Retailers are saying they expect strong sales over Christmas.
Retailers are saying they expect strong sales over Christmas. New research has found that 60% of outlets say they're more confident about trading this year compared with 2015, with 53% expecting revenues to increase. It's believed the weaker pound will encourage people not to go abroad - and therefore stay and shop - but also encourage the tourist trade. Interestingly fewer retailers are taking part in Black Friday this year - suggesting parts of the industry may be resisting what some see as unwelcome discounting over the festive period. Simon Rose spoke to Ian Gilmartin, Head of Retail & Wholesale at Barclays, who conducted the survey.

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.
