Professional Experience

I was a cabinet and government Minister for twelve years from 1997, including: Secretaries of State for Work and Pensions, Northern Ireland and Wales. I was Leader of the House of Commons; Foreign Minister (Africa, Middle East, South Asia, UN); Europe Minister; Energy Minister. I have chaired the United Nations Security Council and negotiated two UN Treaties on nuclear non-proliferation and ‘’blood’ diamonds. I negotiated a draft European Treaty reported by European media in 2003 as a ‘victory for the UK’.
I was also a member of the House of Lords November from 2015; Member of Parliament 1991 – 2015. Non-Executive Director 2013- current. BSc (Econ) (1973), MPhil (1980).
As an MP, I helped resolve difficult disputes between constituents and statutory authorities; between companies and government; between workers and employers; and sometimes disputes between neighbours.
As a national trade union official for 14 years, I was involved in pay and other negotiations, mostly reaching settlements but on occasion ending in disputes and strikes which then had to be resolved.


With nearly fifty years in politics from UK Cabinet Minister to anti-apartheid campaigner, I have extensive experience of dispute resolution, problem solving, diplomacy, negotiation and conflict resolution, including in Northern Ireland securing the historic settlement of 2007 under which bitter old enemies shared government together. A former trade union national officer and current Non-Executive Director, I also have business and industrial relations experience.
