Motion to Take Note (2nd Day)
Draft House of Lords Reform Bill
Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton (Labour)
Was the question put to the public for a mandate to serve on a similar term to that in the Commons or for Peers to be elected for 15 years and then be unable to stand again? To me, that is not democratic accountability; it is an appointment for someone to say whatever they like for the next 15 years.
