Political and Constitutional Reform CommitteeWritten evidence submitted by Charlie Thacker

Impose sanctions of expulsion on those lords who constantly aren’t punctual for months at a time. Perhaps sanctions of lowered pay and or exclusions for less drastic incidents of lack of punctuality. Similar sanctions to which party whips can impose on their party members. These sanctions will be imposed by a vote in the lords with the individual in question denied a vote in, or by an ELECTED official who remains impartial and unbiased in the matter of choosing sanctions.
