Lib Dem call to give Vince Cable chancellor's job
26 July 2012 Last updated at 07:52 BST
A close ally of Vince Cable has called for the business secretary to replace George Osborne as chancellor.
Liberal Democrat Lord Oakeshott said Mr Osborne was a "work experience chancellor" with "no business experience".
Mr Cable later told the BBC he would "probably" make a good chancellor but Mr Osborne was doing the job well and "nobody was suggesting" a change.
Speculation about Mr Osborne's future came after the latest figures revealed that the economy had shrunk by 0.7% between April and June.
