Although the CBI is strictly apolitical, Lambert was known as a Labour supporter: he was the first editor of the FT to back Labour in an election. Last year he performed a surprising reversal, swinging the CBI's weight behind the key Tory proposal of swift deficit reduction.
He chaired the Lambert Review on the relationship between higher education and business.
