We assume the event was some sort of Conservative garden party or fundraising event for the Party.

He was elected in 1983 and had a series of ministerial posts in Margaret Thatcher and then John Major’s governments. He lost his seat to Labour’s Judy Mallaber in 1997. After leaving politics he became a newspaper columnist and is now a businessman.
