    Liz Truss standing by chancellor – No 10

    My colleague, political editor Pippa Crerar, has a brief update from a No 10 spokesman, who tells her Truss is standing by Kwasi Kwarteng.

    No 10 tells me that Liz Truss is standing by Kwasi Kwarteng despite pressure on him to quit.

    A spokesman said: "The PM and the Chancellor are working on the supply side reforms needed to grow the economy which will be announced in the coming weeks".

    They didn’t please all of our movement all of the time, including me.

    n

    But those Labour governments made history.

    n

    The NHS.

    n

    Social security.

    n

    The welfare state.

    n

    Council housing.

    n

    Modern higher education.

    n

    The Open University.

    n

    Decriminalising homosexuality.

    n

    Outlawing racial discrimination.

    n

    Introducing equal pay.

    n

    The national minimum wage.

    n

    Sure Start.

    n

    The Good Friday agreement.

    n

    Civil partnerships.

    n

    The Equality Act.

    n

    The Human Rights Act.

    n

    The world’s first Climate Change Act.

    n

    In her speech to the Labour conference Bridget Phillipson, the shadow education secretary, pointed out that the UK government had got through five education secretaries within a year. Gavin Williamson was sacked in the reshuffle on 15 September 2021. He was replaced by Nadhim Zahawi, who was replaced by Michelle Donelan when Zahawi got promoted after Rishi Sunak resigned. Donelan quit within two days, joining the exodus of ministers from Boris Johnson’s government, and she was replaced by James Cleverly on an interim basis before Kit Malthouse got the job properly when Liz Truss formed her government. He was appointed on 6 September.

    n

    Education, under this government is like a school maths problem.

    n

    If you have five education secretaries in one year.

    n

    Three of them, who haven’t got a clue what they are doing.

    n

    Two of them, who want a return to the fifties.

    n

    What have you got left?

    n

    I’ll tell you.

    n

    A government that is failing our children.

    n

    Childcare in crisis.

    n

    A recovery programme in chaos.

    n

    School buildings collapsing.

    n

    A skills system unfit for today, never mind tomorrow.

    n

    Universities treated as a political battleground, not a public good.

    Wes Streeting, the shadow health secretary, told the Labour conference in his speech this morning that the party would have a 10-year plan for NHS modernisation that would include expanding the workforce, having higher standards for patients and shifting “the focus of healthcare out of the hospital and into the community”.

    Without a workforce plan, the Conservatives have no plan for the NHS.

    n

    Everything else they announce is a sticking plaster that fails to address the root cause of the NHS crisis.

    n

    Politics is about choices. Labour believes the country needs doctors and nurses more than the richest need a tax cut.

    n

    n

    When we were in government, Labour guaranteed appointments within two days.

    n

    Labour will give all patients the ability to book online, the opportunity to self-refer to specialist services where appropriate and a wider range of choice so that we can choose whether we want to see someone face-to-face, on the phone or via a video link.

    n

    The days of waiting on the phone at 8am to book an appointment with your GP will be over and we will bring back the family doctor.

    Here are the main points from Keir Starmer’s morning interview round.

    • Starmer suggested the government should urgently shelve elements of its mini-budget from last Friday in the light of the impact it is having on borrowing costs, and the criticism of it from the IMF. (See 7.36am.) The IMF intervention will be a particular boon for Labour members because when the 1976 Callaghan government had to go “cap in hand to the IMF” for a loan in 1976, that became emblematic of Labour financial incompetence (unfairly, some argue) and that charge severely damaged the party’s reputation for a generation. Liz Truss seems unlikely to take Starmer’s advice, and perform a U-turn, even though that could potentially solve the sterling crisis. Starmer probably realises that having the opposition call for a U-turn makes it, politically, even harder for the government to perform one.

    This is a situation where the government has self-inflicted harm on our economy. And people looking at their mortgages, looking at their prices this morning, will be worried sick, I think. I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re not a little bit angry that the government has lost control of the economy.

    Speaking on LBC, he said he spoke to his sister, who is a care worker, last night and she was “really struggling” with bills. He said:

    She’s a care worker. She’s really struggling. She’s just got her bill in, in her case her energy bill, and she’s really struggling. She’s got just a small amount of money left in the bank and she’s in a high state of anxiety. And that’s just an example of what it’s like for many, many people, whether it’s the mortgage, whether it’s prices.

    • He signalled Labour would expect the rich to pay more in tax – although he claimed it was “not really” right to call this a wealth tax. On LBC Nick Ferrari asked if he would ever look at a wealth tax and Starmer, who is normally a very fluent interviewee, hesitated and stuttered briefly as he started to reply. Starmer said:

    We are looking at how we tax fairly. On wealth, I’m looking at whether and how we tax all different forms of income. Some people obviously earn their income through a wage. Other people earn it through stocks and shares and dividends, and we’re looking at what is a fair way to tax all income, wherever it comes from.

    No, it’s not really a wealth tax. It’s looking at different forms of income. It’s stocks and shares and dividends.

    Labour has already committed to re-introducing the 45% top rate of income tax, which the Tories are abolishing. But Starmer is hinting the wealthy might pay more in tax under Labour in other ways too.

    • He said that what Rupa Huq said about Kwasi Kwarteng being “superficially” black was “racist”. But he refused to say she should be thrown out of the party, saying that she was now subject to a disciplinary process that needed to proceed independently.

    • He said that Labour’s plans to generate all electricity from green sources by 2030 would require changes to planning laws. When it was put to him on Radio 5 Live that Labour would not be able to put up enough wind turbines in time under current planning laws, he replied: “Yeah, we’re going to have to change planning regulations.”

    • He was unable to say exactly how Labour would fund the cut in the basic rate of income tax to 19%. Labour has said it will match the cut, which the Tories are funding through borrowing. Labour is opposed to unfunded tax cuts. Starmer said the party was still committed to its fiscal rules, which rule out unfunded tax cuts, but Starmer said an incoming Labour administration “will inherit the government’s arrangements”. It would get to the point where it could meet its fiscal rules “as quickly as we can”, he said.

    Good morning. Keir Starmer’s speech to Labour delegates was widely praised yesterday, but he must be the first opposition leader in many years whose conference speech has, in effect, received an endorsement from the IMF. In his speech, Starmer said:

    The government has lost control of the British economy – and for what? They’ve crashed the pound – and for what?

    n

    Higher interest rates. Higher inflation. Higher borrowing. And for what?

    n

    Not for you. Not for working people. For tax cuts for the richest 1% in our society. Don’t forget. Don’t forgive.

    The IMF did not put it quite like that, but in an extraordinary statement last night it said something broadly similar – criticising the tax cuts (“we do not recommend large and untargeted fiscal packages at this juncture”) and calling for a rethink.

    Starmer is doing a round of interviews this morning. Speaking to Nick Ferrari on LBC, Starmer said that, in the light of the IMF warnings, the government should urgently review the plans it set out in its mini-budget. He said:

    The IMF statement is very serious, and it shows just what a mess the government have made of the economy. And it is self-inflicted. This was a step they didn’t have to take …

    n

    We all look at the graph and we see the pound falling, but it’s not an abstract graph; this is reflected in people’s mortgages etc and people are very, very worried this morning.

    n

    Some people who thought they had a mortgage arrangement last week now haven’t got one. Imagine that, a first-time buyer, suddenly your dream goes up.

    n

    This government has got to respond to this. They’ve got to set out, in terms, how are they going to fix the problems that they have made.

    n

    At the moment they are saying they might be doing something in November. That’s far too long. They’ve got to review the plans they put out on Friday. They’ve got to do it urgently, in my view.

    Ahead of the upcoming Big Bang 2.0 deregulatory moment for financial services, the chancellor discussed potential sectoral reforms that are targeted at boosting growth, generating investment, and delivering higher wages across the UK.

    The chancellor reiterated his view that ‘a strong UK economy has always depended on a strong financial services sector’.

    n

    n

    The NHS.

    n

    Social security.

    n

    The welfare state.

    n

    Council housing.

    n

    Modern higher education.

    n

    The Open University.

    n

    Decriminalising homosexuality.

    n

    Outlawing racial discrimination.

    n

    Introducing equal pay.

    n

    The national minimum wage.

    n

    Sure Start.

    n

    The Good Friday agreement.

    n

    Civil partnerships.

    n

    The Equality Act.

    n

    The Human Rights Act.

    n

    n

    In her speech to the Labour conference Bridget Phillipson, the shadow education secretary, pointed out that the UK government had got through five education secretaries within a year. Gavin Williamson was sacked in the reshuffle on 15 September 2021. He was replaced by Nadhim Zahawi, who was replaced by Michelle Donelan when Zahawi got promoted after Rishi Sunak resigned. Donelan quit within two days, joining the exodus of ministers from Boris Johnson’s government, and she was replaced by James Cleverly on an interim basis before Kit Malthouse got the job properly when Liz Truss formed her government. He was appointed on 6 September.

    n

    Education, under this government is like a school maths problem.

    n

    If you have five education secretaries in one year.

    n

    Three of them, who haven’t got a clue what they are doing.

    n

    Two of them, who want a return to the fifties.

    n

    What have you got left?

    n

    I’ll tell you.

    n

    A government that is failing our children.

    n

    Childcare in crisis.

    n

    A recovery programme in chaos.

    n

    School buildings collapsing.

    n

    A skills system unfit for today, never mind tomorrow.

    n

    Universities treated as a political battleground, not a public good.

    Wes Streeting, the shadow health secretary, told the Labour conference in his speech this morning that the party would have a 10-year plan for NHS modernisation that would include expanding the workforce, having higher standards for patients and shifting “the focus of healthcare out of the hospital and into the community”.

    Without a workforce plan, the Conservatives have no plan for the NHS.

    n

    Everything else they announce is a sticking plaster that fails to address the root cause of the NHS crisis.

    n

    Politics is about choices. Labour believes the country needs doctors and nurses more than the richest need a tax cut.

    n

    n

    When we were in government, Labour guaranteed appointments within two days.

    n

    Labour will give all patients the ability to book online, the opportunity to self-refer to specialist services where appropriate and a wider range of choice so that we can choose whether we want to see someone face-to-face, on the phone or via a video link.

    n

    The days of waiting on the phone at 8am to book an appointment with your GP will be over and we will bring back the family doctor.

    Here are the main points from Keir Starmer’s morning interview round.

    • Starmer suggested the government should urgently shelve elements of its mini-budget from last Friday in the light of the impact it is having on borrowing costs, and the criticism of it from the IMF. (See 7.36am.) The IMF intervention will be a particular boon for Labour members because when the 1976 Callaghan government had to go “cap in hand to the IMF” for a loan in 1976, that became emblematic of Labour financial incompetence (unfairly, some argue) and that charge severely damaged the party’s reputation for a generation. Liz Truss seems unlikely to take Starmer’s advice, and perform a U-turn, even though that could potentially solve the sterling crisis. Starmer probably realises that having the opposition call for a U-turn makes it, politically, even harder for the government to perform one.

    This is a situation where the government has self-inflicted harm on our economy. And people looking at their mortgages, looking at their prices this morning, will be worried sick, I think. I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re not a little bit angry that the government has lost control of the economy.

    Speaking on LBC, he said he spoke to his sister, who is a care worker, last night and she was “really struggling” with bills. He said:

    She’s a care worker. She’s really struggling. She’s just got her bill in, in her case her energy bill, and she’s really struggling. She’s got just a small amount of money left in the bank and she’s in a high state of anxiety. And that’s just an example of what it’s like for many, many people, whether it’s the mortgage, whether it’s prices.

    • He signalled Labour would expect the rich to pay more in tax – although he claimed it was “not really” right to call this a wealth tax. On LBC Nick Ferrari asked if he would ever look at a wealth tax and Starmer, who is normally a very fluent interviewee, hesitated and stuttered briefly as he started to reply. Starmer said:

    We are looking at how we tax fairly. On wealth, I’m looking at whether and how we tax all different forms of income. Some people obviously earn their income through a wage. Other people earn it through stocks and shares and dividends, and we’re looking at what is a fair way to tax all income, wherever it comes from.

    No, it’s not really a wealth tax. It’s looking at different forms of income. It’s stocks and shares and dividends.

    Labour has already committed to re-introducing the 45% top rate of income tax, which the Tories are abolishing. But Starmer is hinting the wealthy might pay more in tax under Labour in other ways too.

    • He said that what Rupa Huq said about Kwasi Kwarteng being “superficially” black was “racist”. But he refused to say she should be thrown out of the party, saying that she was now subject to a disciplinary process that needed to proceed independently.

    • He said that Labour’s plans to generate all electricity from green sources by 2030 would require changes to planning laws. When it was put to him on Radio 5 Live that Labour would not be able to put up enough wind turbines in time under current planning laws, he replied: “Yeah, we’re going to have to change planning regulations.”

    • He was unable to say exactly how Labour would fund the cut in the basic rate of income tax to 19%. Labour has said it will match the cut, which the Tories are funding through borrowing. Labour is opposed to unfunded tax cuts. Starmer said the party was still committed to its fiscal rules, which rule out unfunded tax cuts, but Starmer said an incoming Labour administration “will inherit the government’s arrangements”. It would get to the point where it could meet its fiscal rules “as quickly as we can”, he said.

    Good morning. Keir Starmer’s speech to Labour delegates was widely praised yesterday, but he must be the first opposition leader in many years whose conference speech has, in effect, received an endorsement from the IMF. In his speech, Starmer said:

    The government has lost control of the British economy – and for what? They’ve crashed the pound – and for what?

    n

    Higher interest rates. Higher inflation. Higher borrowing. And for what?

    n

    Not for you. Not for working people. For tax cuts for the richest 1% in our society. Don’t forget. Don’t forgive.

    The IMF did not put it quite like that, but in an extraordinary statement last night it said something broadly similar – criticising the tax cuts (“we do not recommend large and untargeted fiscal packages at this juncture”) and calling for a rethink.

    Starmer is doing a round of interviews this morning. Speaking to Nick Ferrari on LBC, Starmer said that, in the light of the IMF warnings, the government should urgently review the plans it set out in its mini-budget. He said:

    The IMF statement is very serious, and it shows just what a mess the government have made of the economy. And it is self-inflicted. This was a step they didn’t have to take …

    n

    We all look at the graph and we see the pound falling, but it’s not an abstract graph; this is reflected in people’s mortgages etc and people are very, very worried this morning.

    n

    Some people who thought they had a mortgage arrangement last week now haven’t got one. Imagine that, a first-time buyer, suddenly your dream goes up.

    n

    This government has got to respond to this. They’ve got to set out, in terms, how are they going to fix the problems that they have made.

    n

    At the moment they are saying they might be doing something in November. That’s far too long. They’ve got to review the plans they put out on Friday. They’ve got to do it urgently, in my view.

    Truss ‘standing by Kwarteng’ as Treasury defends plans despite market turmoil – UK politics live | Politics

    Jessica Elgot

    Labor membership increased by more than 2,500 over the party’s conference, fueled by the Conservatives’ turmoil and polls suggesting it is on course for victory.

    The conference in Liverpool was the most financially successful in the party’s history, according to insiders. A new poll by Deltapoll as the conference closed on Wednesday gave Labor a 13-point lead, as Liz Truss faced calls to sack her chancellor, Kwasi Kwarteng, following the emergency intervention by the Bank of England after his mini-budget.

    Angela Rayner closed the conference by predicting activists would be meeting soon under a Labor government. “Think how it will feel meeting here in this hall in a few years’ time after a term of a Labor government,” she said. “Back in power.”

    Martin Weale, a former member of the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee has warned the next 12 months are looking “pretty grim”, as he accused the chancellor of tipping “petrol on the fire”.

    Asked if there has been a degree of incompetence by the government, he told the Sky News Daily podcast: “It’s rather hard to come to any other conclusion.”

    Weale added: “The chancellor has in the Treasury a very well established mechanism for obtaining advice and my guess is he was offered advice and decided to ignore it.”

    Liz Truss is facing growing pressure from jittery Conservative MPs to sack Kwasi Kwarteng or face a mutiny after the Bank of England’s emergency intervention to address the turmoil in the financial markets, writes Pippa Crerar and Jessica Elgot.

    The move prompted comparisons to 1992’s Black Wednesday, when the UK was ignominiously ejected from the European exchange rate mechanism.

    Tory MPs expressed disbelief at how sterling had slumped after the government’s mini-budget sparked market turbulence, compounded by the chancellor’s subsequent remarks, at a time when households across the country were already struggling with the cost of living.

    They claimed that Kwarteng would have to resign for the party to survive the financial crisis as they urged the prime minister to reverse her plan to scrap the top 45p tax rate, which they said had been received badly in their constituencies.

    Crossbench peer and former Treasury minister Lord O’Neill of Gatley said investors and companies “all over the world” were “wondering what on earth is going on in the UK”.

    He told BBC Radio 4’s PM program: “This is a breathing room for the government, in my view, to seriously think what on earth is it really trying to do and … this idea that you can just magically quadruple productivity by a tiny. corporate tax policy reversal is at the core of why investors and companies all over the world, never mind here at home, are wondering what on earth is going on in the UK.”

    The EU “must not and will not back down” in the EU-UK dispute over the Northern Ireland Protocol, Michel Barnier said.

    The former chief Brexit negotiator for the bloc said that Brexit had not yielded any benefits for the UK and described it as “a unilateral decision by one party with negative impacts for itself”.

    During an address in Iveagh House in Dublin city, Barnier said Brexit also remained “a challenge” for Ireland, and “a blow” to the European Union project.

    “Brexit is in great part the result of populism. We must be aware that this poison might still arm Europe again. But populism must not be mistaken with public opinion or public sentiment.”

    The pound has managed to recover ground and London’s top index was in the green following the Bank of England surprise intervention to calm gilts markets.

    The Bank said it would launch an emergency program to buy government bonds – known as gilts – “on whatever scale is necessary” to try to bring down soaring UK public borrowing costs.

    It sent sterling into the lurch, which dipped to around 1.05 against the US dollar immediately after the announcement.

    However, the pound had edged back up to around 1.08 by the time European markets closed.

    The intervention also seemingly calmed the FTSE 100 index which had slumped in early morning trading and again immediately after the Bank of England’s announcement.

    Sir Keir Starmer: prime minister is a ‘danger’ to the economy.

    Liz Truss is a “danger” to the economy and has “lost control” following the fall-out from the government’s mini-budget, according to Sir Keir Starmer.

    The Labor leader stopped short of calling for the PM and her Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng to resign, saying it was a “secondary” issue.

    He told Sky News the decisions being taken in Downing Street meant there was “a danger” and the pair “took a huge risk” with their plans, adding: “They’re gambling our money… to give tax breaks to the very. rich.”

    Government departments to be asked to find ‘efficiency savings’

    Pippa Crerar

    The Guardian has learned that departments will be asked to look for “efficiency savings” and told they must live within the budget constraints of the current spending review.

    The chief secretary to the Treasury Chris Philp will write to departments within the next 48 hours setting out the request, a Whitehall source said.

    Though departmental budgets are not subject to the same inflation calculations as household budgets, budgets are still likely to be squeezed because of higher than anticipated inflation since the October 2021 review.

    Liz Truss ruled out more cuts during the Tory leadership contest. “I’m certainly not talking about public spending cuts, what I’m talking about is raising growth,” she said.

    Ken Clarke, a former chancellor, said he hoped the government’s fiscal plan had been torn up as he called the chancellor’s mini-budget a “serious mistake”.

    “I’ve never known a budget caused a financial crisis immediately like this,” Lord Clarke told Sky News.

    “So when I listened to the budget, I was rather astounded by its contents, and I hope we very rapidly get out of it.

    “I was hoping that we’d gone through a circus of the leadership election and we were now going to get down to dealing with a serious national crisis.

    “But they have made a catastrophic start, the budget was a serious mistake, and it has caused a serious problem.”

    Whitehall to be told to find ‘efficiency savings’ – reports

    Sky News’s deputy political editor, Sam Coates, understands that Chris Philp, the chief secretary to the Treasury, is to write to all secretaries of state calling for “efficiency savings” to be found.

    The former cabinet minister Julian Smith has called for the government to make changes to its growth plans, which, as Jessica Elgot, our deputy political editor, points out, is the first such intervention from a former cabinet minister.

    In his media rounds, the financial secretary to the Treasury, Andrew Griffith, tried to argue that “all major economies” were experiencing the same volatility as the UK.

    “What is unprecedented is the level of volatility we have seen in all developed markets. The UK went into this with a strong balance sheet. The UK has the second lowest debt to GDP ratio in the G7,” he told Sky News.

    We are seeing the same impacts of Putin’s war in Ukraine cascading through things like the cost of energy, some of the supply side implications of that.

    That’s impacting every major economy. Every major economy you are seeing interest rates going up as well. Every major economy is dealing with exactly these same issues.

    The Bank of England has made this timely intervention. What the chancellor and I are focused on is delivering that economic growth plan.

    Package of tax cuts and borrowing ‘right plans’ – Treasury minister

    Liz Truss and Kwasi Kwarteng have not appeared in public today to address the unfolding financial crisis, but the Treasury minister Andrew Griffith has done a round of broadcast interviews. In them he defended the government’s plans, which have largely been blamed for the seismic financial shock to markets.

    Griffith, the financial secretary to the Treasury, told Sky News: “We think they are the right plans because those plans make our economy competitive.”

    Get on and deliver that plan. That’s what I, the chancellor and my colleagues in government are focused on is getting on and delivering that growth.

    That is what is going to allow consumers to benefit. In the meantime, we are protecting every household and every business from the biggest macro shock out there at the moment, which is the cost of energy.

    Treasury financial secretary, Andrew Griffith says the current economic issues are being experienced in "every major economy" due to Putin's war, not the mini budget.
