Patrons line-up strengthened

Posted: November 29th, 2020

IAN AUSTIN, now Lord Austin of Dudley, who was previously a Patron in the House of Commons for the AMP when he was a Labour then independent MP, has agreed to continue his support for us in the House of Lords. He sits in the Lords as a non-affiliated life peer, i.e independent.

Among several posts as an MP in both government and Opposition, Ian Austin served as Shadow Minister for Work and Pensions. Lord Austin told Tom Brown, AMP’s life vice-president: “I would love to continue as your friend in Parliament.”

Tom Brown said: “I’m delighted. Ian is a good watchdog and spokesman and very on the ball. He’s well respected across party lines.”

Gerald Mowbray, AMP’s secretary, added: “We have regained another strong voice for AMP members in Parliament.”
