Jacob Rees-Mogg: ...published tomorrow.

I can think of no better candidate than the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, once he has fulfilled his current obligations on Brexit.

Shared Rural Network - Statement (28 Oct 2019)

Lord Inglewood: chairman of the Cumbrian local enterprise organisation, which probably contains a lot of tops of mountains.
