LONDON – It is right for the British government to take its time over its new energy strategy, Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman said on Monday.

Johnson said on March 16 that a new national energy strategy would be set out this week as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine continues to drive up energy prices.

Asked if it had been delayed, the spokesman said: “This is something that it’s right to take the time to make sure we have a detailed, comprehensive strategy, and we’ll set out our plans when it’s ready but it’s something we’re working on at speed.”
