As an urgent question was raised in the Commons about George Osborne’s appointment as Editor of the Evening Standard, the former Chancellor rose to defend himself.

“When I heard that this urgent question had been granted, I thought it was important to be here although unfortunately we have missed the deadline for the Evening Standard,” he joked.

Adding: “In my view, this parliament is enhanced when we have people of different experience take part in our robust debate, and when people who have held senior office continue to contribute to the decisions we have to make.

“But I will listen to what my colleagues have to say in this debate, I’m interested to hear.”
