Conservative Life peers Lord Magan of Castletown, Lord Grade of Yarmouth and Baroness Jenkin of Kennington took their seats in the House of Lords following short introduction ceremonies at the beginning of business on Thursday 27 January.

The introduction ceremony must take place in the Lords Chamber before each new Member is able to take their seat in the House.
