トーリー党のリーダーシップレース: Liz Truss insists U-turn over regional pay policy shows she is ‘decisive

リズ・トラス is embroiled in fresh controversy after a leaked email left her facing questions over why she did not declare thousands of pounds spent on schmoozing Tory MPs in the run up to her bid to succeed ボリス・ジョンソン.

Around a dozen 保守的 MPs attended a so-called “Fizz with Liz” champagne dinner hosted by the 外国人秘書 at Mayfair members club 5 Hertford St last year.

The event was paid for by club owner, multimillionaire aristocrat Robin Birley.

いつ 独立者 asked why Ms Truss has not declared the function – worth an estimated £3,000 – in the Commons register, where MPs are obliged to disclose hospitality worth more than £300, her spokesperson denied she had organised it.

It had “nothing to do with her," 彼らは言った. Ms Truss was merely one of a number of Conservative MP guests invited by “organiser and host” Mr Birley, 首相のスポークスマンは記者団に語った.

しかしながら, this account is disputed by other MPs present who told 独立者 that she was the host and not Mr Birley, who “turned up briefly to say hello”.

Interest rates ‘should have been raised a long time ago

An ally of Liz Truss said she would review whether the Bank of England’s current arrangements are “fit for purpose” if she becomes prime minister.

Attorney General Suella Braverman told Sky News: “Interest rates should have been raised a long time ago and the Bank of England has been too slow in this regard.”

彼女は付け加えた: “Liz Truss has made clear that she wants to review the mandate that the Bank of England has, so that’s going to be looking in detail at exactly what the Bank of England does and see whether it’s actually fit for purpose in terms of its entire exclusionary independence over interest rates.”

Ms Braverman rejected criticism that Ms Truss’s tax-cutting plans would further drive up inflation.

“People say ‘we can’t afford to cut taxes’, Liz thinks – and I agree with her – that we can’t afford not to cut taxes," 彼女は言いました.

Truss’s plans for economy and public finances “dangerous”

A senior supporter of Rishi Sunak warned that Liz Truss’s plans for the economy and public finances were “dangerous”.

メル・ストライド, chairman of the Commons Treasury Committee, told BBC Radio 4’s Today: “What we must do now is avoid stoking the inflation and making the problem even worse.

“One of the ways you can make the problem very significantly worse is by coming forward with large-scale, tens of billions of pounds’ worth, of unfunded tax cuts.”

彼が追加した: “The big decision, fiscally, here is around tax. You have to do it in a measured way and at the right time but not start coming forward with tens of billions of unfunded tax cuts right now.

“I think that would be really quite dangerous.”

He insisted Mr Sunak would “absolutely not” concede despite polls suggesting he was a long way behind Ms Truss.

Mr Strike claimed there was a “huge disconnect” between the polls and the situation on the ground where “there is a huge amount of support for Rishi”.

But writing in the タイムズ, Mr Javid criticises his friend’s stance as he backs his rival to win the keys to Downing Street.

‘Ravaged’ social care sector needs more money before year is out – MP

England’s “ravaged” adult social care sector urgently needs more money from government before the year is out, MPs have warned.

A cash injection and a long-term plan is needed to help the sector meet immediate cost pressures and become sustainable over the coming years, the Levelling Up, 住宅とコミュニティ (LUHC) Committee said.

The cross-party committee said the pressures of the coronavirus pandemic have exacerbated underlying challenges of rising demand, unmet need and difficulties in recruiting and keeping staff.

Rising inflation and increases in the National Living Wage and the National Minimum Wage are also adding pressure.

The committee, which held an inquiry into the long-term funding of adult social care, said the “message rang clear” that adult social care “does not have enough funding either in the here and now, or in the longer term”.

UK ‘not on course’ to become science and technology superpower, warn peers

Ministers are set to fall short in their promise to turn the イギリス into a “理科 and tech superpower” by 2030, according to a cross-party group of peers, who described the government’s science policy as “inconsistent and unclear”.

The House of Lords’ science and technology committee said the commitment was at risk of becoming “an empty slogan” without a “laser focus on implementation”.

The peers also expressed concern over the government’s failure to appoint a new science minister after ジョージ・フリーマン resigned and vacated the position on 7 7月. A replacement is not expected to be appointed until the Conservative Party elects a new 首相.

They called on Boris Johnson’s successor, due to be announced early next month, to prioritise appointing a minister for science, research and innovation to a cabinet-level position.

MPs urge reform of laws that give cohabiting couples ‘inferior protections’

“Urgent” reforms are needed to current laws which leave cohabiting couples receiving “inferior protections” despite a shift in social norms, a cross-party group of MPs has suggested.

The Commons Women and Equalities Committee warned that many people believe in the “so-called common-law marriage myth”, often leaving women vulnerable to a “lack of legal protection on family breakdown” or the death of a partner.

The MPs’ report, entitled The Rights Of Cohabiting Partners, noted that cohabitation “is the fastest growing family type” in England and Wales, 追加する: "に 2021 周りにあった 3.6 million cohabiting couples in the UK compared with 1.5 million in 1996.”

追加しました: “Whereas married couples and civil partners in England and Wales have certain legal rights and responsibilities upon divorce or death, cohabitants receive inferior protections.

Notwithstanding the legal reality, many people believe in the so-called ‘common-law marriage myth’, which is the erroneous belief that, after a certain amount of time of living together, the law treats cohabitants as if they were married. On family breakdown, cohabitants must rely on complex property law and trusts principles.
