This is Money: Horology & Heathrow
Welcome to This is Money, the podcast, presented in partnership with NS&I. Editor Simon Lambert and Consumer Affairs Editor Lee Boyce join Share Radio’s Georgie Frost in the studio to go through the week’s biggest money stories. And this week it’s all about Heathrow, the decision to expand the airport and build the third runway. But the question is, how will the decision from Downing Street impact the economy and the people in the surrounding areas. The expansion is set to drop house prices in the region due to an increase in noise and air pollution. Away from the London airport, its good news for people seeking compensation as both Lloyds and Barclays this week have saved the cash to pay out. And have you ever wondered what would happen to your pension if you got divorce, can your ex take half that pension. Listen in to find out. All this plus much more. This is Money is presented by Georgie Frost, in partnership with NS&I.
