From Nine To Noon, 9:45 am on 1 February 2024

UK correspondent Matthew Parris joins Kathryn to talk about a new deal that aims to smooth post-Brexit trade between Great Britain and Northern Ireland, warnings from Chancellor Jeremy Hunt that tax cuts later in the year will likely be smaller than expected because of the state of the economy and a nation's surprise at Prime Minister Rishi Sunak's extreme diet.

Britain's Prime Minister Rishi Sunak speaks with students' parents during a visit at the Haughton Academy in Darlington, north east England, on January 29, 2024 to outline plans for the banning of single use vapes. The UK will introduce legislation to ban disposable e-cigarettes in order to tackle a rise in youth vaping, announced Britain's Prime Minister Rishi Sunak on January 29, 2024 during a visit to a school in Darlington. Health experts welcomed the proposal, with Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty saying the legislation would have "a major public health impact across many future generations".
