HC Deb 28 May 1968 vol 765 cc209-10W
Mr. Alfred Morris

asked the Prime Minister if he will introduce amending legislation to allow any person who succeeded to the peerage before commencement of the Peerage Act, 1963, to disclaim his peerage without any of the time limitations laid down in that Act.

The Prime Minister

No. It would be premature to consider any amendment of the Peerage Act, 1963, before Parliament has an opportunity of considering the recommendations of the Inter-Party Conference on the reform of the House of Lords.
