Ben Wallace: Truss' tax cut will help vulnerable quickest

Ben Wallace says Liz Truss' plan to cut taxes, which Dominic Raab has dubbed "political suicide", is the "quickest way" to get money into people's pockets and is "the right way" to tackle the cost-of-living crisis.

The defence secretary claims neither Rishi Sunak nor the Labour party are "offering a solution" to the "significant rises" in gas and energy bills, which is expected to hit vulnerable households hardest this winter.

What Do the New Tory Cabinet Members Stand For?

The new Prime Minister Liz Truss handed top cabinet jobs to ultra-loyalists just hours after succeeding Boris Johnson.

For the first time in British political history, none of the four great offices of state - PM, Chancellor of the Exchequer, Home Secretary and Foregin Secretary are held by white men.
