Tom Mullarkey MBE, RoSPA chief executive, said: "Lord Hunt brings a wealth of parliamentary experience to bear on RoSPA's many campaigns. His advice and guidance are superb and he has already started to have an impact as our deputy president. He and Lord Jordan now make a formidable combination to influence our agenda in the House of Lords and in wider political circles."

Lord Hunt was a Wirral MP from 1976-1997 and a member of the Government from 1979-1995, serving in the Cabinet as Secretary of State for Wales, Secretary of State for Employment and Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster.

He has been a member of the Privy Council since 1990 and was made a life peer in 1997.
He has been a partner in Beachcroft, one of the largest national commercial law firms in the UK, since 1969 and was senior partner from 1996-2005. He is now chairman of its Financial Services Division and was president of the Chartered Insurance Institute from 2007-2008.

Lord Hunt is also president of the All Party Group on Occupational Safety and Health and is an honorary member of the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management, and an honorary vice-president of the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health.
