Political profile:
Douglas Hogg is the son of former Lord Chancellor Lord Hailsham, is a former president of the Oxford Union and entered the Commons in 1979 at the beginning of 18 years of Conservative rule.

His wife was awarded a peerage in 1995 after heading the Downing Street Policy Unit for John Major.

He himself became a government minister in 1986 and joined the Cabinet in 1995.

Despite this lineage, he was returned to the back benches in 1997 after being minister for agriculture at the height of the BSE crisis.

Since leaving the frontbench, he has continued his career as a barrister but still pops up to blast vitriol at Labour.

He has always been on the soft-left of the Conservative Party and has in the past supported modest constitutional reform.
