short speech to the 27 eu leaders head to that no deal option. really, this because anyone who has been is only prepared to talk about you the prime minister's brexit deal he is putting the onus firmly and then they will have noted and i have get your extension provided the vote making the case for a delay to next week, but if it does not pass squarely on the house of commons spoken to police officers on duty third time round, what then? next week. with that vote in the and everybody has said in the last goes through. after all that is what brexit. so it is all smiles. the choice we have now is one couple of weeks there has been a british parliament expected, the you asked us about. they don't want jean—claude juncker waiting in line. of resolving this issue or extreme slight change of atmosphere in that to go to the next level because it austrian chancellor said that he and area and with a week to go unpredictability. hasn't arisen vote yet but they will technically until we legally are the rest of europe hopes that it have that discussion. not and what will happen after that do we resolve this, or do we have brexit paralysis? passes, but went on to warn that no supposed to be leaving, that that short speech is that the prime warnings aside, some minister will then leave the room one wants that no—deal brexit. necessarily without, she will speak here said they felt less safe area particularly where the media while the eu leaders decide whether operates, mps walk across and we to the eu leaders who will have the after the prime minister's have seen it already where it has to grant the uk's request and statement last night. the speaker been a problem, so everybody is opportunity to ask questions but she i hope there will be supporting the discuss other brexit options. then will not sit down at the table and gave his view on parliament week. we'll have the same getting quite tense over this. hostility towards mps. none of you is a traitor. negotiate with them. after they have later on tonight, around six o'clock asked a question she will leave the interest. we want to avoid a no deal absolutely, i think that is a fair ourtime, later on tonight, around six o'clock room and it is up to the 27 leaders our time, there will be a press scenario, so i hope there will be a assessment. if you come down to to discuss amongst themselves they conference with donald tusk and all of you are doing your best. majority in the parliament next westminster on one of the big days, wa nt to week, and i hope that we can... what you will see there are often to discuss amongst themselves they want to do. at this stage it is not jean—claude juncker and possibly mrs this should not be — hundreds of people hanging around about their preferred option, it is may making a statement on that. that and i am sure will not outside parliament and the argument about their preferred option, it is about them holding their nose as prove to be — a matter of any is followed by a working dinner and happens if there isn't? if there is that mps make and that lindsay hoyle well, just like mps and having to do controversy whatsoever. she is unlikely to want an extension actually makes in this letter he in parliament, what is the least if theresa may was no support in parliament, then the sent around to all mps is that is worst option on the table at the to that. there you are, pictures of hoping mps would forget no support in parliament, then the no deal scenario gets more and more fine, we have got no problem at all moment? they don't like the idea of theresa may with the eu leaders, their deep dislike for her brexit realistic, and that's not good for with the idea of constituents or the deal and suddenly see the big a longer extension for some many the uk, but also not good for us in whom she will be addressing about picture, so far, at least, it seems she will be disappointed. the uk, but also not good for us in reasons. prolonging uncertainty for now, in fact, as the leaders meet the european union. the austrian wider public coming in, making their european businesses and citizens, her statement last views felt, but there is clearly a night appeared to be international investors and a uk an attempt at shock tactics but it feeling in parliament that the could have backfired. tension is so high over this issue before that meeting. olly robbins the dup, whose votes with one and a half feet out the are crucial to the prime minister, have said they won't be chancellor. i should correct what i

27 years behind bars. people on her own side and the dup the judge said 16 year and labour to get behind it and the old aaron campbell was a cold statement last night. and calculated individual who had fa ct and labour to get behind it and the fact she seems to have alienating shown ‘not a flicker many of them as a problem. it is of remorse' during the trial. the speaker gave his view lorna gordon was at the high on hostility towards mps. also a probably because lots of mps court in glasgow — none of you is a traitor. you may find some of the details and her party voted for the deal last time thinking that was the way in her report upsetting. six—year—old alesha macphail, to make sure the uk leaves the eu described as a beautiful, all of you are doing your best. kind and smart girl. and time at the end of the month but this should not be — and i am sure will not her family said they'd at no does not mean that, they are been left devastated prove to be — a matter of any and heartbroken by her murder. actually voting for a delay albeit a controversy whatsoever. her killer, aaron campbell, today short one and that could be what is if theresa may was hoping mps would forget admitted he carried out the crimes. putting them. this is of her own their deep dislike for her brexit throughout, he has shown no remorse. deal and suddenly see the big picture, so far, at least, mps. thejudge, lord matthews, i think there's a number of us it seems she will be disappointed. who moved our position last week to gave details of what campbell said happened the night he abducted her statement last vote for the deal who are now saying night appeared to be the little girl from her bed an attempt at shock tactics but it everything is back on the table. in the family home. could have backfired. the situation has changed, the prime minister has the dup, whose votes you said that alesha was drowsy asked for a delay. are crucial to the prime and became a bit more awake minister, have said they won‘t be many of us do not want when you went outside. the delay, we want at one point, she asked who you were and where you were going. threatened into supporting her deal. to keep our word to the british you said you were a friend people and leave on the 29th of march and a delay is unacceptable of her father's, and that he let‘s go to westminster now, where we can speak so i vote for the deal was taking her home. to our chief political is interpreted as a vote for the delay i expect over the next few days, correspondent, vicki young. there will be many of us will seriously consider opposition. you were totally unconcerned, theresa may has a tough gig in

not good news for the prime minister other than to be mildly amused that the police had brussels. that is an extension to not arrested you. and the other thing everyone is that meeting she won‘t want. the court also heard distressing brussels. that is an extension to trying to work out here is what that meeting she won't want.” brussels. that is an extension to that meeting she won't want. i think she has a problem here because the details of campbell's mindset. theresa may herself thinks about that when he saw alesha numbers are not coming over to her that prospect of leaving without a in her bed that night, side for her deal. and in fact, it he saw a moment of opportunity. deal next friday. ministers do not seems that some are moving back the in the background reports, know, had cabinets doesn't know, mps other way. some have changed their campbell said, during the trial, do not know and so next week gross it had taken everything mind between the first vote in the to stop himself laughing. second, and now they are saying you once again an attempt by mps to alesha's family said that when their little their vote is not guaranteed if it girl's future was taken, comes back again. that is partly seize control of the agenda. the one because when they voted last time so was theirs. thing that has to happen on monday a statement was read round, it meant they could get as emotion has to go down from the on her mother's behalf. brexit on the 29th of march, the uk in the macphail family would be leaving as planned at that government, i think rosie another and georgina's family, it is not a 27—year sentence, moment. of course, if they were to attempt by people like yvette cooper and tony ben to put down a move to it is a life sentence. vote for it sometime next week, they they will never, ever, know that that will automatically try and have these votes on all the ever be the same again. bring a delay to brexit, and some of campbell will serve a minimum them simply aren‘t willing to do other option is to show there is something that parliament is in of 27 years in jail. favour of time is very short, the that. then factor in the anger from the judge warned that he viewed campbell's possible rehabilitation and reintegration back idea of doing that legally is now into society as remote. lorna gordon, bbc news some last night, feeling that impossible and at the end of all of theresa may added to the hostility that of parliament says we have all at the high court in glasgow. being directed to mp5, some of whom come to the conclusion that we do have talked about getting death not want no deal, we want a long new zealand is to ban all military threats. they think she hasn‘t extension and delay, are the able to style semi—automatic helped and the debate has been more weapons and assault rifles polarised than it was before. after last week's gun order and mandate and tell the prime attacks in christchurch meetings have been going on between
2:25 pm
which left fifty people dead. minister to go to brussels again to the prime minister, jacinda ardern, mps, including opposition party mps, said new zealand's history ask for a long delay to brexit even has changed forever, though she has said very clearly and now its laws would too. that she will not do it, it is not naomi grimley reports and david liddington, the de facto deputy prime minister. he has been what she wants. we had any situation hosting them in whitehall today, where as ever no including anna soubry and chuka what she wants. we had any situation where as ever no one what she wants. we had any situation where as ever no one really knows another day of mass funerals what is going on and how it is going at a cemetery in christchurch. to work for deal does not or these graves are a physical through. staying in westminster,, we and poignant reminder of the toll umunna, from the independent grouping. this is what he said when of last week's attack. he came out of the meeting. yet the can speak to a policy analyst and but as the grieving continues, the political spotlight has shifted talks were constructive, but we will starkly to the country's see what that means when the house director of occasions for people gun control laws. reconvenes next week. we did put it votes uk. where do you think we are new zealand's prime minister very forcefully to david liddington has lost no time in the need for a change in approach announcing decisive reforms. and a change in tone, particularly the theresa may spoke last night, as on the part of the prime minister. new zealand will ban all military stop trying to set people up against there a change in the mood as to very ahead? i think the speech did style semi—automatic weapons. each other. do yourjob and try to we will also ban all assault rifles. bring us together to come to a consensus view. and to show backfire somewhat, everything will be adding this process she is still we will ban all very keen to put her deal to leadership? and to show leadership. parliament again and whilst she had high—capacity magazines. i think there has been an acknowledgement of the fury with it's a sign of the times that which the tone, never mind the a more narrow defeat the second time opposition to this ban is scarce. substance of the prime minister's it was still substantial. she still new zealand has tried and failed has to when what a lot of to reform its gun laws remarked, was greeted. in terms of a
2:26 pm
several times in the past. way forward, i think the impression eurosceptic conservative this time though the political class backbenchers and the dup. i think we have been given is that the they are probably the key piece of seems to accept it's different. government accepts that if there they are probably the key piece of the puzzle. if you can win them over isn't an agreement, a consensus, we have a duty to respond their other mps may start to fall in to violence with non—violence, line, however they have not yet said forming behind the prime minister's they will support the deal. even in and i think that you will see deal, they will have to look at some parliament act decisively on this that circumstance the chances are form of process where the in the very short future. the prime minister dusted the government, where parliament, the backing of not an insignificant an amnesty is now in place house of commons, can reach a number of liberal mps to pass this majority view. talking about what so the owners of affected on hotly we saw with a stick flashlight is that she has weapons can hand them in. would happen if theresa may‘s deal alienating some of them. some said the government has even laid is not back next week. what is aside funds to buy back extraordinary is that even her own ministers don‘t know what her plan b weapons so that owners they will actively looking for ways to support the deal and after the are to some degree compensated. would be, whether she would be willing to go through with no deal parliament aims to have the reforms statement last night said the scenario, or whether, as has been premise that does not deserve a not on the statute book by mid april. said by david liddington and others, get the support she needs to pass they would allow a process by which hopefully nothing like this would happen again and i hope parliament could show what it might this. tom, you are nodding your the gun laws will stop it actually be in favour of. from happening again. head. a big march at the weekend, the consequences of what we've seen is terrible and thank you. are things moving any you would something must change. new zealand has never had the same wish? i think so. it is notjust the attachment to guns as america. also in westminster the speed of these laws is frances o‘grady, general secretary of comes in stark relief the trades union congress. parliament does not want this broken brexit deal but not as the country. to the reaction to tragedies there, you, the tuc and the cbi have all the polls say very few people as the us gun lobby written to theresa may. while she is
2:27 pm
has resisted reforms wa nt blaming mps for where we are, you all the polls say very few people want this deal so when theresa may from successive administrations. is trying to play parliament against naomi grimley, bbc news. are blaming her. i think the tuc and the people, what you're going to see the cbi are saying clearly that her deal isn‘t going forward. that she on saturday is not just the people, what you're going to see adam bienkov is politics editor on saturday is notjust many the people, what you're going to see on saturday is not just many mps marching to give the public the of business insider uk needs a plan b. but we are also very and he's at westminster. final say but also hundreds of clear that nobody wants no deal. thousands of people and a flag wants that would be a disaster forjobs to open her cousins in downing looking at the front page of and investment in this country, by street she will see all the people walking past. if theresa may is business and say that and you're the government‘s own admission. so looking at the comments from she needs to focus on allowing a emmanuel macron that a few hoping this is focusing everybody‘s politicians vote against theresa process , she needs to focus on allowing a process, like indicative votes, to may's deal that enters a no deal. he mind because as she has done all come up with an alternative. and we along said it is my deal or no deal, also agree that the clear priority is very clear that if mps again next should be about people‘s jobs, is there a sense that actually she could lose control of the whole week. theresa may's brexiteer within process she was this vote? the a looks like we're heading for a no people‘s livelihoods, their communities, and i think it is time brexit. he didn't roll out a difficulty as we are not sure what that the prime minister started listening. we would be keen to meet the other option is. everything back long—term extension but said would herjointly to set out require significant political change listening. we would be keen to meet her jointly to set out the views listening. we would be keen to meet herjointly to set out the views of both business and the unions, but we are very clear that the prime on the part of britain and so far everything back to what donald tusk parliament has shown wattel side of said what happens next, as there and minister has to take responsibility for the mess that we are in and find that. prospects of a no—deal brexit a way to clear it up. but you agree
2:28 pm
it no deal on extension question look significantly increased. people mark prime minister has tried to use that an extension is required, because frankly, we are out of time? this ambiguity to her advantage in are calling for the revoking of order to ensure labour mps can back it is clear we do need an extension the deal if they are afraid of what article 50, staying in the eu, on on time. we are eight days away from we are facing is a no deal and our current terms, it has had more eurosceptics they are what we are the deadline. but i also think that than1 million our current terms, it has had more facing is a long extension adds no than 1 million signatures. the deadline. but i also think that the prime minister didn‘t answer the our current terms, it has had more than1 million signatures. it keeps crashing because many people are brexit. that question will need to be answered very soon. if the deal trying to sign it, is that a sense question — what was she bringing in the business community that whatever theresa may does next week that was new to the table? what is voted down next week prime minister has said mps would have the would justify an extension of time? or nothing? there is a joint chance to decide what happens next. do they force our hand and asked to it is clear that, frankly, her deal statement today from the tuc and the go back for a long extension and has now gone down to very heavy indeed with the eu be bound to grant historic defeats. from the world of that? that cause problems for them cbi saying that theresa may needs to in terms of their european parliamentary calendar. it goes to change course. there is a growing work, we have good practical advice alarm on all sides of the divide about the kind of deal we need in here that we are heading dangerously terms of customs, the single market, the fundamental problem about brexit close to a no—deal brexit and i and why theresa may has had such think business want some kind of in terms of workers‘ rights and investment. the kind of deal we need trouble getting a deal through. certainty, they have not seen that there is no version of brexit that from the government so far and that will work for everyone in this meets all the promises that are made believe something is to change quite country. reading the letter, you say soon. in 2016, no version that doesn't leave people poorer onset of this believe something is to change quite soon. business has been seeing that that firms in communities across the for two years. uk are not ready for the outcome of soon. business has been seeing that for two yea rs. we soon. business has been seeing that for two years. we are now a week issue for years to come. that is why away. absolutely. there has long ano uk are not ready for the outcome of a no deal. is that true? one sort of i think parramatta is having such a
2:29 pm
been an assumption in the uk that difficulty in finding a formal hopes, with the notice we‘ve had, somehow i no—deal brexit would be brexit and can agree on. the that some companies are ready for avoided. we cannot longer presume argument is not an option in the this. i think the cbi has done its mist of this crisis, it is a that will be the case, there is own research, as has government. clearly no majority volleyed theresa grown—up solution to this crisis because brexit has turned out to be may's deal and if anything this clearly, some big businesses feel so seems to be mps moving away from it because brexit has turned out to be so different and disastrous compared that they are ready, but there are a to what was promised, it is only right and reasonable to hand it back following her speech yesterday. some lot of small and medium—sized to the people. you are going to hear businesses that simply aren‘t. this conservative mps saying we are heading for the delayed brexit that is real stuff. i mean, we have that i echoing on saturday, we are the longer want to back her deal. it already seen what is happening at does not seem like those voices from honda, at bmw, at nissan.” business are being listened to and going to have a historic well timed does not seem like it is having a already seen what is happening at honda, at bmw, at nissan. i need to pick you up on that. they said major effect on the voting decisions march to let people back into this by mps in parliament. is there a debate. you mention that couldn't be brexit wasn‘t necessarily an reason sense that business is not wanting a for those decisions. —— mike a a better time, there isn't any time. at the moment we are leaving the eu no—deal brexit is in some way prepared for it? has worked into reason. we need to be careful where next friday and that is where she we point the finger, don‘t because that? a lot of businesses have my we need to be clear that brexit doesn't get this deal through and was a factor, and it is not helping. you are saying she wants.” worked on relocation plans, millions has been spent but i don't think we doesn't get this deal through and when you have business and you are saying she wants. i hope she doesn't because there is time then manufacturing under pressure, it should be under any illusion that doesn‘t help to have this for calm and rational people on all the community is ready for no deal sides and you look and in britain to uncertainty, to keep flogging the dead horse of this made‘s deal. say let's take the offer of a long but what the community wants above instead, we need to come up with a
2:30 pm
extension which is clearly there, plan b. we believe and understand europe is clearly ready to offer a and beyond is certainty. if you're that our consensus could be built long extension, to use that time to heading for no—deal brexit, let's knew about it now and have some time work out what brexit means. to add a across parties for a sensible deal have years of fixed debate, we to prepare for that because as that would protect jobs things stand we have no idea, a week across parties for a sensible deal that would protectjobs and livelihoods. i think mrs may, haven't really wanted what it means to go and we could potentially drop and that progressive majority in the whatever the effort she has made so house of commons is abstract, and out and be still don't know what the far, it is clearly not working. it‘s never comes together for a specific government's planners to deal with formal brexit. it works out what it that. we know who theresa may is no good blaming her own mps for not wants to do that is when we could doing what she tells them to do. she put it to the people and settle this needs to find a way forward that can issue once and for all which is what blaming, who had businesses pointing the finger at? it is certainly the everybody wants. thank you. now we command a majority in the house. i‘m afraid the political reality of that is that simply tacking ever further case that theresa may blamed mps, to her own european research group some polling today suggests the will look at the weather. you ask me public largely blames the government won‘t give her the numbers. she and if there was a no—deal brexit what it is like in california!” needs to start reaching out across think they can tell us. the tweets the house. that number would increase greatly. have been piling in. it is a bloom? that is something similarly will do you have any sympathy for her? find amongst businesses, a lot of many people saying she has had an impossiblejob, it they have called this a super bloom. many people saying she has had an impossible job, it was a poison frustration among them that the chalice and she has at least stuck this is in southern california, a prime minister and government and the bee listening to their concerns, to her guns. i think anybody who place to live like a late inland speaking out regularly and largely goes for an elected leadership position knows it is never going to from los angeles. typically every been falling on deaf years. the fear bea

2:37 pm
completed a 3—0 whitewash over sri lanka in their one day series. the hosts could only manage 174 all out after winning the toss in katunayake. england knocked off the runs with 8 wickets and over 23 overs to spare. amyjones and tammy beaumont both made half centuries the way we started the leg of this tour, when we got the opportunity to beat a team comprehensively, we want to ta ke beat a team comprehensively, we want to take it and do it ruthlessly and a tan that is my chance for the better to get around, so really pleased with today. points at stake as well, so it was not a dead game in any sense of the term. i think we are up to second in the table, so a nice position to be in and leads nicely into the t20 leg of the tour. the ibf world featherweight champion josh warrington says boxers caught doping should receive life bans from the sport. warrington will defend his title against his fellow yorkshireman kid galahad later this year in leeds. galahad was given a backdated two—year doping ban in 2016 that was later cut by six months. he maintains he tested positive two years earlier because his nutritional supplement had been spiked.
2:38 pm
it isa it is a disgrace, to be fair, and, you know, winning and losing, all of that goes out of the window. they should be no place for it and if you get found, then you should be banned. do it should be a life ban? 100%. a quick update from kazakhstan. they are still winning 2-0. thank you very much. satellite photos have shown the scale of the flooding caused by cyclone idai in mozambique, a vast inland sea of over 1000 square miles. hundreds of people have died in the country and the authorities there say 15,000 people are in urgent need of rescue. more have died in neighbouring zimbabwe and malawi, and across the region millions have been left homeless. from mozambique, anne soy reports. lucky to be alive, but growing desperate by the day. these people may have survived the worst storm ever seen here,
2:39 pm
but now, they have nothing to eat and nowhere to shelter. cyclone idai swept away almost everything on its path. it created small islands where a city once stood, trapping those who survived it. nearly a week later, relief has started trickling in. south africa has sent its military helicopters to deliver aid. international organisations are also planning more. the uk has sent emergency shelter kits and family tents and more aid is on the way. the british government has set aside £18 million for the relief effort. and here, in the capital, a huge aid operation is getting under way. i have seen individuals and companies arriving here with foodstuffs and other basic supplies, coming to donate to people who have been affected by the cyclone. i am told that so many volunteers turned up here today that some of them had to be turned away.
2:40 pm
the supplies will be shipped to the affected region, but there are challenges ahead. across the border in zimbabwe, some relief, as more people are rescued. thousands need help to get out. the injured and the vulnerable are given priority. tough choices that rescuers have to make with their limited means. the true scale of this disaster is not yet known. there are fears of worse times ahead as heavy rains continue to pound the affected area. rivers upstream could burst their banks, causing more destruction. the conditions here also put money at risk of contracting diseases. they sing thousands have lost everything,
2:41 pm
but they are making do with what they can as they wait for more help to arrive. anne soy, bbc news, maputo. let's speak now to daniel timme, who works for unicef in mozambique and joins us from the capital maputo. as we were hearing, there are still people that need rescuing. as you have seen in your video, many people are still awaiting to be rescued. hundreds of thousands of children are in need of shelter and in need of food and in need of clean drinking water and at unicef we are particularly worried about this high number of children in the situation at the moment. it's the aid going to be available orare it's the aid going to be available or are you it's the aid going to be available orare you in it's the aid going to be available or are you in need of much more international help you are getting at the moment? the aid operation has started slowly
2:42 pm
for several reasons, because the city and surrounding region was cut off via two days, from our communications, but also geographically, the roads are blocked, and everything needs to be brought in by air. and also by boat. that is a big logistical challenge and we are working on that. but we have started to distribute the most urgent goods and as people are streaming into these temporary shelters, we are distributing them with the food, with drinking water, which is very important because there is the danger of life diseases. this is a race against time because with so many people desperate for
2:43 pm
food and water, there real at huge risk of that, aren't they? can you still hear me? i hear you back. i can you still hear me? i hearyou back. i did can you still hear me? i hear you back. i did not hear your question, but i suppose wanted to know more about the rescue operation, can you repeat? it was about the risk of disease, which is something that you are going to worry about more and more. yes, of course we are prepared for the worst—case to respond to cholera outbreaks and the like, but the most important for us is to prevent these things and at unicef we are responsible to provide safe drinking water and our water sanitation people are working on that for the immediate needs, we are distributing water purification pills because
2:44 pm
especially children are extremely vulnerable now and can get diarrhoea and that can easily be life threatening and we want to save life, it is a race against time now. we wish you well with your work. thank you very much forjoining us. susannah is here — in a moment she will have the latest business news. first a look at the headlines on afternoon live. theresa may meets with eu leaders in brussels to ask for a short extention to article 50. in westminster there is anger as mps react to the prime minister's tv address in which she blamed them for the brexit delay. a judge has sentenced a teenager to life in prison for the murder of six—year—old alesha macphail. here's your business headlines on afternoon live. the bank of england has kept interest rates on hold amid continued uncertainty over brexit. all nine members of the bank's monetary policy committee voted to keep rates at 0.75%,
2:45 pm
where they have been since august last year. retail sales rose in february are up by 0.4% on the previous month, official figures show. despite that positive news the high street is still facing challenges. ted baker's profit has fallen by 26% to just under £51 million. manufacturing body make uk says manufacturers were more concerned than ever about a no—deal brexit and that it should be avoided under any circumstances. they added 70% of manufacturers have already put decisions on hold and had been building inventory. what is going on? retail sales rose unexpectedly. there was an unseasonal weather, it was very warm as you remember, so that could be partly to blame. it is the strongest in the three months to february, the strongest in over two
2:46 pm
yea rs, february, the strongest in over two years, 3.7%, and that was the annualised rate. fashion chain next and ted baker still facing problems. although it has online sales that are robust, sales fell in star, and ted baker, its profits were down by 26%, so there are still real issues facing the high street. there is also a story out today about attacks in star. increased in tax on staff. this has come from the british retail consortium. they say every day, on average, 115 retail employees are attacked every day last year. that is pretty staggering, isn't it? the very fact it is costing retailers around £1.9 billion i'm trying to tackle that sort of crime. let's talk to anusha couttigane,
2:47 pm
an analyst at kantar consulting. talking about attacks on retail staff. that is very dangerous, having to put all these infrastructure, camera, security guards and the high street. yes, it is really concerning finding. ithink yes, it is really concerning finding. i think one of the problems with this is the violent crime we are seeing in the retail industry. we have clients coming to us citing problems with cyber car security and fraud, but it is violent crime that has a direct impact on staff on the front line. i started has a direct impact on staff on the front line. istarted my has a direct impact on staff on the front line. i started my career as a student on these shop floor and i think that is really telling because in the retail industry, a shop floor staff demographic is a really composed of quite young people usually, it is casual work, it a tt ra cts usually, it is casual work, it attracts people who need flexible working hours and i think it is really concerning that that particular demographic, younger workers, are potentially young pa rents, workers, are potentially young parents, and particularly subject to these attacks because of the
2:48 pm
environment they are in. let's move on to the news that we have had about retail sales being unexpectedly stronger than saad in february. why do you think that is? do you think it was the seasonal weather or do you think it could be consumers are feeling more confident? i think that consumers are feeling more confident. we have spoken about uncertainty in our industry and the fertility, but i think in the uk, i think we could continue with that. the one weather helped because that gets people out of their homes and under the high street and we always see a lift in retail performance when the weather is good. let's focus on ted baker. it has been through a number of issues, not least is the founder being investigated. what is happening with sales ? investigated. what is happening with sales? do you think that investigation has had an impact i do you think it is simply tough for that retailer at the moment?
2:49 pm
i think that retailer at the moment? ithink in that retailer at the moment? i think in the case of ted baker that the brand is insulated a little bit from what is going on in the background partly because the name of the brand is not sound as with the name of the founder, so it has a little bit of a buffer between the star is going on and what consumers are interactive with. ted baker is operating in a very competitive environment. one of the challenges it has faced is on the international pa rt it has faced is on the international part of the business, ted bag it is a —— ted baker is expanding quickly and it is a little bit experimental and it is a little bit experimental and it is struggling to get it right in some territories. some of the markets it has gone into like india and south korea are the middle east, thoseis and south korea are the middle east, those is a market that can be telling to engage with because you have to work with local partners are local distributors and selecting the right partners in those territories is really critical to success with the newmarket entries. and ted baker
2:50 pm
has not always got that farm in the right so we have seen over the last year that they have had to change who it is working with our has had to close stores where it hasn't delivered. that is one thing that ted baker is struggling to get right. briefly, it has been said that it is not necessarily that he has too many stars, just that the rents and rates are too high. do you think they need to be changed? this is a negotiation that retailers are struggling with as well. in the case of next, they have been able to negotiate some discounted rates with a number of its landlords. next is a business well—positioned to move towards online and it is changing its business model, evolving from what was a b to c model, interacting with allowing third—party brands to reach consumers through its network.
2:51 pm
having that physical footprint is important because it gives it differentiation against other players who provide that platform for third party brands to access. thank you very much. the ftse100 is staying in positive territory after the bank of england kept interest rates on hold, citing however it was really guidance from the us central bank that set the tone for markets today. that has lifted miners, gold, in particularly at a three—week high. the philosopher and crossbench life peer baroness mary warnock has died aged 94. she chaired a number of inquiries to inform government policy, which included a report which led to the setting up of the human fertilisation and embryology authority in 1991 to govern ivf treatment. she also authored a landmark report on children with special educational needs and disabilities.
2:52 pm
we're joined now by professor allan pacey, who is a professor of andrology at the university of sheffield. fairto fair to say, she was a massive influence on you and your career? ata influence on you and your career? at a very personal level, yes, i can remember as an undergraduate, i was probably 19 years old, sitting in the university library and i read in the university library and i read in the space of one afternoon this report that she published. my goodness, it changed my life. this was the business i wanted to bn and for that i will be ever thankful to her. on the face of it that would be a fairly dry thing to read, but what was it that she did that brought the subject to so many people? it sounds like a dry thing to read, but as a philosopher, she really ca ptu red but as a philosopher, she really captured the spirit of what the tension around ivf was about, she will was able to neutrally chair the committee and take information from
2:53 pm
the opposing sides. it is a good read still. i went through that part with my students only a few years ago and they themselves are now 18, 19,20 ago and they themselves are now 18, 19, 20 years ago and they themselves are now 18, 19,20 years old, ago and they themselves are now 18, 19, 20 years old, were amazed at the quality of the writing, the quality of the debate and how current some of the debate and how current some of the debate and how current some of the things she said still wear. it is interesting because we take ivf are granted in many ways now. back then, it really wasn't. there was clearly issues there, people were concerned about the slippery slope, concerned about designer babies. they were concerned about eggs, donations, sperm donation, and there was an emphasis on the report about surrogacy, people were concerned about the possibility of selling the womb to create children for couples that couldn't have children of their own without using a third party. and i think they were obvious and serious
2:54 pm
concerns, but what she was really able to do was kind of present a way through that but i think no other person at the time and no other person at the time and no other person since could have done. looking at twitter, so many describing her as inspirational, but the other word that comes across is own assuming. if you ever met her, and i met her on very few occasions, but she was a very charming individual, very friendly and approachable. but sitting in the audience of a conference and listening to her speak, you saw the remarkable brain and approach she had and she was a remarkable person to be around and witness speaking. and you would not be doing what you are doing without her. iam very are doing without her. i am very grateful to her. thank you very much for your time. we will be live in brussels. but now the weather from ben we will be live in brussels. but now the weatherfrom ben rich. good afternoon. the big challenge in getting
2:55 pm
the forecast right at the moment is in determining where the cloud will break. for many today it has been pretty grey. for others we have seen blue sky and sunshine. the satellite picture shows there has been a lot of cloud. some breaks across the north of scotland, eastern england. some for a time across parts of the midlands and east anglia. generally through the rest of the afternoon we will tend to keep a lot of cloud and drizzle. this evening and tonight a predominately cloudy night. misty and murky, damp and drizzly. this rain band approaches the far north—west. temperatures overnight around eight to 10 degrees. ahead of this rain band we will see a squeeze of brisk winds in northern ireland, north—west england, north wales gusts up to 60mph. as we go through tomorrow we will see these outbreaks of rain staggering south eastwards across scotland and northern ireland with strong and gusty winds. further south, a predominately cloudy day. drizzle across northern
2:56 pm
and western areas. further south and east maybe some glimmers of brightness and still mild for many. something colder in the north—west. that will spread across more parts of the uk as we go into saturday. not much rain left on this frontal system but still dangling across parts of southern england on saturday. there could be a legacy of cloud to start the weekend. elsewhere, spells of sunshine. the chance of wintry showers in northern scotland. they could be wintry to lower levels. quite breezy. for all of us it will feel quite a bit cooler. as we keep that cool air in place on saturday night, away from some windy weather in northern scotland, we are likely to see a touch of frost taking us into sunday morning. a chilly start to the day. for many across england and wales it will be fine and dry. some spells of sunshine. for northern ireland and the far north of england, outbreaks of rain followed by showers, some of which could be wintry.
2:57 pm
