HC Deb 14 December 1908 vol 198 cc1281-2

I beg to ask the Prime Minister whether the attention of the Government has been directed to a Report from a Select Committee of the House of Lords, of which Lord Rosebery was the Chairman, on the House of Lords with a view to the reform of that body; whether he is aware of Lord Rosebery's declaration in the House of Lords in the year 1884, that reforms in the House of Lords would not be carried out by previous appointment of a Select Committee, but by a proposal coming from Ministers of the Crown.


The Government are not prepared to take any action on the Report in question.
