Treasury minister makes dig at Tories in government pledge: ‘The adults are back in the room’

Treasury minister Darren Jones took a swipe at the Tories during a live television interview.

Appearing on BBC Breakfast on Monday (8 July), Mr Jones discussed Labour’s plan for economic growth, before making a dig at former Tory ministers.

He said: “The key thing you’ll see from this Labour government is we are going to return, both to the service of the British people but to the norms, the adults are back in the room.

“Announcements we make will be made to Parliament. They will follow proper processes through Parliament. We welcome them to be challenged and scrutinised by colleagues from different parties.”
