Former minister David Laws said he was "very happy to be a backbench supporter" of the coalition, when he was asked if he would return to government.

The Liberal Democrat said it was "not for me to speculate on some of these other issues".

He left his job as a Treasury minister in 2010 after admitting he claimed expenses to pay his partner rent.
