Tina Stowell

Tina Stowell is Baroness Stowell of Beeston.  She is the Leader of the House of Lords and the Lord Privy Seal.

She was raised to the peerage in January 2011 and became a Government Whip and Baroness-in-Waiting to Her Majesty The Queen in September that year.   She became the Conservative Party’s Deputy Chief Whip in September 2012 and whilst holding that position was also the Government’s spokesman in the House of Lords for Women & Equalities and responsible for the successful passage through the Upper House of the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act in 2013.  At the same time she was also a Government Spokesman for Work & Pensions and led the annual benefits Up-Rating Act in the spring of 2013 (which capped annual increases for out-of-work benefits at 1% for three years).  From October 2013 until July 2014 she was a Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Communities & Local Government.

Before being appointed to the House of Lords in January 2011, her career for the previous 25 years crisscrossed government, politics and the media.

Until September 2010, she was the BBC’s Head of Corporate Affairs. Throughout her nine years at the BBC she worked at the heart of the organisation and – as an adviser to three BBC chairmen – was involved in a number of high-profile events, including the Hutton Inquiry.

Before joining the BBC in November 2001 she ran William Hague’s office when he was Leader of the Conservative Party and was responsible for coordinating the work of teams across Conservative HQ to deliver political and campaign strategy.

She was a civil servant for ten years, working at the Ministry of Defence in London, the British Embassy in Washington and the 10 Downing Street Press Office from 1991 to 1996 when John Major was Prime Minister. At Number 10 she was the assistant to two successive press secretaries and was in charge of media planning for Prime Ministerial overseas visits.  She was awarded the MBE in 1996 for services to the Prime Minister’s office.

She spent two years away from the world of government and politics from 1996 to 1998 and enjoyed a wide range of job experiences, including a short spell at Granada Media and working for Sir David Frost at Paradine, his own independent television and film production company.

After leaving the BBC in September 2010 and whilst a backbench peer, she worked independently and offered communications advice through her own consultancy, Tina Stowell Associates.  She ceased trading in September 2011 when she joined the Government Front Bench.  Her blog remains available on this site, but all the posts pre-date her appointment to the Government.

Tina Stowell was born and brought up in Beeston, just outside of Nottingham.  She attended a local comprehensive and moved to London aged 18 to join the civil service as a secretary.  She talked briefly about her family and route from Beeston to the House of Lords in her maiden speech and how her experiences motivate her own political priorities.

In 2013 she was the Spectator’s Peer of the Year, Stonewall’s Politician of the Year and PinkNews’ Politician of the Year.

    Banks: why dont you try and trade radical, real and relevant for ring-fencing? We might listen if you do

    During Lords Questions in May this year, I asked the Government to demand the banks always pass the full tax relief on cash ISAs to their customers. I had discovered evidence of some banks offering lower interest rates on fixed […]
