HOUSE OF LORDS REFORM BILL

- Monday, 9th July 2012

 

House of Lords

Mr Lilley: In his preamble to the draft Bill, the Deputy Prime Minister wrote:

"The House of Lords performs its work well”.

Is he saying that it works in practice, but not in theory?

The Deputy Prime Minister: I think that it is both flawed in theory, because of its lack of democratic legitimacy, and flawed in practice, because the status quo is unsustainable, as I shall now explain.
