Following his elevation as a Life Peer in 2014, Lisvane sits as a crossbencher in the House of Lords.

He is also a member of the Steering Committee of the Constitution Reform Group (CRG),[2] a cross-party organisation which is chaired by Robert Gascoyne-Cecil, 7th Marquess of Salisbury which seeks a new constitutional settlement in the UK by way of a new Act of Union.[3] Lord Lisvane introduced the Act of Union Bill 2018 as a Private Member’s Bill in the House of Lords on 9 October 2018, when it received a formal first reading. The BBC has suggested that the issues addressed by the Bill are likely to become important in the 2019 Parliament.[4]
