British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s decision not to attend the COP27 climate summit is being kept under review and will depend on progress being made on preparation for a budget statement due on November 17, his spokesman said on Monday.


Last week Sunak said he was focusing on pressing domestic matters, and his office said he was not expected to travel to the event in Egypt.


“The prime minister is focused on pressing domestic issues, most significantly preparing for the autumn statement, so any attendance at COP would depend on progress on preparation for that fiscal event,” the spokesman said.
