Nicola Sturgeon believes a second Scottish Referendum is 'common sense'
To go through all the political headlines this morning with Georgie Frost was Josh Lowe of Newsweek magazine. Of course dominating the news was Chancellor Philip Hammond's Budget speech. But how was it received? Moving elsewhere within British politics, and Nicola Sturgeon has been talking about a second Scottish Referendum. She has said that it would be 'common sense' to hold a vote in Autumn 2018. And it's the EU Leaders Summit today in Brussels - Theresa May will be there. But will it be her last before triggering Article 50?

How will the Government assist vulnerable tenants being pushed out of the exorbitant private rental market?
According to The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) latest residential market survey the UK’s most vulnerable tenants are being pushed out of the private rental market due to rising rents and benefits cuts. However, could the government offer some assistance? Respondents to the survey suggested that more than half of the UK's private landlords would be prepared to rent their properties to homeless people or those on housing benefits if the Government introduced some form of state-endorsed deposit guarantor scheme. But is this really feasible? Joining Nigel Cassidy to give his analysis is Simon Rubinsohn, Chief Economist at RICS.
