Aged just 36 she became the youngest peer in Parliament after being elevated to the House of Lords and travelled to Sudan to secure the release of British teacher Gillian Gibbons who was on trial for blasphemy.

She also spearheaded the party’s Social Action agenda both domestically and internationally.
