Westminster Hall Debate: House of Lords Reform

The absurd-ism that is the hereditary principle in the Houses of Parliament still continues, despite my Bill sitting ready and waiting for the Government to adopt it and remove hereditary peers.

In today’s Westminster Hall Debate I pressed for the removal of the remaining 92 hereditary peers who have their place in our parliament through accident of birth alone. It is clearly wrong that people who have no direct accountability to the public are able to make our laws, question our government and use the Houses of Parliament. I will continue to press on this matter until the hereditary peers are removed from our democracy.
