About Paul Tyler

Paul Tyler flies the Cornish Flag

At the 2005 General Election Paul Tyler retired as MP for North Cornwall, after serving the county for a total of some 14 years. In addition to his relentless campaigning on a broad range of issues during his time in the House of Commons, Paul also served the Liberal Democrat Front Bench as Chief Whip and most subsequently as Shadow Leader of the House.

Paul was subsequently made a working peer and introduced to the House of Lords in June 2005. He is now Liberal Democrat spokesman in the Lords on constitutional reform issues, and served on the 2006 Joint Committee on Conventions, which examined and set out the relationship between the House of Lords and the House of Commons.  He later sat on the cross-party group convened to assist in preparation a White Paper on Lords Reform, and on the joint committee of MPs and Peers who contributed to the 2012 Bill.

In 2015 he has led debates on extending the franchise to 16 and 17 year olds, following the successful experiment in the Scottish Referendum, and on supporting the Electoral Commission in its opposition to Government changes to the timetable for Individual Electoral Registration.

This site will serves as a portal for the issues which Paul continues to raise in the UK Parliament and is regularly updated.
