One of the primary movers for the Welsh Assembly referendum in 1997. His wife is Elinor Bennett, the internationally renowned harpist.

Normally easy going he apparently once became so angry about a procedural point in the House of Commons that he hit the arm of the Speaker's chair and snapped it off!
