HC Deb 03 August 1961 vol 645 c219W
80. Mr. Longden

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he now proposes to introduce legislation to enable a person who succeeds to a peerage to renounce that peerage so that it would remain in abeyance during his own lifetime.

Mr. R. A. Butler

This is included in the terms of reference of the Joint Select Committee which it is proposed to set up to consider this and other aspects of the matter.
