The Prime Minister's brother, Jo Johnson, and the cricket star, Sir Ian Botham, are some of the 36 people who have been nominated for a seat in the House of Lords after a list of peerages was released on Friday.
The list includes Boris Johnson's selection of former members of his own party and the Tory-Granden, as well as former Labor MPs who rebelled about Brexit.
– Jo Johnson
Jo Johnson was Minister of State and Orpington MP until he left his older brother's cabinet in 2019, citing that he was "torn between family loyalty and national interest."
He was a Member of Parliament since 2010 and eight years younger than the Prime Minister.
– Ken Clarke
Former Conservative Chancellor Ken Clarke was selected for peerage by the Prime Minister after he resigned from the House of Commons in 2019.
The Remain supporter was one of 21 MPs whose whip was removed after rebelling against the government over Brexit.
