Baroness Ludford

Liberal Democrat Peer

Baroness Ludford has informed us that due to being an MEP between 2009 and 2014, she was statutorily barred due to the EU law ban on ‘dual mandate’, reflected in the UK’s European Parliament (Disqualification)(UK & Gibraltar) Order 2009, from sitting or voting in the Lords during this time. This will have had an effect on the numerology section below.

    I apologise for interrupting the Minister, but I have been slightly provoked by his talk of a long-term ambition and a vision of 25 years.

  • Conversion Therapy Prohibition (Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity) Bill [HL] - Second Reading 9 Feb 2024
