The House has just lost two senior members with the deaths of Lord Richard and Lord Crickhowell. Lord Richard (Ivor Richard) was a former Labour MP and UK Ambassador the UN. In the Lords, he served as Leader of the House after Labour’s return to power in 1997. He also chaired the Richard Commission on Welsh Devolution and the Joint Committee on the Draft House of Lords Reform Bill in 2011-12, on which I served. Lord Crickhowell (Nicholas Edwards) was a Conservative MP and a long-serving Secretary of States for Wales, prior to his elevation to the peerage. Both were active in the Lords. Lord Crickhowell could be forthright in his speeches and I always found it useful to have him on the same side as me in any debate, which was virtually always the case, including in seeking evidence-based drugs policy. They will both be very much missed.
