The House of Lords Reform White Paper and draft Bill 2011 and a simpler alternative


A consideration of the House of Lords Reform White Paper and draft Bill 2011 arguing that the proposals they contain to transform the House of Lords into a democratically legitimate second chamber follow from false choice and involve high cost and level of complexity. The author sets out a simpler proposal, developed from his submission to the Parliamentary Joint Committee on the draft House of Lords Reform Bill. Article by James Hand, Associate Senior Lecturer, School of Law, Portsmouth Business School, University of Portsmouth.
