Jeremy Hunt

The Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt is the Conservative MP for South West Surrey, and has been an MP continuously since 5 May 2005. He currently holds the Government post of Chancellor of the Exchequer.

Mr Hunt said he didn’t think the country was going to have to enter a period of austerity, and that people would eventually see the government was willing to do “tough and difficult things” to secure long term prosperity.

After being pressed about Prime Minister Liz Truss’s premiership, the new chancellor said that he believes voters want stability rather than a change at the top.
