Putting Ipswich on the Legal Map!
The new Lord Chancellor puts Ipswich on the legal map! David Gauke was appointed Lord Chancellor in Theresa May’s New Year reshuffle. David was born in Ipswich. He is a solicitor and known as a reliable pair of hands. He is not high profile and it is even rumoured that he is rather boring!
David is a lifelong supporter of the Tractor Boys and was there when they scored the Premier League record defeat of 9-0 at Manchester United in 1994. He is also keen on cricket and walks in the country. That will go down well in Suffolk, as will his reported liking for Adnams Ale. Hopefully David will be a very effective Chancellor and help lower the current barriers to justice in Suffolk and beyond caused by the widespread cuts in legal aid.
