Abstract

The House of Lords has grown from 666 members to 835 members over the last thirteen years, leaving it not only larger than the House of Commons, but the largest Upper Chamber in the world. Lord Norton argued in a recent speech to the House that this was a problem that needed to be looked at seriously, and made the case for a cap on membership of the body.
