President Bill Clinton announced last night that he would nominate Philip Lader, a long-time friend and former member of his administration, as ambassador to Britain.

If confirmed by the Senate, Mr Lader would replace the retired admiral, William Crowe, at the Court of St James.

London would be his first diplomatic post. He completed graduate studies at Oxford University in 1968, has been administrator of the Small Business Administration and was deputy White House chief of staff. Reuters - Washington
