House of Lords: Reform
Deputy Prime Minister
Simon Hart (Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire, Conservative)
Mark Harper (Parliamentary Secretary (Political and Constitutional Reform), Cabinet Office; Forest of Dean, Conservative)
The Government have received more than two thousand representations since the publication of our White Paper and draft House of Lords Reform Bill in May last year. A detailed breakdown of the correspondence on House of Lords reform has not been undertaken but the majority are concerned with the question of reserved places for Church of England Bishops in a reformed House of Lords.
