HL Deb 14 July 1983 vol 443 c970WA
Lord Airedale

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether, since it is Peers of Parliament who are incapable under common law of voting at parliamentary elections. and since the Lords Spiritual are not Peers of Parliament, they accept that no such incapacity applies to Lords Spiritual.

Lord Elton

Questions of law are for the courts, not Her Majesty's Government.
