Watch live: Former UK Prime Minister Liz Truss delivers her first major speech in more than a year

Liz Truss is set to urge the government to cut taxes – and insist her plan to grow the economy would eventually have worked during a speech at the Institute for Government think tank in central London

A year on from her mini-budget, the former Tory prime minister will also say it was unfair to suggest her programme of tax cuts, amounting to £45bn, was unfunded

Ms Truss is expected to express that she, along with her then chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng, were put under immense pressure to "rush" and get "results", and that her swift demise was brought about by the reaction from the "political and economic establishment which fed into the markets"
