BIRMINGHAM, England (Reuters) -British Prime Minister Liz Truss triggered a new row in her party on Tuesday by suggesting she could limit increases in benefit payments to less than soaring inflation as she seeks ways to fund her tax-cutting growth plan. Britain's new leader has endured a tumultuous time since she came to power on Sept. 6, first leading national mourning for Queen Elizabeth before releasing an economic package that sent international investors bolting for the exits. Lawmakers from the governing Conservatives - even some cabinet ministers - bickered over the direction of the party as it held its annual conference, with opinion polls pointing to electoral collapse rather than a honeymoon period for Truss.

(Reuters) -UK's main stock indexes ended higher for a second straight session on Monday, boosted by commodity-linked shares and Telecom Plus, with investors digesting the British government's reversal of tax cuts in its new fiscal policy. The blue-chip FTSE 100 and the FTSE 250 mid-cap indexes rose 0.2% and 0.7%, respectively, marking a positive start to the fourth quarter. The British government reversed plans to cut the highest rate of income tax after their "mini-budget" sparked turmoil in financial markets last week and prompted rating agency S&P Global to cut its outlook for the nation on Friday to "negative", sending the mid-cap index into its steepest weekly decline since March.
