To ask the Leader of the House whether the forthcoming debate on the Government's proposals for reform of the House of Lords will end in a vote, so that it is possible for the Lords' members of the Joint Committee scrutinising the Draft Bill and White Paper to be appointed to reflect accurately the views of the House as a whole.
The forthcoming debate on the Government's proposals for reform of the House of Lords set out in Cm 8077 will take place on a Motion to take note of those proposals. Such Motions are usually agreed to (Companion to the Standing Orders and Guide to the Proceedings of the House of Lords, Para. 6.54). The debate has been scheduled in order to provide an opportunity for those Members participating in the debate to put their views on record.
