Lords reform

Asked about details of the programme motion, the PMS said that the PM had answered this question at his press conference. Sir George Young would be opening the debate for the Government shortly and would be setting out the Government’s position.

Asked what the PM’s message to his back benchers was, the PMS said that he did not wish to pre-empt Sir George Young, but there was a significant majority in favour of reforming the House of Lords and the Government wanted to proceed with consensus.

Asked if further conversations had taken place with Ed Miliband, the PMS said to his knowledge they had not.

On the matter of a possible referendum, the PMS said the Government had already set out its position on that issue.
