                Britain's membership of the European Union is the issue that's exercised business minds all week. Ahead of David Cameron's attendance at the first EU leaders summit since the General Election, we discuss the issue with the eurosceptic lobby group Business for Britain. As the UK experiences price deflation for the first time in more than 50 years, we ask why the cost of houses keeps rising. We also speak to one of a growing number of young pub landlords, and we hear a first hand account of the Kent earthquake from Mickey Clarke.

                With inflation falling into negative territory for the first time in more than 50 years, we look at the impact of falling food prices on potato farmers. As regulators prepare to hit some of the world's biggest banks with massive fines for alleged foreign exchange market manipulation, we ask what it means for the industry. And will the nation's rail travellers be facing bus replacement hell next week? Or will the unions and Network Rail find common ground over pay?
