Alexander Says IMF Warning Doesn’t Lead U.K. to Change Plans
U.K. Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander said the International Monetary Fund warning yesterday on the threat to British economic growth will not change the government’s spending plans.
“The message I’ve taken from what they’ve said is we should stick to our plans,” Alexander said in an interview with BBC Radio 4’s “Today” show. “What we need to have across the world is countries taking action that’s appropriate to their own circumstances to deal with the problems that they face.”
