LONDON (Reuters) - Finance minister Philip Hammond told top ministers on Tuesday there was still work to be done on the British economy and that he would continue to take a balanced approach to its management, a spokesman for Prime Minister Theresa May said.

“He said there is still work to be done but the government will always take a balanced approach to reduce our debt, invest in public services and keep taxes low,” her spokesman told reporters.
