Cabinet Office Questions: House of Lords Reform

I’m not one for giving up and I am determined to keep pushing for the abolition of hereditary peers from the House of Lords. These are people, 91 men and only 1 woman, who owe their ability to make laws and question the Government for no reason other than accident of birth.

The Government want to shrink the size of the democratically elected House of Commons but want to do nothing with the bloated House of Lords. All they need to do is support my Bill or the Bill of my colleague Lord Grocott and we can see the end of this undemocratic quirk in our Parliament.
