This Library Note summarises significant proposals to change working practices and procedures in the House of Lords.Jump to full report >>
When reform of the House of Lords is discussed, both inside and outside parliament, it is reform of its composition and powers that most often commands attention. However, in the years since the departure from the House of the majority of hereditary Peers under the House of Lords Act 1999, there have been a number of proposals for reform of the working practices and procedures of the House of Lords. The purpose of this Library Note is to summarise changes that have been made, as well as reform proposals which have been discussed but not implemented.
