Global News Perspectives with Ed Mitchell

Dominic King, Head of Policy at UK steel talks about the ongoing Tata steel situation
Investment Perspectives: There are many aspects and huge ramifications associated with the Tata steel saga but at the heart of the matter is selling the right quality steel, at the right price, to the right customer in the right place. Given that the UK, or indeed other European producers, will never be able to compete with the giant producers of China. The Focus may have to be on niche, high end production. For his views, Ed Mitchell of Investment Perspectives is joined on the line by Dominic King, Head of Policy at UK steel, the trade association for the British steel industry.

The Weeks Update

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.
