Recent appearances

  • Cabinet Office: House of Lords Appointments: Diversity 29 Feb 2024

    Since 2010, female representation has risen to 29.1% and ethnic minority representation had risen by November 2021—those are the latest verified figures I have—to 6.6%.
  • Cabinet Office: House of Lords Appointments: Diversity 29 Feb 2024

    It is a long-standing tradition that anybody who reaches the height of Prime Minister—irrespective of which party that is for—has a resignation list. The former Prime Minister has appointed accomplished people, and I am quite sure that they will contribute significantly to the other House.
  • Cabinet Office: Resignation Honours List: Public Trust 29 Feb 2024

    It is a long-standing convention under successive Governments that outgoing Prime Ministers can draw up a resignation list. That has been the case under past Governments from across the political spectrum, and any names proposed are subject to the usual propriety checks.
