Personal Quote:

[during his resignation speech, referring to Mrs Thatcher's approach to European negotiations] It's rather like sending your opening batsmen to the crease, only for them to find, the moment the first balls are bowled, that their bats have been broken before the game by the team captain.


His wife,born Elspeth Morton Shand, was made a life peer in her own right as Lady Howe of Idlicote in 2001. She had chaired the Broadcasting Standards Commission.
