Lord Lawson retires from the House of Lords
I wanted to give due note and thanks to Nigel Lawson, Baron Lawson of Blaby PC for his long public service on the announcement earlier this year that he is now to retire from the House of Lords.
Nigel Lawson was the MP for the constituency of Blaby (now South Leicestershire) from 1974 to 1992 and served in the Cabinet of Margaret Thatcher from 1981 to 1989.
He is remembered as one of the finest post war Chancellor of The Exchequer’s this country has had.
Nigel was a great friend to many in the constituency and we were honoured in recent times when Nigel, together with his successor, Andrew Robathan (now Lord Robathan) returned to help open Alberto Costa MP’s office in Blaby.
We were able to celebrate this occasion and have a chance to reminisce with a reception later that day at the home of Grahame and Elaine Berkeley.
Nigel now 91 on the 11th March this year has finally decided to retire from the House of Lords ending almost 50 continuous years of public service as a member of the House of Commons and House of Lords.
This is a remarkable feat and one that deserves recognition and thanks from his friends and supporters in his home constituency.
