Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng said on Tuesday that his medium-term fiscal plan will be published on 23 November as planned.
Speaking at the Tory party conference in Birmingham on Monday, Kwarteng said that the publication of the plans would happen “shortly”.

Subsequent reports from the BBC and Financial Times suggested that the publication of the plans could be brought forward to later this month.

However, asked in an interview with GB News on Tuesday what he meant by “shortly”, Kwarteng said: “Shortly is the 23rd…It’s going to be the 23rd of November.”
