New Job for Gillian Shephard
The Association of Conservative Peers has a new chairman. Peter Brooke decided to give up the post and has been replaced by my old friend Gillian Shephard. It's a tricky time for the Peers as a further bout of reform looms on the horizon. Knowing her qualities as I do they couldn't have got a more doughty representative. She's got just the right mix of charm and grit.
