Consultation on the size of the House of Lords


A new committee established by the Lord Speaker has launched an inquiry into how the size of the House of Lords might be reduced. The committee was set up in the wake of the House of Lords agreeing unanimously on 5 December 2016 “that this House believes that its size should be reduced, and methods should be explored by which this could be achieved”.

Submissions are sought by 5pm on 20 February and should be submitted via the website.
