In this week’s quiz, I asked respondents to identify three women peers presently in the House who have served as Cabinet ministers in the House of Commons. Seven readers – Michael, stephenpaterson, Croft, Len, Jonathan, AJackson and Steph – responded, each correctly identifying three women peers (such as Baronesses Bottomley, Thatcher and Williams of Crosby) who have served as Cabinet ministers in the Commons.
Not surprisingly, there was considerable overlap in the answers. Between them, the readers identified a total of five female peers. Given that there are only six women in the House who have served as Cabinet ministers in the Commons, there is thus one missing. Have a look at the answers to the question in the preceding post for the five names identified.
Who is the one female peer missing from the list who has served as a Cabinet minister while an MP?
