Theresa May is to say she has an “unshakeable sense of purpose” to build a “fairer Britain” in her first big speech since losing her majority.

And in the speech, on Tuesday, she will urge other parties to work with her on ideas to tackle “unfairness”. Ministers loyal to Mrs May have dismissed reports of plots…
