Death of former Cabinet secretary Lord Heywood of Whitehall

- Former Cabinet Secretary Baron Heywood of Whitehall, who has died from cancer, sadly makes history as the life peer to have enjoyed the shortest tenure of a peerage - nine days....

From The Gazette: 
THE QUEEN has been pleased by Letters Patent under the Great Seal of the Realm dated 26 October 2018 to confer the dignity of a Barony of the United Kingdom for life upon Sir Jeremy John Heywood, K.C.B., C.V.O., by the name, style and title of BARON HEYWOOD OF WHITEHALL, of Glossop in the County of Derbyshire
