Whilst I am not responsible for that particular programme, or the changes being made by BBC Current Affairs, I understand there's no intention to reduce the impact or volume of the Money Programme despite some of the reporting.
What is also true is that there has never been a higher level of commitment or dedication to business and economics coverage on BBC News. My department produces 11 hours of broadcast business output every single weekday across various BBC outlets and channels, as well as a constantly updated website for UK and global business news.
We have teams of business journalists based in the US, Asia, India and the Middle East who contribute to our domestic and international coverage. In October we are re-launching Working Lunch, our daily business and finance programme on BBC2, with a new format and extra audience interactivity. It's a project which we are incredibly excited about and which we know will meet a real desire from the audience to know more about the economy and what affects the pound in our pockets.
In addition, our team of specialists including Business Editor Robert Peston and Economics Editor Hugh Pym continue to provide exclusive stories and strong analysis. Robert's current series of 30 minute interviews with top CEO's called Leading Questions has been a real investment in serious business news for BBC News.
Next week we have a fantastic and ambitious project launching which I'll be blogging about on Monday. There's never been a more importan time to tell the economic story and it's something we are very focused on.
