Hereditary Peers By-election

Volume 834: debated on Thursday 23 November 2023


The Clerk of the Parliaments announced the result of the by-election to elect a hereditary Peer, in place of Lord Brougham and Vaux, in accordance with Standing Order 9.

Two hundred and fifty-nine Lords submitted valid ballots. A notice detailing the results is in the Printed Paper Office and online. That paper gives the number of votes cast for each candidate. The successful candidate was Lord Camoys.

My Lords, at this time, the House usually hears from my noble friend Lord Grocott. He is indisposed at the moment and much regrets his not being able to be here. He has authorised me to say that he continues to be distressed that the Government are not fast-tracking his Bill to stop this regular farce, which damages the reputation of this good House.
