House of Lords: Powers

Volume 458: debated on Tuesday 13 March 2007

To ask the Leader of the House what plans he has to define the (a) powers and (b) functions of the House of Lords in future legislation. (127290)

Following the vote in the House of Lords on 14 March 2007 on composition of a reformed House, I propose to reconvene the cross-party talks, which I chair, to assess the outcome of the debates in both Houses. The Government will consider the next move and I will return to this House to make a detailed statement on the way forward.
