The papers: Saturday's front pages

Jeremy Cliffe of the Economist and the writer Dreda Say Mitchell reviewed Saturday's newspapers for the BBC News Channel.

The discussion began with a look at a Guardian story about an equal pay test case being brought by women supermarket workers.

A Daily Telegraph report on call by a government adviser for primary school children to be taught about drugs was the next topic of conversation.

Other talking points included figures suggesting families with stay-at-home parents are the only group in the UK shouldering a heavier tax burden than the international average, and a call by grassroots Tory supporters for the prime minister to face UKIP leader Nigel Farage in a TV debate before the general election.
