House of Lords Reform

Baroness D'Souza

This was published today in the Times and brings the total correspondence in the past couple of weeks to five letters of which four strongly support if not a wholly appointed House of Lords at least a plea that the forthcoming White Paper takes the majority vote in favour of an all appointed House into account. The letter in favour of the wholly elected or 80/20 elected House came from, no surprises here, the Minister Lord Hunt of Kings Heath.

There has also been some consternation that in answer to a written question the Lord Chancellor and Justice Minister replied that it was not, in his view, in the public interest to distribute the Minutes of the Cross Party Group on Lords Reform.
