    1. The most reverend prelate (just as their usual style is The Most Rev.)
    2. Three: Lords Stevens of Kirkwhelpington, Condon, Imbert
    3. I found two! Lord Knights, and Lord Dear, both Chief Constables of West Midlands. Lord Dear was Assistant Commissioner of the Met, but never Commissioner.

    OK, so question 1 should be “The Most Rev Primate”, as Baroness Ashton discovered in this debate:
    http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/ld200708/ldhansrd/text/80611-0013.htm
    An example when it can’t be corrected in Hansard as the error is referred to.

    A quick Google seems to suggest that “The Most Rev Prelate” was the form used in the 19th and first half of the 20th centuries.

    The correct answers are:

    1. An Archbishop is addressed, in the Lords, as “the most reverend Primate”.

    2. There are three former Commissioners of the Metropolitan Police in the House: Lord Imbert, Lord Condon and Lord Stevens of Kirkwhelpington.

    3. There are two former Chief Constables who are not covered by Question 2: Lord Knights and Lord Dear. Lord Knights has not been active in the House for some years, but is still a member, so either name is correct.

    Jonathan and Conor McGrath were the first to reply but, as Jonathan now realises, got the first answer incorrect. The first two to respond with all three correct answers are Michael and Ulysses. They are this week’s winners. Ulysses pipped Chris K. at the post, otherwise Chris K. would have won a total of three quizzes and an invitation to tea at the Lords.

    The roll of honour in terms of prize winners so far:

    Two wins:

    Chris K.

    One win each:
