He served as parliamentary private secretary to John MacGregor during the latter's tenure as Minister of Agriculture (1987-9), Secretary of State for Education and Science (1989–90) and Leader of the House of Commons (1990–92). He supported Margaret Thatcher when Michael Heseltine challenged for the leadership of the Conservative party in 1990. Defeated by Labour's Paddy Tipping in 1992, he later chaired the Agricultural Training Board and served on the Rural Development Commission. He was re-elected to the county council in 2002, serving until 2013. Stewart was the chairman of Hucknall Town F.C. before becoming the Honorary Life President. Stewart died following a short illness, surrounded by his family, on 6 October 2013, aged 76, in Caunton, Nottinghamshire. (en)
