Venue: Council Room, The Constitution Unit

Established in July this year, The Joint Committee on the Draft House of Lords Reform Bill was tasked with examining the case for a largely or wholly elected second chamber and the likely impact of such reforms on the relationship between the two Houses. The Committee has been busy receiving written and oral evidence over the last few months, and is scheduled to report in February 2012. As two of its members, Labour peer Baroness Symons and Liberal Democrat peer Lord Tyler presented their inside take on the findings to date, and their views on the Lords reform agenda more generally.
