London, Nov 20 (PTI) British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak on Monday promised that he is ready to “responsibly” cut taxes now that his target to halve inflation by the end of this year has been met.

However, the British Indian leader sought to balance expectations from the Autumn Statement budget scheduled for this week by cautioning that the government won’t be doing “everything at once”.

Amid mounting pressure from sections of the governing Conservative Party to use tax cuts to revive the party’s electoral fortunes, Sunak said that he intends to implement the next phase of economic growth by turning to taxation in a disciplined way.
