UK PM Truss determined to deliver growth plans

British Prime Minister Liz Truss and Finance Minister Kwasi Kwarteng are “determined and resolute” to carry out their economic plans, which have caused market turmoil, junior trade minister Greg Hands said on Friday.

Asked about whether there would be a U-turn on the tax package, Hands said Britain would have to wait until Oct. 31 to hear the medium term budget plan from Kwarteng who on Thursday cut short a trip to Washington.

“I saw the prime Minister yesterday. The prime minister and the chancellor are absolutely determined to deliver on the growth plan,” he told Sky News.
