Cost of living support package being ‘worked up’ for next PM

Business

The government is working on a package of cost of living support for the next prime minister, the chief secretary to the Treasury has said.

Simon Clarke, who is one of Liz Truss’s most vocal supporters, said: “Of course, the government is working up a package of cost of living support that the next prime minister can consider when they take office.”

In a series of tweets, he said it is “absolutely right to consider these options in the round” when the new leader takes the reins, rather than announce “new uncosted policies” during the election period.

It comes after Downing Street faced a backlash for ruling out new measures during Boris Johnson’s remaining time in office, saying that was a task for the next PM.
