Consumers are paying the price for warehouse shortfall
A major new report on the UK logistics sector has urged for land to be set aside for industrial space by the government, warning that a growing shortfall could crush out online retailers. More than 18million sq. ft. of new industrial space is needed annually to satisfy exponential e-commerce growth and demand from parcel delivery firms, says City law firm Addleshaw Goddard. A massive shortfall could see consumers having to pick up the tab for the higher cost of industrial space for retailers and couriers. To discuss this further, Leona Ahmed, Head of Real Estate at law firm Addleshaw Goddard, joined Share Radio Breakfast.

Pharmaceutical drugs price hike: other reasons beyond profit?
Pharmaceutical companies are in the news again being accused of unreasonable price hikes. This time it's Actavis UK, who have been accused by the NHS of overcharging for a "lifesaving" drug by raising the price more than 12 thousand percent. This follows similar situations such as Pfizer being charged a record 107 million dollar fine for allegedly overcharging for an epilepsy treatment, and the Martin Shkreli scandal, when the U.S. Pharmaceutical Executive bought the rights to Daraprim, and raised the price more than 50-fold. Share Radio's Matt Cox has been investigating these price hikes. He spoke to Dr Amit Roy pharmaceutical analyst and founder of independent investment research firm Foveal.
