Lords ought to be accountable

Published 17/06/2013

WE would all agree with MPs wanting a new law so constituents can recall an MP for not performing up to the job and vote them out of office. This is not possible with the House of Lords.

At present nobody can vote a member of the House of Lords out of office. It is time to make the Lords a fully-elected chamber.
