House of Lords

Put that at the Liaison Committee today, the Prime Minister had said that he was opposed to a fully appointed House of Lords, yet he had voted for 50%, the PMOS replied that while the Prime Minister had not changed his mind, he recognised that the Government committed itself in the last election to try and seek a consensus. Therefore, he was prepared to move his voting position in terms of trying to seek a consensus. As it turned out, there was not one.

Asked if the Prime Minister had broken his own conscience, the PMOS said that it showed how far he was prepared to go in the efforts to achieve consensus. Unfortunately, there was not a consensus between the two Houses.
