The Truss manifesto

LONDON — Liz Truss has not published her plan for government, but this is the closest thing to it.

Over nearly eight long weeks of hustings, interviews, articles and debates, the two contenders for the Tory leadership have made their respective cases for why they should succeed Boris Johnson as U.K. prime minister. Among all the campaign jibes and blue-on-blue attacks, have been scores of pledges and promises for how to deal with the urgent problems facing the country.

The result of the contest won’t be known for sure until September 5, but with Foreign Secretary Truss the runaway favorite, POLITICO has compiled every policy commitment she made during over 40 hours of hustings as well as countless interviews and articles on the campaign trail. It is in effect the 149 separate policy pledges that make up the Truss manifesto.
