There is a very good article by Conor Burns, MP for Bournemouth West, in the latest issue of Total Politics. You can read the article here. He makes the point that the current debate is about who should sit in the Lords rather than about what it should do. He contends that what it does it does well and he is not persuaded by the arguments for election.
Ladytizzy’s recent comment, referring to evidence she has submitted to the Joint Commitee on the Draft House of Lords Reform Bill, prompts me to remind any readers wishing to submit evidence that it should ideally be submitted by 12 October. You can see the call for evidence here.
