British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak will want to take some time to look at the detail of a fiscal statement originally due at the end of this month, foreign minister James Cleverly said on Wednesday.

Cleverly told Sky News he did not have a “specific confirmation” of the date of the fiscal statement, originally planned for Oct. 31 by Sunak's predecessor Liz Truss, who left office on Tuesday.
