Doug Hoyle (Lord) is an ex-government whip and former MP for Warrington.

On 26 October 2007, The Guardian reported:

The lobbyist paid cash for an introduction to Lord Paul Drayson, the defence minister in charge of billions of pounds of military procurement... The lobbyist, Michael Wood, who trades as Whitehall Advisers, agreed to pay Lord Hoyle an undisclosed sum in June 2005. MoD documents released to the Guardian show that Lord Hoyle then engineered a private meeting between Mr Wood and the newly appointed defence minister.
There was no objection to Lord Hoyle, a former government whip, taking up three new jobs since he left the government in May last year. These are as a consultant to Greenalls Group, the brewers, as well as being chairman of Wire (FM) and a parliamentary specialist to Whitehall Advisers who have defence clients.[2]
