House of Lords Procedure

House of Lords

The Dods Monitoring Team has considered the powers of the Lords, the process by which they scrutinise—or have the ability to veto primary legislation—and how pertinent this is in light of a hung Parliament. The briefing outlines the process, relevant convention and procedure, and considers which legislation might be at risk from the Opposition, both in the Commons and – given their numerical advantage —in the Lords. It also provides a useful overview of next steps and the key people involved.
