Truss Says She's Against Windfall Tax on UK Energy Firms

UK Prime Minister Liz Truss says a windfall tax on energy companies would hinder investment in the economy. Speaking in the House of Commons during her first Prime Minister's Questions appearance, Truss said her government plans to open up energy supplies in the North Sea and build more nuclear power capacity as Britain faces soaring gas and electricity prices. Opposition Labour Party leader Keir Starmer also speaks.
