Abstract

Reform of the House of Lords is badly needed. The fundamental agreements between the recommendations of the Royal Commission and the Draft Bill shows that the most radical reforms can and should be carried out now. When the report of the Royal Commission was first published, it was pushed aside because both those in favour of an elected house and those in favour of an appointed house united to oppose the idea of a hybrid. Richard Harries argues that we need to look seriously at the idea of a hybrid house, even if not in the proportions put forward by the Draft Bill.
