The story of one of the few Ministers who served in all four Labour Governments under Harold Wilson, James Callaghan and Tony Blair. As Attorney General he developed the doctrine of armed intervention in the affairs of another state, Kosovo, without a Security Council Resolution, in order to avert an overwhelming humanitarian disaster and appeared as Counsel before the International Court of Justice to defend the U.K.’s position.

Eventually his life-work, creating Welsh institutions was fulfilled following two later referendums.
