Women effectively work for free for 66 days annually because of the gender pay gap. All this and more on the News Review

What do employers need to do to reign in the gender pay gap?
New analysis published by the TUC on Friday reveals that the average woman has to wait nearly a fifth of a year (66 days) before she starts to get paid, compared to the average man. The analysis shows that inequality within the workplace is still a major issue. So what do employers need to do to reign in the gap? Scarlet Harris, Policy Officer at the TUC, joined Share Radio Breakfast to discuss.

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.

Brexit and the UK commercial property market
Research from Real Capital Analytics has found that Germany's unseated the UK as the most active commercial real-estate market in Europe. It says the data reflects greater caution amongst investors toward Britain after it voted to leave the European Union. But City of London solicitors, Rosling King, who specialise in the sector, paints a rosier picture. They argue the UK will still have one of the biggest and most dynamic commercial real estate markets, regardless of Brexit uncertainty. Share Radio's James Brydges spoke to Alexander Pelopidas, Partner at Rosling King.
