Peter Temple-Morris, Baron Temple-Morris

Peter Temple-Morris, Baron Temple-Morris (born 12 February 1938) is a Welsh politician in British politics. He was elected as a Conservative Member of Parliament for Leominster in 1974.

Temple-Morris was suspended from the party in 1997 because he had "repeatedly and publicly questioned his continued commitment to the Conservative Party".

From 1997 to 1998 he sat on the government Labour benches, but did not take the whip, instead sitting as a one-man 'Independent One-Nation Conservative' group. However in 1998 he joined the Labour party but stood down as an MP in the 2001 general election. He was made a Life peer in 2001 as Baron Temple-Morris, of Llandaff in the County of South Glamorgan and of Leominster in the County of Herefordshire. He sits in the House of Lords as a Labour peer.
