Mini-Budget: Energy package to cost £60 billion reveals Kwarteng

The Government's energy package will cost £60 billion for the six months from October, the Chancellor said. Kwasi Kwarteng said growth is "not as high as it should be", noting this has "made it harder to pay for public services" and in turn led to higher taxes.He said it was "entirely appropriate for the government to use our borrowing powers to fund temporary measures to support families and businesses".
