Abstract

William O’Brochta considers whether unelected legislators – in this case House of Lords peers – respond immediately to crises by increasing their attendance in debates. Using data covering the years 1999-2014, he finds that peers increased their attendance only after Lords reform debates in either House, rather than after more public crises such as natural disasters or terrorist attacks.
