House of Lords reform

Asked if the Prime Minister had a fixed view on the composition of the House of Lords, the PMOS replied that the Prime Minister would wait for the White Paper to be published. We would then prepare for the free vote in Parliament, and the Prime Minister, as in the past on other such issues, would not express an opinion in advance of that, because he would not want to be seen to direct a free vote.

Asked if the Prime Minister would vote, the PMOS said that he suspected that the Prime Minister would vote.
