HEAR, HEAR FOR LORD PO­LAK

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT -

ONE gov­ern­ment sup­porter who does value the NHS is the new Tory peer, Lord Po­lak, who in his maiden speech in the Lords re­called how the ser­vice had saved his life af­ter the dis­cov­ery of a brain tu­mour.

Al­though left deaf in one ear, that has some­times been quite use­ful, he said, “I am aware that, to­day, I have not been in­ter­rupted — but I am also aware that this cour­tesy is for to­day only. So I apol­o­gise if, in fu­ture, a no­ble Lord wants to in­ter­vene and I carry on speak­ing: it will just be that I did not hear them.”
