Christopher Francis Fox (Chris Fox) (born 27 September 1957) is a British Liberal Democrat politician. He was made life peer as Baron Fox, of Leominster in the County of Herefordshire, on 11 September 2014.[1]

He graduated with a BSc in chemistry from Imperial College London.[2] Fox spent a year as president of the Imperial College Students' Union.[3]

As of June 2017 he was appointed Liberal Democrat Lords Spokesperson for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy in the House of Lords. From June 2015 he was a member of the Lords Science and Technology Committee, in July 2019 changing to be a member of the Economic Affairs Committee.[4][5]

In May 2020 The Daily Telegraph reported that Fox furloughed himself under the government financed COVID support scheme in his single employee company, Vulpes Advisory, as well as claiming his £162 daily allowance for Lords Zoom video meetings attendance. The newspaper critically characterised this as a "double dip into the taxpayers' pocket", and some MPs said this was "milking the taxpayer".[6]
