Since December’s general election, proposals for Lords reform have abounded – emerging from both government briefings, and proposals floated during Labour’s leadership contest. Meg Russell, a well-established expert on Lords reform, reviews the wide variety of options floated, their past history, and their likelihood of success – before the topic may get referred to the. Examines the debates and developments about House of Lords reform since , and notes that disagreements have occurred within, as well as between, the main political parties and governments throughout this time. It draws attention to how various proposals for reform have raised a wider range.

  But Lords reform, being a constitutional issue, will by convention be considered in detail by the House of Commons as a whole - essentially as a very large committee. It can be submitted that the membership of the House of Lords has incurred some significant changes since the early 19th Century [], with the foundation of reform being laid down by The Parliament Act [] However, the extent to which the composition has been altered is highly debatableOne can contend that the central focus of the reform appears to be the limitation of powers of the House.

But the Lords reform continues to be at the forefront of all election campaigns and has become a key part of the nation’s political discourse. While the reform process has seen a lot of positives in the century since , there is still scope for more improvements. Reform of the House of Lords is a perennial in British politics. Elections come and go, political parties often make promises to reform the Lords, and generally political obstacles of various kinds – or simply just other political priorities – get in the way.
