Mark Harper: Liz Truss' cost-of-living plan not up to task

Conservative MP Mark Harper says Tory leadership candidate Liz Truss' cost-of living-plan "is not up to the task", and would "give a lot to the highest paid, nothing to pensioners and little to those working full-time on the national living wage.

Harper adds that failure to support the most vulnerable households "during a very difficult winter" would be "incredibly electorally damaging".
