This weekend’s quiz questions. The House of Commons has a promiment member who is blind (David Blunkett, a university classmate of mine.) He is not the first blind member to sit in the House of Commons. The House of Lords also has had a number of members who have been blind. One of them was among the first batch of life peers created in 1958. Who was he?
Most of those peers who have been blind are believed to have lost their sight later in life. (One, for example, was blinded in war.) One, though, has been blind since birth. Can you name him?
