Budget 2013: Liam Fox urges spending freeze and tax cuts

Former cabinet minister Liam Fox has urged the government to freeze public spending for five years and use the savings to cut taxes and the deficit.

The ex-defence secretary also argued that no area of government spending must be ring-fenced from cuts.

But David Cameron said he was "never short of advice" and promised not to reduce the NHS budget to make savings.

James Landale reports.
