Marcus Mason, Head of Business, Education and Skills at the British Chambers of Commerce, on childcare
One in four UK businesses say their employees have cut their hours owing to the high cost of childcare. The report from the British Chambers of Commerce also showed that 10% of employers had had staff quit their jobs entirely for the same reason. Its report is calling on the Government to allow policy to revolve around working parents. Measures could include additional childcare subsidies, possibly by extending existing support to the working parents of one and two year olds. Georgie was joined on the line by Marcus Mason, Head of Business, Education and Skills at the British Chambers of Commerce.

Is insurance heading towards a digital transformation?
It seems that in spite of the UK's leadership in so many financial and techie areas, it's taking a long time to drag insurance into the cloud-based, digital age. It could be because of regulation and worries about security but insurance remains a very traditional industry with much processing and record-taking still carried out on paper. Unsurprisingly, the financial service technology provider FIS wants to change all this. It has just asked 500 global insurance companies about their attitudes to industry innovation. Share Radio's Presenter Nigel Cassidy spoke to Martin Sarjeant, Risk Solutions Chief at FIS, to find out more

Could Marine Le Pen become the next French president?
The French Prime Minister Manuel Valls has admitted that Front National leader Marine LePen could win the upcoming presidential election. Mr Valls says Donald Trump's victory in America had shown that similar anti-globalisation nationalist rhetoric could triumph in France as well. Ms Le Pen's centre right rival French ex-President Nicolas Sarkozy has been knocked out of the primary to choose a presidential candidate, and with the mainstream parties struggling to decide on their preferred candidate, the Front National leader is wasting no time in trying to appeal to voters.
