Cedric Gilson, Visiting Fellow in Law at the University of Westminster, published an article for The Conversation on a recent report suggesting the reduction of the size of the House of Lords.

Following a report suggesting the significant reduction of the House of Lords over the next decade to make it more efficient, Cedric Gilson commented: “Whether the report represents a transitional phase in total reform or is merely a sticking plaster depends on how it is received by severe critics of the Lords.

“For some, only total abolition of the House ever will satisfy. For others, elections for membership. This partial approach does not deal with its relation to government – which is a more crucial problem. For the moderate observer, though, this might be the initial brave step in progressive self-regulation”, he added.
