Chancellor George Osborne should announce further cuts to taxes and spending, former Cabinet minister Liam Fox said, as he indicated he would like to return to frontline politics.

Dr Fox, a standard-bearer for the Tory right, acknowledged there had been “muttering” about David Cameron’s leadership but insisted the Prime Minister had silenced his critics over Europe.

Asked if he would return to government if Mr Cameron asked, Dr Fox said anyone offered the chance to serve their country “ought to say yes”.

Questions about Mr Cameron’s leadership have been asked recently, after reports that backbencher Adam Afriyie was being touted as a potential successor.
