KPMG report recommends Ship Register part-privatisation
A new report by KPMG for the Department of Transport suggests privatising the Ship Register would help attract more shipping companies to Britain. UK shipping accounts for less than 1% of global tonnage and the UK-registered fleet has shrunk by 18% in the past five years. The report claims a part-privatisation would give British shipping greater commercial freedom and could help the country compete on the global stage after Brexit. Share Radio's Robert Van Egghen reports on Britain's return to the open waves.

What can we learn from how Flying Tiger Copenhagen trade?
There are only eleven shopping days left until Christmas and it's already apparent who some of the winners and losers might be on our high streets. But if the queues around their stores are anything to do by, one of the festive winners may be Flying Tiger Copenhagen, until recently known as Tiger. Flying Tiger stores sell everyday home and kitchenware, stationery and toys, often with a Scandinavian design twist. The first UK store was in Basingstoke, and now the company counts 80 stores in the country, 600 stores across 29 countries. What can we learn from how they trade? Philip Bier heads Tiger’s business in the south-east of England, and he joined Share Radio to discuss.
