E-COMMERCE pioneer Martha Lane Fox is to join the House of Lords as a non-political peer, it emerged today.

The co-founder of travel website lastminute.com - who is Prime Minister David Cameron’s “digital champion” - will sit on the crossbenches.

She will be joined in the upper chamber by composer and broadcaster Michael Berkeley, the independent House of Lords Appointments Commission said.
