Lord Lipsey joins the officers of the All Party Group

When Baroness (Muriel) Turner decided to stand down as vice-chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Insurance & Financial Services last month, the group was left without a Labour peer among its officers. This was recitifed today when Lord (David) Lipsey was appointed as one of the two Joint Hon Secretaries of the group.
Lord Lipsey has been a keen supporter of the group since he joined it a few years ago and brings a wealth of expertise to the table. He was an adviser to Prime Minister Jim Callaghan back in the late 1970s before embarking on a journalistic career that took him to the Editor's chair of New Society, the Sunday Times as economics editor, deputy editor of The Sunday Correspondent and associate editor of The Times. He finished his journalistic career with The Economist as political and public policy editor.
He has also served as a public interest director of the Personal Investment Authority and a member of the Royal Commission on Long Term Care and has been a Labour peer since 2000.
