Tax consultant to sit on Lords commission
A self-employed Belfast tax consultant has been chosen to sit on the new House of Lords appointment commission.
Felicity Huston, aged 36, is one of four independent members of the seven strong body which will choose non-party political peers for the Parliament Upper Chamber.
Announcing the members of the new body Tony Blair said: ‘I removes an important source of patronage from the hands of the prime minister of the day.’
Earlier this year PricewaterhouseCoopers was appointed to sift through applications to help select members of the House of Lords Appointments Commission which forms a key part of the controversial plans to reform the second chamber.
