After her victory in the leadership election on Monday, Liz Truss visited Balmoral to ask the Queen to form a new Government and become Prime Minister.
After formally becoming Prime Minister, Truss made her way to No.10 to make her first speech as Prime Minister, to lay out her initial plan for Government.
Truss’ speech focused on three core pillars for the early days of her Government, underpinned by her libertarian desire to back freedom and enterprise. The pillars were: action to ‘get Britain working again’ by growing the economy, pursuing tax cuts and reform; action to deal with the energy crisis with a pledge for a major intervention to help businesses and households this week; and making sure people can get doctor’s appointments by safeguarding the future of the NHS.
