Duke of Buccleuch

It was announced earlier today (Tuesday) that the Duke of Buccleuch had died aged 83. He was the MP for North Edinburgh from 1960-73, and served as Parliamentary Private Secretary to both Jack Maclay and Michael Noble as Secretaries of State for Scotland from 1962-64. The Daily Telegraph, as usual, has a lengthy obituary, as does The Times, while I did one for today's Scotsman; today's Independent also has a typically personal account by Tam Dalyell.
