Straight to business! Truss gathers new-look Cabinet to tackle her three-point plan for UK

2 mins read

Members of the Cabinet met inside No10 Downing Street at 8.30am this morning, just 12 hours after they were appointed.

The new Prime Minister yesterday set out three areas of immediate priority that her Government would tackle.

She has promised to focus her attention on getting a grip on the energy crisis, reducing taxes, and dealing with the backlog in the NHS as a matter of urgency.

Gathered around the Cabinet table, Ms Truss told her ministers they would need to deliver for the British people and help them through the economic turmoil ahead.

She was surrounded by a team of loyalists with senior MPs who had backed former leadership contender Rishi Sunak culled.

In a historic moment, none of the MPs holding the four great offices of state are white men.

Ms Truss appointed Kwasi Kwarteng as Chancellor, Suella Braverman as Home Secretary, and James Cleverly to the role of overseeing the Foreign Office.

A plan on how to fix skyrocketing energy bills is set to be announced as soon as tomorrow.

Ahead of the Cabinet meeting, the Prime Minister’s deputy, Therese Coffey, said Ms Truss recognised the need to “hit the ground running”.

She added the new Cabinet “will continue to make sure that we do strain every sinew, put everything that we can in order to get our economy growing again”.
