Liz Truss news LIVE – Embattled PM to face fiery PMQs today after Jeremy Hunt hints at U-turn on pension ‘triple lock’


LIZ Truss is bracing for her first PMQ’s since Jeremy Hunt was made Chancellor and axed nearly all of her mini-budget policies.

At 12pm today, Liz Truss will face Sir Keir Starmer in what’s set to be a dramatic session and the first since Jeremy Hunt drastically tore up her tax cuts pledge.

But the PM could even face calls from rebel Tory MPs to go as her leadership hangs in the balance.

Meanwhile, Downing Street has indicated ministers could ditch their commitment to the triple lock pension, as the new Chancellor searches to plug a multi-billion pound black hole.

“I’ve committed to the triple lock. Yes,” Truss said in a BBC interview this week – but after replacing Kwasi Kwarteng in the Treasury after their disastrous mini-budget, Downing Street has backed down on this pledge.
