Fix Parliament - Time for Reform

After more than a hundred years of debates, cross-party talks, Green Papers, White Papers, Command Papers and a Royal Commission an historic Bill to reform the House of Lords has finally been introduced into Parliament by the Liberal Democrats.

These reforms do not challenge the work or talent of the dedicated individuals in the House of Lords, but challenge a tainted system. That is not a controversial belief, it was a promise made by all three political parties at the last election.

As Nick Clegg said: “There's a very simple principle at stake, which most people will agree with and Liberal Democrats have campaigned long and hard for; that the people who make the laws of the land should be elected by the people who have to obey the laws of the land.”
