UK government to focus on pre-agreed policy, not unpicking decisions- PM’s spokesman

LONDON, July 8 (Reuters) – Britain’s government will focus on delivering pre-agreed policy rather than unpicking previously agreed decisions, a spokesman for Boris Johnson said on Friday, saying the prime minister’s resignation would not derail post-Brexit legislation.

A day after Johnson said he would quit, the spokesman said “responsible government needs to react to events” such as a sudden economic worsening, but the government had “significant support in place” to tackle the cost-of-living crisis.

“Essentially the government will focus on delivering on pre-agreed policy, delivering on manifesto commitments, it won’t seek to make any large fiscal changes nor will it seek to unpick previously agreed policy,” the spokesman told reporters.
