HC Deb 23 February 1922 vol 150 cc2096-7
41. Captain BENN

asked the Prime Minister whether the resolutions for constitutional reform which it is intended to introduce into the House of Lords contain any resolution which would curtail the present power of the House of Commons; and, if so, why such a resolution is not to be submitted first for the approval of this House?


I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the answer which I gave to him on Monday last in reply to a question on this subject.

Captain BENN

Is the right hon. Gentleman prepared to say that the veto of the House of Lords is gone, and gone for ever?


I think that the hon. and gallant Gentleman has got on the wrong bench.
