Jeremy Hunt statement: Mini-budget U-turn expected in chancellor’s fiscal announcement - how to watch
Chancellor Jeremy Hunt is due to make a statement today, potentially including more mini-budget U-turns - here’s how to watch
and live on Freeview channel 276
At least one more U-turn is expected from Kwasi Kwarteng's original plan announced on September 23, as Jeremy Hunt brings forward measures from his Medium-Term Fiscal Plan to “support fiscal sustainability”.
In a very short press conference on Friday Prime Minister Liz Truss backtracked on the scrapping of the 45p top rate income tax and reinstated a planned increase in corporation tax, saying the mini-budget "went further and faster than markets were expecting".
It is hoped today's statement will stabalise the economy which has recently seen the value of the pound slump to a record low of $1.03, the Bank of England bail out pension funds and spiralling mortgage rates.
