In race for No 10, Johnson and Hunt vow to splash the cash in UK
Both Boris Johnson and foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt set sights on the economy and vow to cut taxes and spend on services
London — Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt vowed to spend billions of pounds on public services, infrastructure and tax cuts on Sunday as the two men battling to become prime minister pitched themselves as the best candidate to take on the opposition Labour Party.
The rivals to succeed Theresa May as leader of the governing Conservative Party set out plans to win broader political backing by investing in education, transport and defence, even if that means higher government borrowing. The race should be over by July 23.
