Support for Scottish Independence is as strong as ever
To go through all the political headlines this morning, Georgie Frost was joined Billy Bambrough, Editor of Verdict.co.uk. A survey shows support for Scottish independence is at its highest ever. The ScotCen research group says 46 percent of the Scottish public want a split from the UK - that's a record level for the annual poll. But the Scottish Social Attitudes survey also suggested the popularity of the European Union has fallen.

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.

Is the sluggish Scottish retail sector all thanks to the second Scottish referendum?
The Scottish Retail Consortium in conjunction with KPMG has released its latest retail sales monitor today. It seems the retail sector in Scotland has got off to a somewhat sluggish start with the figures suggesting Scottish consumers are beginning to tighten their belts. However, with Spring just around the corner perhaps the high-street will become more appealing? Joining Nigel Cassidy to discuss further was Ewan MacDonald-Russell, Head of Policy at the Scottish Retail Consortium.

There's a record-breaking 4 million businesses in the UK - but can they last?
New figures just out show that the number of companies in the UK has reached a record high - breaking the four million threshold for the first time. The boom is fuelled in a large part by the formation of new companies, with roughly 665 thousand started in the UK last year. But is this symptomatic of a flexible, dynamic workforce - or are there just no more full time jobs? Nigel Cassidy was joined by Jonathan Richards, CEO at breatheHR, a firm that provides software to SMEs.
