Hunt stressed that he considers himself “a conservative who believes in tax cuts” and has justified recent government spending “as tough decisions”, for example the implementation of £5 billion in welfare.

“The best way to reduce government spending is to reduce inflation”, he opined.

He also defended himself against criticism of his position on close relations with the European Union, stating that the government disregards any movement that moves away from the Trade and Cooperation Agreement and the sovereignty of the United Kingdom, and also defended the independence of the Bank of England , including the transition from quantitative easing (QE) to quantitative tightening (QT).
