UK construction industry could lose 200,000 EU workers if Britain leaves single market
The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) says the UK construction industry could lose almost 200,000 EU workers if Britain leaves the single market. It argues that alternative plans need to be put in place in the event of a hard Brexit, otherwise some of the country's biggest infrastructure and construction projects could be put under threat. Abdul Choudhury, RICS Policy Manager for London, joined Nigel Cassidy on Share Radio Breakfast to discuss this.

How would a Minimum Excise Tax for cigarettes affect independent retailers?
With the Spring Budget just around the corner, certain industries might be feeling a little worried with tax hikes on the horizon. One of the suggested tax hikes is cigarette tax, with the Chancellor expected to set a Minimum Excise Tax for cigarettes. There are concerns amongst retailers that this tax could have a major impact on their sales, as well as potentially costing UK taxpayers an estimated £1.2 billion in lost revenue. Will Hill, Director of British American Tobacco UK, joined Share Radio Breakfast to discuss this further.

“I don’t think May’s leaving anything to chance, and she’ll have worked out Trump’s approach” – Allyson Stewart-Allen
Theresa May is currently in the unenviable position of simultaneously having to negotiate trade deals with Europe to the East, and the US to the West. And as with all British business leaders trying to build their US sales and presence, the Prime Minister must ensure she is in sync with the American businessman leading the country. Allyson Stewart-Allen is the Director at International Marketing Partners, and she joined Nigel Cassidy on Share Radio Breakfast to offer her views on the approach May should take.
