LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Tuesday he would not fund his plan to “level up” the country by attacking companies or through a “punitive raid” on wealth creators.

“When I say level up I don’t mean attacking our great companies, I don’t mean impeding the success of London or launching some punitive raid on the wealth creators,” he said in a speech in central England.
