Becoming Earl of Iveagh from his father's death, he sat regularly as a hereditary peer in the House of Lords from 18 June 1992. He was one of the youngest peers, and did not join a political party but sat as a crossbencher. On 11 November 1999, he was among the bulk of peers who lost all political power on the removal of all but 92 from the Lords with the House of Lords Act 1999.
Lord Iveagh lives on the 22,486-acre (91 km2) Elveden Estate in Suffolk, England (2.6% of the county). The land is productive in the modern global economy as a one-unit arable farm for root vegetables most seasons, growing cereals as a break crop. Approximately 4,000 acres (16 km2) is forest.
