George Osborne has defended his appointment as London Evening Standard editor, telling the Commons that Parliament is "enhanced" when people of different experience take part in it.

He said: "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.

Mr Osborne has taken a string of new jobs since leaving the Tory backbench last year.

He earns £650,000 a year as an adviser to US investment firm BlackRock, chairs the Northern Powerhouse Partnership, is a Kissinger Fellow and has become a face on the lucrative after-dinner speech circuit.
