This Library Note summarises a selection of the literature published on the subject of Lords reform. It begins with broader material covering the subject as a whole, before focusing on more specific themes, including powers, composition, remuneration, and the relationship between the two Houses. The summaries aim to provide a concise rather than comprehensive overview of the various arguments expressed by the authors, and in doing so present a range of opinions and perspectives. The Note only covers work published between 1999 and April 2012, with an emphasis on items published in academic articles and blogs, as well as books, but excluding the large volume of newspaper articles and correspondence on this subject. Further coverage of developments and government publications on the subject can be found in the House of Lords Library Note House of Lords Reform 1997–2010: A Chronology (July 2011, LLN 2011/025).
