The Clerk of the Parliaments:

My Lords, with the leave of the House, I am now able to announce the result of the by-election to elect a Cross-Bench hereditary Peer, in the place of the late Baroness Strange, in accordance with Standing Order 10.

Twenty-eight Lords completed valid ballot papers. A paper setting out the complete results is being made available in the Printed Paper Office and the Library. That paper gives the number of votes cast for each candidate.

The successful candidate was Viscount Montgomery of Alamein.
