Liz Truss is holding the first meeting of her Cabinet ahead of a debut showdown against Sir Keir Starmer at Prime Minister’s Questions at lunchtime, APA reports citing The Telegraph.

The Prime Minister finished appointing her top team last night and is now meeting with her senior ministers in No 10 this morning.

Ms. Truss is expected to present them with her final plan for tackling rising energy bills and the wider cost-of-living crisis.

After she has conducted Cabinet, the premier will then head to the House of Commons for PMQs at noon.

She will undoubtedly be given a warm welcome by Tory MPs when she arrives in the Commons, but Sir Keir will be keen to set the tone for their future clashes by subjecting her to a brutal grilling.
