Tony Giffard, 3rd Earl of Halsbury
Giffard was Managing Director of the National Research Development Corporation 1949–1959, after having been Director of Research of Decca Record Company 1947–1949, and previously worked for Lever Brothers, and Brown-Firth Research Laboratories. Subsequently he served on many public bodies, including chairing the Committee on Decimal Currency (1961–1963). Between 1966 and 1997 he was Chancellor of Brunel University.
In 1986 he tabled a Private Member's Bill in the House of Lords entitled "An act to refrain local authorities from promoting homosexuality"; it failed, but led to the enactment of the similar Section 28 two years later.
