Here is the latest nomination in our series highlighting people David Cameron should consider appointing to the House of Lords, since any Conservative administration formed after the general election would be able to call upon the support of the lowest number of Conservative peers in history.
If you would like to nominate someone, please email Jonathan Isaby with your suggestion, including key arguments for the nomination as well as biographical information. The sources of nominations will be treated confidentially where requested.
No. 62: Jonathan Fisher QC
A reader from London writes:
"He is a highly regarded criminal lawyer, who has been chairman of research of the Society of Conservative Lawyers in recent years.
"Jonathan has published a number of important pamphlets on legal matters, not least his 2006 publication, A British Bill of Rights and Obligations. Highly critical of the European Convention on Human Rights, it was published by the Conservative Liberty Forum. He has also long been a vocal advocate of allowing intercept evidence to be admissible in criminal proceedings.
"A member of the Conservative Party’s Bill of Rights Commission, he has assisted senior members of the Shadow Front Bench team at the highest level and would be an invaluable addition to Parliament if granted a seat in the Upper House."
