VIDEO Punchline Talks: Friday Briefing, March 5

The Budget may have  stolen many of the headlines this week, but there has been plenty more for the Punchline-Gloucester.com Friday Business Briefing panel to address.

Each week, editor Mark Owen is joined by a selection of Gloucestershire's leading business figures to run the rule over the headlines which caught their eyes in the papers and on Punchline - and the stories behind them.

  • Nick Broady - Managing director, Avenue Cars and chairman of the Pied Piper Appeal
  • Ruth Dooley - Partner, Hazlewoods
  • Jenny McLoughlin - Finance director, McLoughlin Planning
  • Richard Neale - Director, OPS-BOX

Among the issues discussed this week are changes in the motor industry during the pandemic and the growth of electric car sales, the effect of the rise in the cost of holidays for charities, degrees in The Beatles, Boris Johnson's grocery deliveries from Gloucestershire, the latest on the South West Bypass development and, of course, the Budget.

And they pick out the best stories from another busy week on Punchline.

Subscribe to the Punchline daily newsletter to be among the first to see the weekly Friday briefings.
