Tom Elliott appointed Baron of Ballinamallard

Fermanagh and South Tyrone MLA Tom Elliott has been “styled and titled” as Baron Elliott of Ballinamallard.

Last week, as the general election counting was well under way, it was announced the former FST MP had been appointed to the House of Lords. However, it was unclear what his exact title would be.

Now the Ulster Unionist Party has confirmed it will be Baron Elliott of Ballinamallard.


“We are most pleased to announce that our party colleague Tom Elliott MLA will be styled and titled Baron Elliott of Ballinamallard,” said a spokesman for the Fermanagh and South Tyrone Unionist Association.

“The Baron has been a long standing and loyal member of our association for many years and we are overjoyed at the news of his elevation to the House of Lords. This great honour reflects the steadfast and unwavering commitment he has shown to the people of Fermanagh and South Tyrone over his two decades of public service.

“As a son of Ballinamallard it is most pleasing that the Baron has been chosen to share this honour with his home roots.

“Baron Elliott will be fantastic addition to the red benches in the House of Lords within the Palace of Westminster. Baron Elliott of Ballinamallard will continue to serve in the ‘interim’ as Member of the Legislative Assembly for Fermanagh and South Tyrone”.
