Mini Budget still planned for this month, No 10 says
Politics has largely been put on hold during the 10-day period of mourning for the Queen, which lasts until her funeral on Monday. Some new ministers are also yet to be appointed, after Liz Truss became prime minister last Tuesday. Ordinary parliamentary business has been suspended for the period of mourning, although both Houses of Parliament sat on Friday and Saturday to allow politicians to pay tribute to the Queen. The Labour and Conservative Party conferences are still expected to go ahead.The period of mourning has also delayed the appointment of some new ministers. The prime minister's official spokesman said the "Vast majority" of appointments had been made but there were "Still a small number" remaining.
