Reforming the House of Lords

This article examines the development of the House of Lords – the
second chamber of the British Parliament – and explains its longevity
as a legislative chamber composed of members who serve by reason of
inheriting a title or being appointed to serve for life. It outlines major
reforms of the House, including the removal in 1999 of most hereditary
members. It analyses the reasons for the approach taken by the
Labour Government of Tony Blair and examines the different arguments
advanced in the current debate about the future shape of the
second chamber. In particular, it seeks to explain why the Government
moved to remove hereditary members of the House of Lords without,
at the same time, substituting its own proposals for a reformed second
chamber.
