Pre-announcement speculationEdit

Speculation about a number of potential peerage recipients has appeared in The Guardian. Its political correspondent wrote on 11 July 2022 that Nadine Dorries, former Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and MP for Mid Bedfordshire, Paul Dacre, former editor of The Daily Mail, and Allegra Stratton, journalist, former Downing Street Press Secretary, and spouse of James Forsyth, political editor of The Spectator, had been mentioned.[1] Its policy editor wrote on 16 July that Nigel Adams, Minister of State without Portfolio and MP for Selby and Ainsty was also mentioned.[2]

Writing in an opinion piece in The Times, Jon Yeomans speculated that David Ross, a donor to the Conservative Party, might receive an honour.[3]
