( … ) Ahead of the speech, Labour frontbencher Jonathan Ashworth wrote to the Prime Minister calling on him to block Ms Truss’s yet-to-be published resignation honours list.
In the letter to Mr Sunak, he said: “Families and business across Britain are still paying (the) price for the Conservative Party crashing the economy and leaving working people worse, with higher taxes, higher mortgages and higher food and energy bills.
“Despite this, it has been widely reported that Liz Truss has submitted up to 14 people to receive resignation honours.
“This means that those who crashed the economy, who left millions to pay more for their mortgage and who undermined our economic institutions could receive an award.
“I urge you to block these honours.”
Liberal Democrat deputy leader Daisy Cooper mocked Ms Truss.
She said: “Liz Truss giving a speech on economic growth is like an arsonist giving a talk on fire safety.”
