Emlyn Hooson

Tributes to the life and work of Emlyn Hooson continue to pour in from all quarters. Lord Hooson was a founder member of the Welsh Liberal weekend schools, the predecessor organisation to the Lloyd George Society and was of course the founding father of the separate Welsh Liberal Party itself.

Roger Williams, MP for Brecon and Radnorshire, who participated in the Society's school just last weekend, said: "

"This is incredibly sad news; Lord Hooson was a great servant of liberalism and to the people of Montgomeryshire and Wales. He was a great friend and family man. He will be sorely missed in Westminster and in his beloved home town of Llanidloes. My thoughts are with his family at this difficult time."
