Do not alter the Composition of the House of Lords for mere Party Political ends
This petition had 125 supporters
The Government is threatening to pack the House of Lords with its supporters in order to assure the passage of its controversial Brexit Bill.
This would undermine the UK's delicate unwritten Constitution and give yet more power to the Executive at the expense of Parliament.
It is a threat to our Democracy and must be stopped.
The Government already has a mechanism to over-rule the House of Lords, if need be; the Parliament Acts. Their threat to disrupt the composition of the upper house is therefore an unnecessary power-grab and would be likely to result, yet again, in legal challenge.
They must avoid reliance on ‘dirty tricks’ and defend their policies, if they can, on the evidence.
