Unexpected attention

_39082269_lordsstill_300The House of Lords yesterday (Friday) debated the House of Lords Reform (No. 2) Bill.  It has already been taken through the Commons by Dan Byles MP and was introduced in the Lords by Lord Steel.  The Bill is a short version of the original Steel Bill.  Because I had a longstanding speaking commitment in Glasgow, I missed the debate.  However, there were several and very kind references to me, in part because I drafted the original Steel Bill and because of my role as convenor of the Campaign for an Effective Second Chamber.  I wasn’t expecting to be the subject of such comment.  Perhaps I should consider missing more debates…

Much more importantly, the Bill received an unopposed Second Reading.
