Flow of trade to EU ‘crucial’ to cities across UK
The EU is the biggest market for UK exports - and failing to secure a good trade deal post-Brexit will be a major issue for cities across the country. Can other deals pick up the slack? Or does the UK have to get good access to EU markets? The latest report from thinktank the Centre for Cities focused on exports in the UK's 62 biggest centres and Paul Swinney, principal economist at the centre, joined Ed Bowsher to expand on their findings.

This is Money: Don't be fooled by the FTSE.
Welcome to the This is Money and Share Radio podcast, brought to you in partnership with NS&I. We’re still on course for Brexit, albeit pending Parliament’s approval. Already a number of banks seem intent on following through on their threats to relocate jobs, but what about the local branches already shutting down across the UK? Meanwhile the FTSE continues to soar on the back of the slumping pound but questions remain as to the underlying health of the UK economy. Inflation also looks set to rise as does national debt although the latest GDP figures do offer some good news at least. To discuss how people can save and invest for the turbulent times ahead Georgie Frost is joined in the studio by Editor Simon Lambert and Deputy Editor Adrian Lowrey. Plus just when BT thought their problems couldn’t get any worse we’ll be announcing the results of the annual Money Mail Wooden Spoon Awards. This is Money is presented by Georgie Frost in partnership with NS&I.
