§ Lord Hylton
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What progress has been made to date in determining the appropriate criteria for disqualification in the future from election to the House of Commons.
§ The Lord Privy Seal (Baroness Young)
Any changes in the provisions for disqualification from the House of Commons are, of course, a matter for that House. However, my right honourable friend the Leader of that House did, last year, commission a review by officials of the working of the present legislation. It is hoped to publish a factual analysis from that work in due course.
