Lords Reform questions answered

Liberal Democrat Peer, Lord Tyler, has published a factual summary of the recommendations of the recent Joint Committee on the Draft House of Lords Reform Bill.

As a member of the Committee, Lord Tyler took part in 30 meetings, which looked at all the issues around reform in detail. 

The Coalition Government’s Draft Bill and White Paper draws on a decade of cross-party talks and deliberation, including from the Wakeham Royal Commission (2000), a previous Joint Commitee (2002), the Public Administration Select Committee (2002/3), the Breaking the Deadlock cross-party group (2005) and two Labour Whie Papers in 2007 and 2008.
