'Trickle-down' economics is not UK policy, minister says

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's fiscal policies under Prime Minister Liz Truss cannot be described as 'trickle-down' economics, foreign office minister Gillian Keegan told the BBC on Wednesday.

"There's no way you could describe our approach as 'trickle- down'," she said, citing the government's expenditure on a package of support to help consumer fighting high energy bills.
