Dominic Raab and Owen Jones on meritocracy and schools

Conservative MP Dominic Raab, who has written a report on how to make Britain more of a meritocracy, debated those ideas with the left-wing columnist Owen Jones.

Daily Politics presenter Jo Coburn asked them whether public schools have a stranglehold on the upper echelons of British public life, and what could be done about it, after they watched footage of a school football match from 1937.
