Newspaper headlines: New Year tax cuts and Labour's 'green growth' plan – BBC

By BBC News

"You ain't seen nothing yet," declares the headline on the front of the Sunday Express.
It says Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng has signalled that Friday's "mini-Budget bonanza" – as the paper puts it – is "just the start" and that he plans to follow the tax cuts with a wave of further action to kickstart the economy.
The Express goes on to say that the prime minister is "unapologetic" about her vision of a low-tax economy, despite criticism from Labour MPs and some think tanks.
The Sunday Telegraph says the Truss government plans to cut taxes again in the New Year.
It says the prime minister's "tax-cutting spree" will include further reductions in income tax, and discounts for savers and child benefit claimants.
The paper says, despite warnings from rebel Tory MPs about some of the measures already announced, ministers have vowed to press on with cuts and deregulation.
The Sunday Times reports that Liz Truss is facing her first cabinet row over plans to increase immigration to boost economic growth.
The paper says the prime minister is pushing for wide-ranging reform of Britain's visa system to tackle acute labour shortages.
But it says the idea will be met with "strong resistance" from some cabinet Brexiteers, including Home Secretary Suella Braverman and Trade Secretary Kemi Badenoch.
The Observer leads with details of what it calls Sir Keir Starmer's "energy revolution" to counter the "Truss tax cuts" and turn the UK into the world's first green "superpower" by 2030.
The Labour leader tells the paper his plan would release the British people from the mercy of "dictators", such as Vladimir Putin, when it comes to energy costs and would cut hundreds of pounds off annual household bills "for good".
The Independent carries a photo of women demonstrating in Iraq – their faces uncovered – as protests spread after the death of a young woman in Iran.

The Mail on Sunday and the Sun on Sunday both report that Prince Harry is trying to make last-minute changes to what they call his "bombshell" memoir.
The papers say sources have told them the final draft has been signed off, but that he wants to "tone down" sections which might be deemed "insensitive", in light of Queen Elizabeth's death and his father becoming King.
The Mail says his request may be seen as a conciliatory gesture to the rest of the royal family.
The Sun says the Duke of Sussex is having a "£35m book wobble". The publisher has made no comment.
The former football manager and player Harry Redknapp and his wife are pictured on the front of the Sunday Mirror, alongside the headline "My Sandra's Covid Hell".
He tells the paper that he feared for his wife's life as she struggled to breathe after catching the virus in the new year.
The Mirror says that, thankfully, she's on the mend and "national treasure" Harry is fighting fit too.
