Is no EU single market deal better than a bad deal?
A new report says the benefits of the single market are 'largely imaginary.' That's according to social policy think-tank Civitas. It argues that exports from non-EU countries to the single market have grown faster than the UK's, and that therefore no deal is better than a bad deal. Jonathan Portes is professor of economics at King’s College London, and told Share Radio's James Brydges that the report was flawed.

Will the Government decide to raise the pension age 70?
The Treasury's thinking about raising the state pension age to 70 for people in their 20s. Analysis for the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) suggests that under 30s will have to work more as they live longer. A separate report, by John Cridland, former boss of the Confederation of British Industry, says those under 45 may have to work to 68. The government is due to make a decision on both reports by May. Former pensions minister Sir Steve Webb spoke to Share Radio's James Brydges.
