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.
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.
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".
