Cebr's Vicky Pryce on what to expect from the BoE interested rate decision
Will solid data be enough for the Bank of England to raise interest rates later? The Bank is expected to keep rates at 0.25 percent, as the economy defied the uncertainty that followed the Brexit vote. BOE Governor Mark Carney will announce his decision at mid-day. Share Radio's James Brydges spoke to Vicky Pryce, from the Centre for Economics and Business Research, who explained why she believes that rates will be left where they are.

The Weeks Update

The Weeks Update: Turkey is wracked by violence and instability, what comes next? Featuring Professors Mehmet Ugur & John Weeks
Turkish warplanes killed thirteen suspected militants of the Kurdistan Workers Party, or PKK, in the southeast province of Diyarbakir. Government planes also struck PKK targets in the nearby provinces of Siirt and Hakkari and in areas of neighbouring northern Iraq where the PKK has bases. South east Turkey, home to most of the country's 15 million Kurds, has been wracked by violence since the collapse of a ceasefire in 2014 which led to the PKK resuming its armed campaign for greater autonomy. Meanwhile Kurdish militants from a PKK splinter group have claimed responsibility for a car bomb attack in Istanbul in which eleven people died. Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has used the violence as a reason for tightening his grip on power - evidence, according to his critics, of authoritarianism. So what does the future now hold for a country once regarded by western powers as a crucial ally? For more analysis Juliette is joined by Professor Mehmet Ugur of Greenwich University, and by Professor John Weeks, Share Radio's regular economics commentator.

John Weeks & Sir David Omand, former Director General at GCHQ on terrorism & security
The Weeks Update: In the wake of the killings in Brussels a number of people were arrested, although on Monday a man charged with direct involvement, was released due to a lack of evidence. The challenge now is to track down other militants and break up existing IS cells before they strike again. That won't be easy since the exact number isn't known and - as Brussels illustrated - there will always be terrorist suspects who evade the intelligence gathering net, especially if sections of that net are already weak. Joining Investment Perspectives host Juliette Foster with more analysis is Sir David Omand, the former Director General of the government intelligence organisation GCHQ, and Professor John Weeks, Share Radio's regular economics commentator.
