England cricket hero enters House of Lords – Sir Ian Botham sworn in as a peer
Sir Ian Botham made his first appearance as a peer in the House of Lords Monday October 5. Brexit backer, Lord Botham donned the traditional scarlet and ermine-trimmed robe for his introduction ceremony and swore the oath of allegiance to the Queen.
Technical problems delayed the start of proceedings, with Lord Speaker Lord Fowler joking; “I think rain has stopped play just for the moment.”
He was confident as he read out the all important words before he signed the book of Lords.
