Truss and Kwarteng meet with OBR amid market turmoil and party concerns

Following a meeting with the Prime Minister and Chancellor, the Office for Budget Responsibility confirmed it will deliver an initial forecast on October 7 which “will, as always, be based on our independent judgment about economic and fiscal prospects and the impact of the Government’s policies”. The unusual meeting will be seen as the latest effort by Liz Truss and Kwasi Kwarteng to reassure markets and voters that the economic turmoil of recent days is under control.
