Hereditary Peers’ By-elections - Motion on Standing Orders (7 Sep 2020)

Lord Trefgarne: My Lords, I will not detain the House for more than a moment. As your Lordships will be well aware, I am not a supporter of the Private Member’s Bill tabled by the noble Lord, Lord Grocott, and am sure I never will be, unless circumstances change and House of Lords reform has by then been completed, which was the condition on which the hereditary noble Lords came to this House in 1999.

House of Lords (Hereditary Peers) (Abolition of By-Elections) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (13 Mar 2020)

Lord Trefgarne: I am not aware of the interest that the noble Lord wishes me to declare, but I have been here a long time.
