Michael Gove had been leading the opposition to the axing of the 45p tax rate but has now suggested he could support the mini-budget.
Speaking after this policy was scrapped, Mr Gove was asked if he could now support the government.
He told Times Radio: “I think so on the basis of everything that I know.
“Again, to be fair to Kwasi (Kwarteng) and to Liz (Truss), they’ll have an opportunity both this week and also when parliament returns to lay out more detail in the growth plan overall.
“And I think again in fairness to them, there were lots of good things that they announced, and some potentially interesting things, the detail of which I will have to analyse and scrutinise, and the debate over the 45p tax increase obscured that.
“So naturally, I’m still a Conservative MP last time I checked, though I’ll check in with the chief whip later, and therefore I will want to support, and I think as I say on the basis of everything I’ve heard, there’s lots that can be enthusiastically supported.”
