Britain's Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne prepares to speak at a news conference in central LondonLONDON (Reuters) - Chancellor George Osborne said on Tuesday that Britain would have to raise taxes and cut spending to deal with the economic challenge posed after Britons voted to leave the European Union. "We are absolutely going to have to provide fiscal security to people, we are going to have to show the country and the world that the government can live within its means," he told BBC radio.
