India's parliament has passed a new bill banning child labour, except for family businesses. The BBC's Sanjoy Majumder explains the controversy, and we have reaction from Vandhana Kandhari from the children's charity Unicef, who is based in Delhi. Also in the programme, Britain's economy grew faster than expected in the run-up to last month's vote on whether to leave the EU. Our regular economic commentator Roger Bootle of Capital Economics gives us his thoughts. And as Democrats nominate America's first ever female presidential candidate, the BBC's Fergus Nicoll is in Philadelphia where the party is trying to focus on core issues of concern to millennials.
