Boris Johnson refused to be drawn on what further action the government might take to address the cost of living crisis.

During a visit to Stoke-on-Trent, the prime minister instead focused on measures that have already been announced, including council tax cuts.

“There is going to be a tax cut for 70 per cent of people on national insurance, that's probably worth about £330,” Mr Johnson said.

“We will do things to help people in the short term of course, and I'm not going to anticipate anything more we may do.”
