Truss sticks to tax cut plan, adds situation very serious
British Prime Minister Liz Truss (pictured) stated Thursday that she will stick to her strategy while recognizing that the situation in the UK is grave.
"We had to take urgent action to get our economy growing, get Britain moving, and also deal with inflation, and of course, that means taking controversial and difficult decisions," she told BBC. "But I'm prepared to do that as prime minister because what's important to me is that we get our economy moving."
Besides, the primer minister said in the afternoon on her Twitter account that the country should pursue a long-term growth trajectory while "maintaining fiscal discipline." "Cutting taxes will boost investment, creating jobs and opportunities for all," she added on the social network.
