BT has been told it must be partially broken up - because it's not doing enough to meet competition rules.
Ofcom, the telecoms regulator, has ordered BT to split from its subsidiary Openreach. Openreach is the part of the business which runs the physical cables and phone lines which most broadband and phone companies use to connect with with customers. It has been the source of a great deal of criticism of BT, with rival telecoms companies accusing it of underinvesting and prioritising BT customers at their expense. Ofcom has suggested Openreach is split off from its parent, with a separate board and control of its own branding and budget. Simon spoke to David Millett, of independent telecoms brokerage Equinox.

In last week's Autumn Statement, the chancellor reitterated his commitment to create three million new apprenticeships by 2020 to improve Britain's productivity and support social mobility. This will be funded by the apprenticeship levy due to come into force next April, where employers with a wage bill of more than £3 million a year will have to pay 0.5 per cent of what they spend on salaries. However, Chancellor Philip Hammond did not give any more details on the apprenticeship levy in his statement, leaving small and medium sized businesses concerned they could miss out on the funding available.

Would leaving the single market be damaging to almost every sector of the British economy?
Leaving the single market would be damaging to almost every sector of the British economy, from manufacturing and energy to retail and financial services. This is according to research from the Centre for Economics and Business Research and campaign group, Open Britain. It found that aiming to strike sector-by-sector trade deals with the EU after Brexit could take almost 25 years. To discuss the importance of the UK economy and its dependence, both direct and indirect, on trading with the Single Market, Simon spoke to Joe Carberry, co-executive director at Open Britain.
