The EU referendum: Is the leave campaign ahead in the polls? Fraser Nelson of The Spectator spoke to Share Radio's Robert Van Egghen for more
The latest "poll of polls" for the EU Referendum shows the Remain side's lead is narrowing. The poll by NatCen Social Research shows just 51% of voters want Britain to stay in the EU. But another recent poll by the ORB shows that if only those likely to vote are counted, it is actually the Leave side who are ahead. Earlier Share Radio's Robert Van Egghen spoke to Fraser Nelson, Editor of The Spectator magazine. They began by discussing whether with the more committed supporters the Leave campaign could win the referendum.

Morning Money: Should the BoE focus more on industry outside of London?

So should the bank be charged with paying more attention to industry and commerce outside the capital? One body of business people scrutinising the MPC every month are the North East Shadow Monetary Policy Committee, and Christopher White, Chair of the NE Shadow MPC and Finance Director at Darlington Building Society, joined Share Radio to discuss.
