Former Scottish Conservative Leader, Ruth Davidson, will join the House of Lords on Tuesday, and will take the title Baroness Davidson of Lundin Links, the Fife village where she spent her childhood.
She becomes the fifth former Scottish party leader to be appointed to the House of Lords, following the appointments of Jack McConnell (Lab), Jim Wallace and Nicol Stephen (Lib Dem), and Annabel Goldie (Con). There is one current MSP, Katy Clark (Lab), who is also a current member of the House of Lords.
Ms Davidson will be introduced in the Upper Chamber by Mark McInnes, director of the Scottish Conservatives and Richard Keen, former chairman of the Scottish Conservatives and former Advocate General.
