HC Deb 30 June 1955 vol 543 cc497-8
45. Mr. E. Fletcher

asked the Prime Minister the details of the Government's proposals for the reform of the other House mentioned in the Gracious Speech.

The Prime Minister (Sir Anthony Eden)

I am not at present in a position to go beyond the reference to this subject in the Gracious Speech.

Mr. Fletcher

Will the Prime Minister bear in mind that any constitutional changes contemplated in regard to the rights of another place to exclude Peers who do not attend very regularly are matters of interest to Parliament as a whole? Will he see that this House is kept informed of the Government's intentions in that respect?

The Prime Minister

I do not think that there is anything to which I need take exception in what the hon. Gentleman has just said.
