Former Canterbury and Whitstable MP Sir Julian Brazier has not been given a peerage.
Reports surfaced last night which suggested that the 64-year-old, who lives in Petham, would be ennobled by Prime Minister Theresa May.
But Sir Julian’s name was not among those on a list of nominations of people who would be receiving peerages.
- I’d happily pay an extra tenner a year for better roads – wouldn’t you?
- Why would anyone just throw hundreds of bottles of wine away?
They included former Conservative cabinet minister Peter Lilley and Iain McNicol, former general secretary of the Labour Party.
Sir Julian represented the constituency from 1987 to 2017.
His defeat to Rosie Duffield in June last year was one of the shock results of the 2017 election.
Earlier this month, Sir Julian was rapped by a parliamentary watchdog for failing to properly disclose job appointments following his career as a politician.
