LONDON (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May said on Wednesday that while austerity in the country was coming to an end, her government would remain committed to fiscal responsibility.

“There are better times ahead for people,” she said. “We will see debt falling and we will see support for our public services going up. Austerity is being brought to an end.

“What is not being brought to an end is fiscal responsibility,” she told parliament.
