Robert, thank you very much indeed for that. It's tempting if you get a restaurant takeover food delivered to your door not think too much about how it reached you. Whether the delivery person is being treated fairly by a responsible employer. But an ITV News investigation into the Deliveroo company, which now operates in 90 towns and cities, has found some of their bike and scooter riders are not getting the flexible work patterns the company suggests they do, as self-employed contractors. It's lunchtime in Brighton and Kevin has a drop.

"At the direction it's going the exchanges are unsustainable." The former CEO said he believed most of the consumer friendly features of Obamacare such as young individuals staying covered on their parents plan until 26, preventive services, and keeping coverage for those with preexisting conditions would remain in place, regardless of Republican plans to repeal and replace the law. In trying to reform Obamacare, Williams said there needs to be much more competition and flexibility. "I think the practical reality is that when you give people the absolute most comprehensive plans, there is a cost to do that and that shows up in the premium and that's one of the reasons young adults haven't been buying the product because they don't really see the value in it," he said. "I think we do need lower costs, more flexible plans, so we need a range of options as opposed to a one-size-fits-all approach.

They want it to be more flexible to take account of the state of Scotland's economy. Given that the Scottish government wasn't willing to change the domestic rates system, I'm not seeing any rush to reform business rates. Well the additional help for businesses in the northeast has been widely welcomed, as Colin Wight now reports.

And that is good. The gender pay gap reporting systems that are being put in place for companies with over 250 employees is good. But that's not really tackling the root cause of the gender pay gap, which is a lack of good quality flexible working.

Now, the prices of commodities - the stuff mined by these companies including iron ore and coal, have risen, which has helped. Also there's been an increase in demand from China. MPs on a select committee have called the government "inadequate" and "deeply disappointing". The Women and Equalities Committee said the government has failed to act on its recommendations published last March to help bridge the gender pay gap. They want more focus on flexible working and shared parental leave. And YouTube is to scrap those 30-second adverts that are unskippable at the start of videos.

We encourage employers to have career conversations with returning women and ask them about their aspirations and not just assume that they are no longer ambitious. We know that there are some employers that do this and offer flexible solutions which the government is advocating and they do better in the workplace.

But there is no point extending the negotiations and definitely. The British economy will have to change and adapt on the sooner there is certainty to format change, the better. The British economy has shown itself to be sufficiently flexible to adapt to shocks over the last decade and I am in no doubt it can adapt to this one, provided the government pursues a sensible economic policies of sound money and free trade.

Elements of this design are more likely to turn up in the future piecemeal, rather than in whole. It would also fly in the face of comments made by Shuhei Yoshida, Sony Interactive Entertainment Worldwide Studios boss, back in 2015, who stated that the rise of smartphone devices made dedicated handheld consoles a dangerous market to enter. It's worth noting that the PS Vita struggled compared to its predecessor, the PSP, with the two consoles faring dramatically different. The Vita managed just over 15 million sales, while the PSP enjoyed more than 80 million. Even the Vita's direct rival, the Nintendo 3DS, has only managed close to 64 million sales, suggesting a decline for the category overall, and not just Sony's handheld fortunes. But there's change in the air Nintendo is banking on the continued popularity of handheld gaming with its innovative and flexible Switch console.

Naturally, it all comes down to what you want to pay, but the unlimited plans arent as expensive as other Usenet services out there. If you purchase an account, you get access to an online help centre where you can post questions and speak to specialists about the platform. However, many users have complained about the quality of support offered by Astraweb, and some believe that it has declined significantly over the years. Should this be a concern, you could always purchase a block to explore the service before making a final decision.

It also has the advantage of using the whole sensor width for recording video, and of being able to record to the memory card while outputting 4:2:2 footage to a HDMI recorder, but proves itself to be capable for stills shooting too. Autofocus is generally fast and built-in image stabilisation is a huge bonus, while the body is sturdier than its predecessors too. Overall, while it may not be the newest model, its sensor and video specs give it a handful of advantages over its rivals. Read the full review: Sony Alpha A7S II Its hard to know where to start with the GH4. With both DCI 4K and UHD 4K on board, clean 10-bit 4:2:2 output and a huge range of recording formats, not to mention the option to use focus peaking and zebra patterning, and to append time code to footage, its a massively flexible tool for video. You can also extract 8MP frames from recording, but one of the main draws for videographers is the cameras short flange back distance.

Testersnotes: • Technology: Infotainment system is modern but can be a bit fiddly. Items like reverse parking camera are extra – they’re included on the Lexus. • Cabin: Interior feels slightly more cramped than its rival, due to the imposing centre console. • Materials: Cabin has a high-quality finish and is full of leather and colour-coordinated stitching. Verdict First place: Jaguar XE Image 20 of 27 Image 20 of 27 Jaguar’s XE claims yet another road test victory, thanks to its all-round ability. The engine is flexible and economical, while the fun handling isnt spoiled by a hard ride. It’s not the most practical buy and the infotainment system feels dated, but even this doesnt deny the talented Jag. Second place: Lexus IS Image 8 of 27 Image 8 of 27 The Lexus IS is still a leftfield choice in the compact executive class. The quality cabin, relaxed low-speed driving experience and low CO2 will all appeal in their own way, but the IS just can’t beat the Jaguar XE as an all-rounder.
