Cameron vows to 'cut through dither' to help British economy
LONDON (AFP) - British Prime Minister David Cameron vowed on Sunday to "cut through the dither" and breathe new life into the nation's recession-mired economy with a series of new initiatives.
With lawmakers returning to parliament on Monday after their summer break, Mr Cameron also pledged that he would continue cutting debt amid the ongoing euro zone sovereign debt crisis.
"We will return (to parliament) this week with new goverenment bills for economic development," he wrote in the Mail on Sunday newspaper. The premier said his Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition government would put forward measures to boost growth by relaxing planning rules for new homes.
"A key part of recovery is building the houses our people need, but a familiar cry goes up. 'Yes we want more housing; but no to every development - and not in my back yard'." "Frankly, I am frustrated by the hoops you have to jump through to get anything done - and I come back to parliament more determined than ever to cut through the dither that holds this country back," he said.
