Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill — Establish Committee on Parliamentary Constituency Reforms — 8 Feb 2011 at 17:52

Earl Ferrers voted against establishing a committee to make recommendations on parliamentary constituency reforms.

The majority of members of the House of Lords voted against establishing a committee to make recommendations on parliamentary constituency reforms.

The House of Lords was considering the Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill[1]. The motion rejected in this vote was Amendment 16HA which would have introduced a new clause titled: "Committee of Inquiry on Parliamentary constituencies"[2].

This would have created a committee of members of the House of Commons, House of Lords, and others, chaired by a High Court judge to consider the rules for conducting Parliamentary boundary reviews, how to address the problem of unequal constituency sizes, and to consider the number of MPs.

The proposal also required the Secretary of State to bring the recommendations of the committee before Parliament.
