22nd July


It was moved by the Chairman of Committees that the Third Report from the Select Committee be agreed to; then it was moved by the Viscount Bledisloe as an amendment thereto at end to insert ("with the following amendments:

    Page 1, line 5, leave out ("hereditary") and insert ("qualified")

    Page 1, line 6, leave out ("hereditary") and insert ("qualified")

    Page 1, line 7, leave out ("hereditary") and insert ("qualified")

    Page 1, line 8, leave out ("hereditary") and insert ("qualified")

    Page 1, line 12, at end insert--

            ("(2A)    Each of the Labour, Conservative and Liberal Democrat parties and the Cross Bench peers may decide whether the qualified peers for the party or group referred to in paragraph 2 above are to consist of
      (i)    all hereditary and life peers of that party or group, or
      (ii)    only the hereditary peers of that party or group.
            Such decision shall be notified at least one month before the date of the elections to the Clerk of the Parliaments by the leader of each party and the Convenor of the Cross Benchers. If no such notification is given by any party or group, the qualified peers of that party or group shall be deemed to be only the hereditary peers.")
    Page 2, line 11, leave out ("excepted hereditary peers") and insert ("qualified peers who are members of the House")

    Page 2, line 21, after ("Paragraphs") insert ("(2A,)")

    Page 2, line 26, leave out first ("hereditary")

    Page 3, line 11, leave out ("but the numbers voting will be smaller since only hereditary peers will be voting")");

which being objected to, the question was put thereupon, and the House divided:
