivers: Pay More For Motorways?
First up: now you’ve had 24 hours to think about it I thought we should hear what you think of government plans to get drivers to pay more if they want to use motorways. Is this a sensible way of making local trips more affordable? Or would dearer motorways amount to fast track motoring for the rich? Does it all depend on how much more the top tier costs?

We’ll take plenty of calls on that before it’s over to Kelsey for the rest of the day’s news.

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Contraceptive Jabs At 13 - Should Mum Know?
After that: Should mum be told if her 13-year-old daughter has been given a contraceptive jab by the school nurse? The law says no. With teen pregnancy rates falling, I wondered if parents should accept the fact their underage girls are entitled to a degree of privacy?

Part 6: Are All Female Boxers Gay Or Abused?
Moving on: Are all female boxers gay or victims of abuse as a former American boxing chief claimed last week. To be fair this guy wasn’t dissing lady pugilists but attempting to explain what makes a champ. Nevertheless I know a lot of you girls fancy yourself as boxers. Are you all gay or the victims of abuse?

Part 7: What If Practice Doesn’t Make Perfect?
And finally: you know the phrase practice makes perfect? And all those claims that if you spend 10,000 hours on something you’d master it - well what if you that doesn’t happen. A chance to hear from all you failed musicians, sports stars, linguists, artists, chefs and so on.
