London politics LIVE: US slams Kwasi Kwarteng’s mini-Budget saying it’s ‘hard to see’ inflation being taken ‘very seriously’

Kwasi Kwarteng’s mini-Budget has been criticised by Britain’s strongest ally which said it “isn’t going to fight inflation” or promote long-term economic growth. US Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo said the package of measures unveiled last Friday which triggered turmoil in financial markets is “not the one we’re pursuing”. “Investors, business people want to see world leaders taking inflation very seriously, and it’s hard to see that out of this new government,” she said. However Chancellor Kwarteng insisted that the Government is “sticking to the growth plan” and that it is “going to help people with energy bills”. Asked if he had a message for the financial markets as he prepared to visit a local business in Darlington, Mr Kwarteng told the PA news agency: "Absolutely. We are sticking to the growth plan and we are going to help people with energy bills. That's my two top priorities." Earlier, Prime Minister Liz Truss defended the fiscal plans but refused to guarantee whether people’s pensions are safe. Speaking to BBC Radio Bristol during her interview round on Thursday, the prime minister was asked by presenter James Hanson if she could rule out further shocks to pensions after the Bank of England was forced to intervene on Wednesday. Despite being pressed by the presenter, Ms Truss refused to rule out any further threats to pensions, instead saying: “Well, the Bank of England do that and they do a very good job of it.” The Bank of England stepped in to stop a collapse in pension fund investments with a £65 billion bond-buying programme to address what it described as a potential “material risk to UK financial stability”.
