A Yorkshire Lass at the Court of Thatcher

Last night, I attended the launch event of my friend Elizabeth Peacock’s new book.


Elizabeth served together in the House of Commons between 1983 and 1997 – I was MP for Erith and Crayford and she was MP for Batley and Spen.

Both Cheryl Gillan MP and I said a few words about our service with Elizabeth to a packed room at the Centre for Policy Studies. We were joined by fellow Ministers and MPs, as well as friends and former colleagues.
