We are particularly fortunate that Baroness Buscombe has agreed to be our guest speaker at our annual St George’s Day talk this year.

Peta Buscombe is a distinguished figure in public life with a career that has spanned a whole range of diverse areas.

Educated at Epsom and the Inns of Court School of Law she was called to the Bar in 1977.  Her legal career including acting for the Dairy Trade Federation, a Legal Counsel for Barclays Bank and the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising.  She was joint managing partner of an International Art Business from 1991-95.  She stood as the conservative candidate for Slough at the 1997 General Election.  In July 1998 she was created a Life Peer as Baroness Buscombe, of Goring.  She has since been a conservative front bench spokesman in the House of Lords on several briefs including business innovation and skills, culture media and sport, education, and constitutional and legal affairs.  She is currently the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for the Department of Work and Pensions and a Baroness in Waiting to the Queen.  Previously she had been a Government Whip.

In 2009 she became the chair of the Press Complaints Commission at a turbulent time when the relationship between Parliament, the police, high profile public figures and the media was very much in the public eye. She held this difficult post until 2011.
