Vicky Pryce returning as government adviser

Economist Vicky Pryce is returning to a government job.

After being jailed for taking the speeding points of her former husband and then MP Chris Huhne, Pryce is back to her old job on Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) panel.

She returns to the role she first worked in over a decade ago. The role is unpaid, for those worried about potential excess down at BIS.

Pryce a member of City A.M.'s shadow monetary policy committee, and in January recommended that the Bank hold policy.

Confidence and growth are improving but business lending, investment and exports lagging behind. Despite rising employment, inflation remains subdued.
