Keir Starmer will pitch the opposition Labour Party as responsible stewards of the UK economy as he seeks to capitalize on the market chaos sparked by the ruling Tories’ economic package on Friday.

In a speech to Labour’s annual conference in Liverpool on Tuesday, Starmer will vow to “fight the Tories on economic growth” and “turn the UK into a growth superpower,” according to excerpts emailed in advance by the party.
