Share Politics: A business rate betrayal?
It's time to talk politics. The House of Lords has begun debating the Article 50 bill - legislation that, if passed, would empower Theresa May to trigger the UK's departure from the EU. Meanwhile, the Government has locked horns with its backbenchers over growing fears they may revolt on a re-evaluation of business rates. Adjustment occurs every 5 years or so to reflect changes in the property market, but, with the prospect of rate rises in Tory heartlands, not all Conservative MPs are onboard. Senior ministers have penned a letter to stave off the rebels-in-waiting, insisting bills will not rise for most firms. Will the Lords block Brexit? Is the Government about to blow small business out of the water? Simon was joined in the studio by Jerry Hayes, former Conservative MP and now barrister and political commentator, Bob Neil MP, former Communities and Local Government Minister, and Dr Nicholas Wright, Teaching Fellow in EU Politics at University College London.

For more on how the battle is unfolding, Share Radio's Ed Bowsher spoke with John Curtice, politics professor at the University of Strathclyde and research consultant to NatCen Social Research.

Women and Money: Children's car seats
In less than two weeks, on March 1st, the rules on child car seats change. You won't be able to buy a backless booster seat unless your child is at least 125cm tall or weighs at least 22 kg (around three and a half stone). Buying a car seat for your child - and buying things like a buggy or pushchair - can also be something of a minefield. Sarah Pennells was joined in the studio by freelance personal finance journalist Donna Ferguson, Anne-Marie O'Leary, Editor-in-Chief of Netmums and Kevin Clinton, Head of Road Safety at ROSPA.
