Lord Hayhoe, the former Member of Parliament for Chiswick, Brentford, Isleworth and Heston, has died the age of 88.

Barney Hayhoe was the local MP from 1970 until he retired in 1992, firstly for Heston and Isleworth and later, after boundary changes, for Brentford and Isleworth.

In Parliament, Lord Hayhoe had ministerial responsibility for the Army (1979-1981), the Civil Service (1981-1985) and the DHSS (1985-1986). He was appointed as a Privy Councillor in 1985, knighted in 1987 and made a life peer on 21 August 1992 as Baron Hayhoe of Isleworth.

He later served as chairman of Guy's and St. Thomas' NHS Trust.

During the Thatcher administration, he was a liberal, pro-European Conservative throughout the years of Eurosceptic domination of his party.

He was predeceased by his wife Anne, and is survived by two sons and a daughter.

Local MP Mary Macleod said: “I was extremely sad to hear about the death of Barney Hayhoe and my thoughts are with his family at this time.  Many local people will have fond memories of Barney and will have worked with him over his many years of service to constituents as the local Member of Parliament. He will be greatly missed. I was privileged to meet Lord Hayhoe on many occasions and am extremely thankful for his encouragement, support and kindness throughout my time as MP for Brentford & Isleworth.”
