Boris Johnson orders cuts to around 90,000 civil service jobs

BBC News says Boris Johnson has demanded his cabinet comes up with a plan to cut about 90,000 civil service jobs to free up cash to tackle the cost of living.

Sources said the PM wants staffing to return to 2016 levels in the coming years, cutting about one in five posts.

Mr Johnson told the Daily Mail: “We have got to cut the cost of government to reduce the cost of living.”

A civil service union said the “ill thought-out” plan could affect services such as passport processing.

At an away day in Stoke-on-Trent on Thursday, the prime minister gave ministers a month to produce plans to drastically shrink the civil service, as the government comes under increasing pressure over the rising cost of living.
