French deficit reduction plan expected ‘in coming days’

The French prime minister says he’ll give details of his plan to reduce the country’s budget deficit ‘in the coming days’. Manuel Valls was speaking after he unveiled €11 billion of fresh tax cuts during his maiden speech to parliament, on top of the €30 billion already announced. Despite being allowed two extra years to balance its budget by the EU, France is set to miss its deficit target for next year.
