'A lot to get on with', says new UK finance minister Sunak

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s new finance minister Rishi Sunak said on Thursday that there was “a lot to get on with,” his first public comment since replacing Sajid Javid.

Javid resigned on earlier on Thursday, a surprise move that underlined Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s desire to tighten his grip on government by jettisoning a minister who refused to toe the line.
