Lady Parker

I'm sorry to learn of the death of Lady Parker, the wife of the late Sir Peter Parker, the former chairman of British Rail.
Her obituary in today's Times states: "She is survived by her four children: Lucy, Alan, Nathaniel, the actor, and Oliver, the film director." Indeed so, but why doesn't Alan's career warrant a mention? Last time I heard he was one of the Square Mile's most influential players, as founder and boss of City PR giants Brunswick.
