Lord Morris of Aberavon is one of Wales’s most famous and influential figures. This personal account of his life covers his illustrious career at the heart of Welsh and Westminster politics as attorney general. Trained as a barrister, he went on to serve as parliamentary secretary, minister of state, and secretary of state. He returned to government twenty years later as attorney general for England and Wales, and thus became one of the few Labour ministers to hold office under Harold Wilson, James Callaghan, and Tony Blair.
