We will implement our commitment in our Programme for Government to abolish the Standards Board regime as soon as practicable, and hence intend to include provisions in the Bill which will devolve greater powers to councils, announced in the Queen's Speech for this parliamentary session, to repeal the provisions of the Local Government Act 2000 which established the Standards Board for England.

Any legislation which has passed through the Lords since 2000 is null and void, because the legislation to alter the letters of patent for Hereditary Lords is unlawful, and only refers to the Lords in General.
Therefore all legislation even this proposed bill to repeal will be unlawful, because the House of Lords has been compromised.
