Morning Money: Could moving civil servants out of London turbo-charge devolution?
A thinktank has claimed that moving 25,000 civil servants out of London would turbo charge devolution. Policy Exchange say that a more productive and innovative public sector will only be achieved if the new government ends the outdated Sir Humphrey model of Government and puts local people in control. To explain the concept, Steve Clarke (filling in for Nigel Cassidy) and Louise Cooper were joined by Damian Hind, Economic & Social Policy Research Fellow and author of the new Policy Exchange report, 'Delivering Differently'.

Morning Money: Will the new transatlantic "Privacy Shield" be effective at defending your data?
Discussions surrounding 'Privacy Shield' are ongoing - it's a new transatlantic agreement that will allow data to flow freely between the EU and US, whilst also ensuring that data is properly protected. Companies have waited months for the deal, after its predecessor, the US Safe Harbor Agreement, was struck down by European courts in October 2015. But so far only Microsoft, CA Technologies and Workday have signed up. Joe Aldridge looks into the new agreement by speaking with Peter Church, a Counsel and data privacy expert at law firm Linklaters.
