Tory Leadership LIVE: Badge of honour! Liz Truss hailed for earning ire of Putin's puppet

A Tory MP backing Rishi Sunak said Liz Truss is making comments she cannot keep on tax cuts.


Education Select Committee chairman Robert Halfon said of Mr Sunak on Sky News: “He’s being responsible about the economy, not making promises that he can’t keep. We’ve got to cut inflation and cut the debt, then we can cut the cost of living and cut taxes in the future…

“You can’t just have unfunded tax cuts because you have to deal with the debt. We have to spend money on the public services, whether it be the NHS, education and many other areas in public life and if we’re again to have a proper education service that needs to be properly resourced.

“If you just have unfunded tax cuts, where is that money going to be for vital public services?”

Mr Halfon also said: “You can’t just wish (inflation) away…

“When it counts (Mr Sunak) cuts the cost of living but is doing so responsibly”.
