Liz Truss's 1st Policy U-turn on tax reforms

Liz Truss's 1st Policy U-turn on tax reforms

Great Britain scrapped plans to axe its top bracket income tax rate just 10 days after a debt-driven budget sparked turmoil on markets and fierce criticism during a cost-of-living crisis. On the second day of the ruling Conservative Party's annual conference, finance minister Kwasi Kwarteng tweeted he was "not proceeding" with the removal of the top 45-percent income tax rate, adding it had become a "distraction".
    
The latest announcement marked the first major policy U-turn under new British Prime Minister Liz Truss, who took office less than one month ago. "It is clear that the abolition of the 45 percent tax rate has become a distraction from our overriding mission to tackle the challenges facing our country. As a result, I'm announcing we are not proceeding with the abolition of the rate.
